The Skipper Takes in a Show by the Boss


Joe Torre at Bruce SpringsteenLast night the Philadelphia Spectrum held one of its final concerts before it is due to be destroyed with Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band holding court. Among the thousands of attendees was one Joseph Paul Torre, manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, in town to battle the defending champs, the Philadelphia Phillies.

Torre’s appearance did not go unnoticed, whether it was the many phones taking photos of him (left) or when the crowd started chanting “BEAT LA.” Even Bruce got in on the action, during “Glory Days” at the line where Bruce says “I had a friend, was a big baseball player,” Bruce pointed to the Dodgers manager.

I think it’s safe to say that Torre much prefers THIS Boss as opposed to his previous employer George Steinbrenner, who, it should be noted, is a terrible Rock and Roll musician.
