    ESPN reports that minor-league baseball team the Brooklyn Cyclones have extended an invitation to Christina Aguilera, who bungled her rendition of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this weekend by leaving out an entire section and twisting the melody in such a way that parts of the song felt unrecognizable, to sing "The Star Spangled Banner" at one of their home games this Summer. The Class A farm team for the New York Mets compared her situation to that of a player in a slump. "When a player makes a mistake, they usually don't get a shot at redemption," said Cyclones general manager Steve Cohen in a statement. "But with a singer, that's a different story."

    Should Aguilera accept this invitation, which is genuine and generous?
