So, my son and I were at the Yankees game last night.
Early in the game, between innings, they were showing random people in the stands, up on the big screen. And, one of them was a guy with his wife.
The dude was wearing a yellow shirt, if I recall correctly, and had on a pair of granny glasses.
OK, what’s the big deal?
He was sleeping. His wife was awake but he was sitting there, early in a Yankees-Red Sox game, in what appeared to be great seats because of the high backs and padding, with his chin slightly tucked in and his eyes shut.
The split-second I saw the image, I said to my son “Oh, my, that guy is asleep!”
Then, right away, the crowd started to cheer and I quickly realized who the man was…it was Joe Torre.
Once the crowd got loud, he opened his eyes and sort of smiled.
I guess some habits are hard to give up…sleeping during the game….really?
