In this week's issue of Sports Illustrated, Dan Patrick's column includes a quote from comedian Chris Rock on Lady Gaga's infamous bird-flipping appearance at Citi Field a while back:

"Well, she's Lady Gaga," Rock said. "She's not 'Lady Behave Yourself.' Her name is Lady Gaga. Do you want great behavior from a person named Gaga? Is this what you were expecting?"

That's a pretty good point from Rock, who years ago I once saw eating pizza in a Park Slope, Brooklyn, pizzeria. That was before anyone ever heard of Lady Gaga.
