    I hope that I have as much energy and look as good as he does when I reach my seventies. Actually, now that I think about it, I don’t have that much energy or look that good now.

    Lots of ‘Silly Love Songs’ in the city of Psychedelia…..not much of a match if you ask me.

    And there will be one last football game. A charity flag-football game between a team lead by Joe Montana and the other by Dan Marino.

    That fits – the Beatles played the first concert at Shea Stadium. He played the first concert at Citi Field.

    His latest album “NEW” is actually pretty cool.

    I love Paul, but come on….It’s Candlestick….you’re telling me no American acts wanted to say farewell to the old lady?

    Have there been a lot of cricket matches in the stadium that I missed?

    I wish he would have stayed in the 50’s and 60’s.
    Time for him to retire…

    I love Macca, but isn’t there a more fitting band to close out the stick? maybe one from the bay area?

    I guess Ringo wasn’t available.

    Huey Lewis and the News can open for him.

    GREAT IDEA! Keep playing Sir Paul! I remember that Sunday evening when we tuned in as a nation in our living rooms, watching our black and white televisions and heard Ed Sullivan say simply “The Beatles” and how the cameras panned IMMEDIATELY to the hordes of SCREAMING girls. I recall them doing “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand” I believe. Now, two of those young men are gone, Paul is SEVENTY-TWO, and I am just ten years younger…Amazing the way the years fly right on by. GO FOR IT PAUL!!

    time to retire? the man is a living legend. and obviously people still love his music.

    All you Paul lovers will see him barely able to sing some day….I experienced that with one of my Fav’s, it was heart breaking….and Paul will charge $300 a ticket to boot.
