Now, don't get me wrong.
I'm all for hyperbolic displays of patriotism.
But why is the eagle-as-Patton flag displayed behind Mariano Rivera? I mean, this is an image normally seen as perhaps a translucent decor on the back window of a redneck's pickup truck. Why is it on the Yankees' parade float? Don't get me wrong - not complaining...just saying it's a bit out of context.
