..Hey All..avid sports fan here..what does anyone think of the fan who got booted out of Yankee Stadium,when he went to the bathroom during the playing of "God Bless America"..My take..it already costs a fortune to attend a Yankees game..to say ticket prices are extravagant is a gross understatement!..in the dwindling economy we are currently experiencing,I think it really sucks that Yankee Sy=tadiun officials feel justified in giving this average Joe the boot..if he were to have thrown something onto the field,or at a player..by all means throw him out..Hell arrest the S.O.B.!..Very poor publicity for anew Stadium to have..Shame on you short-sighted Yankee officials!..Get a Life!..

Let me get this straight - the guy left the seats to go to the bathroom and he was thrown out because he moved during God Bless America?

If this was yesterday I'm sure all the Yankee fans, players and officials were in a really rotten mood losing to the Indians 22-4.  No wonder.

Wow, how did I miss this? I agree with Dave and Joy: that was totally unfair and uncalled for. Not that I can afford to go to a game anymore but when ya gotta go, ya gotta go! And I would rather go during God Bless America than during the game and miss a homer..not that they're getting many these days. :-(
