The Syracuse Crunch surely don't expect pop star Christina Aguilera to venture up to one of their American Hockey League games this season, but in an attempt to grab publicity, they've invited her.
Aguilera, as you already know, messed up the lyrics of The Star-Spangled Banner before the Super Bowl last night in Dallas, and the Crunch are giving her a big shot at redemption! Aww, how nice of them.
From the team:
The Syracuse Crunch announced today that they will invite pop star Christina Aguilera to sing the National Anthem at an upcoming home game for a chance to redeem herself after flubbing the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner at Super Bowl XLV yesterday at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
Aguilera, 30, is a five-time Grammy Award-winner and came to prominence in 1999 following her debut album, Christina Aguilera, whichspawned three number one singles including, Genie in a Bottle, What a Girl Wants, and Come on Over Baby (All I want is you).
And thus, the life of a PR man in the AHL: writing up press releases on former NHL goalies possibly joining the team right after discussing such hits as Come on Over Baby (All I want is you).
