Kansas City, Kansas (The Adobo Chronicles) – The Giants and Royals head back to Kansas City on Tuesday for Game 6 of the World Series which now stands at 3-2 in favor of the Giants.

Yesterday’s Giants victory at AT&T Park was bittersweet for the San Francisco team after that embarrassing botched rendition of the national anthem by rock artist now country singer Aaron Lewis.

The Royals don’t want to undergo the same embarrassment, so they decided to bring in pop star Justin Bieber to sing the Star-spangled banner.

A spokesperson for the Royals told reporters that even if Bieber messes up with his lyrics, it wouldn’t be such a big deal since he is Canadian.

A clever move by the Royals.

MICHELE BACHMANN FILES BILL TO SCRAP NATIONAL ANTHEM FROM BALL GAMES

San Francisco, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – It happened yet again, before tens of thousands of spectators and millions of television viewers.

Grammy Award-nominated recording artist Aaron Lewis came out to sing the Star-spangled banner at AT&T Park before Game 5 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals. He botched the lyrics and had one “gallantly streaming” too many.

The U.S. National Anthem is now officially the “most murdered song lyrics” of all time.  Thanks to Lewis and the likes of Roseanne Barr, Christina Aguilera, Carl Lewis, Michael Bolton and many other celebrities. A quick Google search will show you all the embarrassing moments of our flag.

Republican Senator Michele Bachmann of Minessota wants to put a stop to this madness. Today, she filed a bill in Congress seeking  to scrap the singing of the national anthem at baseball, football and other ball games, especially during the World Series or the Super Bowl.

“We need to respect the one song that binds us all together — Republicans, Democrats and Independents. If we can’t sing it right, let’s not sing it at all, ” Bachmann said.

In her bill , Bachmann proposed that the singing of the national anthem during ball games be replaced instead with a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. But to make sure that no one messes up the pledge, she also proposed that cheat sheets bearing the correct verses of the pledge be distributed to all those in attendance at the ball games.

“We can still make a spectacle out of it, ” she said, suggesting, for example, that the pledge be followed by the firing of handguns and AK-47s into the air. The National Rifle Association (NRA) said it would support Bachmann’s bill, promising to be a major sponsor of ball games nationwide.

Bachmann hopes to gather bi-partisan support for her bill. “This will be my legacy in Congress,” she said.

WARNER BROS. WILL FILM A REMAKE OF ‘WIZARD OF OZ’ IF THE SF GIANTS WIN THE WORLD SERIES

imageHollywood, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Whether or not one is a fan of The Wizard of Oz, the famous line from the 1939 film, ‘Toto, we’re not in Kansas any more’ is all too familiar.

There has never been a remake (other than some adaptations) of the film that made a name for Judy Garland, but now, Warner Bros. has issued  a wager that could bring the most excitement about the 2014 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals. The 7-game baseball  championship starts Tuesday, October 21.

The Hollywood production company has just announced that if the SF Giants win what could be their third World Series title in five years, it will film a remake of The Wizard Of Oz with a major re-write of the script.

The ‘new’ story will begin in San Francisco instead of Kansas, with Dorothy gazing at the giant rainbow flag on Market and Castro, singing the classic ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow.’ Then a thick San Francisco fog envelopes her which will eventually bring her to Munchkin Country.

Warner Bros. said that a casting call will be held as soon as the World Series is over and that the role of Dorothy will be reserved for a deserving and talented gay man who must be a San Francisco resident, preferrably the Castro.

So start rooting for the SF Giants!
