Bathroom Breaks Now OK at Yankees Games During 'God Bless America'

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.

Campeau-Laurion, a Red Sox fan, will also get $10,001 in a separate deal reached with the city because he got the boot from two uniformed cops — one of whom allegedly told him, "Get out of my country."

The city also agreed to pay $12,000 for legal fees racked up by the NYCLU, which built its case on a charge of "political and religious discrimination."
