Aaron Lewis, also known as Mr. “Patriot” on his Twitter biography, has made a lifelong slip-up. This mistake was screwing up the Star-Spangled Banner before game 5 of the World Series in San Francisco Sunday.
In an attempt to regain pride, he issued a public apology on Facebook to ask for the nation’s forgiveness:
“All I can say is I’m sorry and ask for the Nation’s forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.”
Here is his rendition in all its glory:
