Alex Rodriguez of the Seattle Mariners, who said he came to Game 4 to cheer on his friends, was only one of the famous faces seen during the Subway Series. Sex andthe City TV star Kim Cattrall was sitting in the cheap seats much to the delight of the teenage son of Steve Wulf, ESPN The Magazine executive editor. The Yankees, who brought their own furnishings to Shea for comfort, didn't exactly receive the star treatment they might have expected when their locker room accidentally flooded, forcing an evacuation after the game.

"Thanks to the Mets for giving the Yankees a great series. Each game was close and not decided till the last out."
"As I life-long Met fan this hurts. I am proud of my team, because they fought hard. The Yankees' World Series experience was the difference. They are the mentally strongest team I have ever seen. My Mets will be back next year, and I hope like the Braves this year the Yankees will be gone when we get to the World Series. Joe Torre and his team deserved this championship. Wait until next year."
