The hit squad goons with the General's marketing team may have thought they'd heard the last of fan-fave crooner Bob Seger, but now that it's been confirmed the fan-fave crooner'll be getting a run at the national anthem at the lynchpin of Chevy's $400 million marketing blitz for the Silverado, we've only got two questions. If Bob Seger forgets what he's doing and where he is tomorrow night, do you think he'll start belting out "Like A Rock?" More importantly, because the World Series is sponsored by Chevrolet, will the PR folks in the booth force Major League Baseball and Fox to dub it over with "Our Country?"

DISCUSSION

Fear not sports fans — I'll be there to document the reality from the truthiness. So if any Chevy shenanigans occur, you'll get the other half of the story. Or at least my interpretation of it — which will at least be an attempt at humor.
