Apparently they had Cheryl Crowe do Stars and Stripes, but only canned instrumental version of O Canada piped in over the speakers.

Tantrum

We give them football, hockey, Jackie Robinson and tri-colored baseball caps and this is how they repay us?

MLB seems to love to rip on Canada... remember the upside-down flag incident?

MLB sucks Donkey. I don't know how that league still exists. Huge player salaries and lots of empty seats.

In their defense (marines hanging it upside down) that's usually how you find red maple leafs -- hanging downward.

Boooooo! Thumbs Down

I suppose an upside down US flag would be acceptable then since stripes can point in pretty much any direction.

C'mon... maybe the heads of Maple Leaf fans as they hang their heads in shame (heh heh) but they should have known better...

At least baseball get some coverage for a few days over this in Canada. With the Jays season rapidly circling the toilet bowl, there isn't much to get excited about.

I really lost interest in baseball after it became obvious that the Jays were not going to compete with Sox and Yanks. So roughly, a decade and a half ago.
