Spring training singer flubs both anthems at Jays game
By JOE WARMINGTON, QMI Agency
Everybody knows there’s no crying in baseball.
Unless, of course, you find yourself singing the national anthems at a Blue Jays game and blowing both of them.
Poor tenor Jeff Fuller knows all about it.
And thanks to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube so does just about everybody else.
“Horrifying version of O Canada being attempted here,” tweeted Fan590 baseball reporter Mike Wilner. “Wow. Dude started again, then gave up. Now butchering US anthem.”
The Toronto Sun’s Steve Simmons followed on Twitter with “maybe the worst rendition of the Canadian anthem ever at Dunedin today. But give the crowd credit. They bailed the anthem singer out.”
The shaken singer, however, was so upset there were reports of leaving the field in tears.
