I went downtown to draw the Yankees Victory parade up Broadway – the “canyon of heroes” on Friday morning. It was great fun to see the players go by on the floats: Matsui was reserved and cool, Mariano Rivera was suave, Damon played the crowd and Jeter was, of course, the heart-throb. But the best part of the Yankees parade was THE CROWD: they don’t call them the Bronx Bombers for nothin’! The fans were raucous and rowdy and having a good time! This drawing was made before the parade even started, we’d all been standing out there for about three hours already and they were getting restless. A cab driver somehow was able to drive down Broadway right before the start time, only to be jeered at and pelted with newspapers, confetti, and rolls of toilet paper. Â A little boy managed to chuck a roll of t.p. all the way across Broadway and the fans cheered him so much that Dad lifted him up to receive the raucous adulation!! Good job! A most satisfying morning, for sure. See more drawings from the day here.
