Flag waving

I know I said I would write something this evening other than the comic con or New York, but I finally managed to load up the rest of my New York photos this evening. And the one below is my favourite of the bunch. It was obviously taken in Yankee Stadium. During the 7th inning stretch they sing two songs. One is "Take me out to the ball game" and the other is "America the Beautiful." They only sing the last song during a ball game in Yankee Stadium. I recall there was some racket about it a few years ago when they started doing it after 9/11.

Anyway, they started singing the song and the guy in front of me takes out an American flag and begins to wave it during the song. Now really, how can you not take a photo of that?

This is one of the best stadium photos I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Perfectly composed, and tells the story of the game. Thanks for sharing it.

It was a great seat. Funny, I sat in the wrong area for the first inning. Then the guy shows up looking for his seat and the people next to me are going, "no, you need to go! You've got much better seats!"

I'm just glad I didn't have a fly ball hit towards me. The poor bastard who did and who dropped the ball was mercilessly razed for two innings.
