The San Diego Padres have been accused of homophobia after the recorded voice of a woman singing the national anthem was played when it should have been sung by the city’s Gay Men’s Chorus.
A hundred volunteer singers from The San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus had stepped onto the field to sing the national anthem ahead of Saturday evening’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park.
But they were forced to stand on the field for the duration of the anthem while, instead of their voices, the large crowd heard the woman singing.
The chorus slammed the baseball team after the incident, claiming that they were escorted off the field to homophobic taunts, such as ‘You sing like a girl’.

Did they win? That is all that matters.
Everyone's homophobic except those who aren't.

also when they see the guys in the lab coats with the butterfly nets they become dodgers

also there is the whole padres/priest boy thing
