Wanted: Real Yankees fans. Will accept, well, everyone

Gotta go see this over at Deadspin. AT&T is going to do a commercial saluting Mariano Rivera, and Deadspin got hold of the casting call. They’re looking for “ONLY REAL YANKEE fans,” you see, and the thing details exactly what that means.

Among them “street musicians – all sorts of music and peeps, but really cool- from rockers to string bands, to violins, to accordion players, to something really unique” and “Great old guy Chess player types. Think Seymour Cassell meets Scatman Crothers.” ¬†After the entire list is read basically every demographic is covered, at least in a quasi-entertainment stereotype way.

No word on whether “sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, and dweebies” need apply.
