Yankee Stadium: safe from sportswriters

bull.jpgI got to the park early today and as I was walking in, one of the security guards at the press gate stopped me because I had a can of Red Bull sticking out of my bag.

“No cans,” he said.

I showed him my credential and said I wasn’t sitting in the stands. Beyond that, I’ve walked in with a bottle of Diet Coke or a can of Red Bull every game for two years.

“No cans,” junior Jack Bauer said.

A second security guard came over and said it was OK for me to go in. Then a third guy came over and sided with the first guy.

At this point, it was going to be the third inning by the time I got in the game. So I picked up the can, drank it and tossed it in the trash.

“We cool now?” I asked.

Then the head security guy came over and said it was OK.

Next time I’ll bury the can a little deeper in my bag.
