This year’s NL Champions have already proven they’ve got few reservations about sending a noted wifebeater to the mound, but who knew their American League counterparts were just as open-minded? The St. Petersburg Times reported earlier today that San Angelo’s Los Lonely Boys will perform the national anthem prior to Game 2 of the World Series Sunday night. Said invite was issued despite a) the trio’s flagging career fortunes and b) the rhythm section’s unfortunate habit of being charged with assualting women.
The Garza Brothers (no relation to Rays hurler Matt) haven’t been convicted of any such thing, but Delmon Young was shipped outta town for lesser offenses. On the other hand, when considering the local alternatives, perhaps inviting ringers from Texas makes perfect sense.
