While I understand your point in terms of the quality of his singing, I actually feel that this act is pure brilliance on the part of Lonnie. Everyone loves to hate that guy. The fans get all worked up booing him and all the people around me were laughing and enjoying themselves as they booed. If anything, they should bring him out more often and expand his role, working the fans into a viscious and spiteful frenzy. It gets people more involved. Two 65 year old men sitting near me, who rarely stood up to cheer during the game, were on their feet and booing ‘Jonathon T’ with big smiles on their faces.
The Gades should print up ‘I hate Jonathon T Henry’ (or whatever his name is) shirts and get him to play it up like a wrestling act, pretending that he thinks everyone loves him. He can refer to the south side as his fanclub, which would infuriate them.
I’m laughing just picturing it.
