I'll say! I just looked at the seating chart for the stadium and "great" is an understatement. Well done, Barry!

Yes, Kelley.  It was a blast!  For a moment this 61 year-old woman looked just like the 9 year-old girl I took to see A Hard Day's Night.

Which only goes to show that if you want some fun...

Today, we know.

That is so cool Barry! Boy, I'm happy he's still here. I haven't given up hope that I will get to see him (I never thought I'd see any Beatle) but even if I don't, it makes me smile to think that someone who saw him all those years ago could do it again.

I'm looking forward to watching all the videos. I'm charging up my conked out iPad right now! Thanks again, Barry.

Yeah, I told her that Paul wouldn't remember me from Shea Stadium because the closest I got was the parking lot after I snuck through a hole in the fence around the World's Fair.

Ob-la-di-bla-da, brother!


You know, Kelley, that in a 2004 BBC online poll, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da was voted the worst song ever written:  Beatles Classic Voted Worst Song (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3998301.stm)

Some poll!  Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da had the entire MetLife Stadium on their feet singing and carrying on...

I yelled to Paul to sing Mr. Moonlight, but I guess he didn't hear me.   :(

Nice to see he still gets stadiums cheering.
