OK, take your usual cynicism for online petitions and give it a rest for a day. Here’s something we can all get behind, even if you’re like me and not even an American.
A petition has begun on the White House site to change the American national anthem to Guile’s Theme. Unlike most internet petitions, which can and should be ignored, the cool thing about these ones is that if they hit 100,000 signatures, someone has to at least look at it before it goes in the bin.
Which it will, but until then, let us dream of a day ball games are begun not with a homage to the War of 1812, but to a family man with impossible hair.
It’s a worthy sentiment. Though really, if change is on the table, can’t we get it changed to this instead?
