Yankee fans are now at liberty to go to the bathroom during the playing of "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch, thanks to a settlement reached yesterday in Manhattan federal court. Signing off on the deal were the Yankees, the New York Civil Liberties Union and Queens resident Bradford Campeau-Laurion, who was thrown out of Yankee Stadium last year after trying to hit the head midtune.
This is certainly good news for those of you partake in a lot of fifth and sixth inning beverages white with foam.
Despite the settlement, however, going to the john during a late-inning rally is still grounds for immediate removal. And a good beating. Which is exactly what the Framers intended.
