Title: Ebbets Field rodeo

Policeman on horseback dispersing crowd outside Ebbets Field; various billboards in background. Caption: "Ebbets Field Rodeo: There we were, just a bunch of ordinary guys trying to see a ball game -- and what happens? The cops say no more seats or standing room. 'But they said there were going to be seats,' we protest. 'All sold,' say the cops. We get mad. The cops get mad. Then come the horses. So we go home and watch the darn game on TV."
