2001-Oct-11: A Yankees Fan

If you were watching the second game of the major league baseball best-of-five Division Series between the New York Yankees and the Oakland A's this evening you might have noticed a highly visible
Yankee fan, Sir Paul McCartney, watching the match from his front row box seat behind home plate.  In fact, just before the top of the fourth inning Sir Paul was introduced to the crowd. The scoreboard camera zoomed in on his smiling face while Band on the Run was played over the public address system.  The 56,684 fans in the ball park cheered while Sir Paul waved to the crowd and and rocked his head to the beat of the familiar tune.  After the seventh-inning stretch, Sir Paul was seen wearing a blue New York City Fire Department cap on his head (and some reports say he also appeared to be enjoying a nice cold bottle of Budweiser beer).  Sir Paul left the game clutching an autographed baseball from the Yankee dugout. (Oh, the Yankees lost the game, btw.)
