‘USA! USA!’ chants break out at Citi Field
After news spread that the second Boston Marathon bombing suspect had been captured, chants of “USA! USA!” broke out at Citi Field in New York where the Mets were facing the Washington Nationals. Amanda Rykoff was at the stadium and says the news that the suspect had been obtained was flashed on the scoreboard, leading to the chants.
Rykoff captured some of the chants on Vine.
You may recall there was a very similar scene two years ago at the Phillies-Mets game in Philadelphia after people in the stadium learned that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
It’s hard to beat American pride.
