Yeah, I have one more story. I was on a BA flight from JFK-LHR. This was on the day after the World Series in 1996 when the Yankees won. ATC had just cleared us up to FL390. The ATC left his microphone on and was pretty much talking smack about the Yankees. The pilot, who was British and didn't know anything about baseball asked about the World Series. For about 45 minutes this guy kept us on frequency and explained the entire game of baseball to the pilot. It was great stuff!
