The Boss Taps The Boss?

Always eager to one-up cross-river rivals the New York Mets, Yankees principal owner George “The Boss” Steinbrenner is said to be after Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen or Paul McCartney to perform the final concerts at Yankee Stadium later this year, according to the New York Daily News.

Billy Joel recently perfomed Shea Stadium’s final concerts and no doubt Steinbrenner and the rest of the Yankees brass didn’t let all that publicity pass unnoticed.

Reps for Springsteen and Macca told the Daily News they weren’t aware of any discussions and Yankee flacks weren’t talking.
