did frank mccourt visit the wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man?

have a looksie at this 2009 upper deck piece of history stadium scenes insert featuring russell martin and beautiful chavez ravine. 
this photo may have captured an opening day festivity on the field, which obviously included some red white and blue wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tubes.  i wonder if frank mccourt took advantage of a shipping error to stock up on those wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tubes.  well, as i mentioned in a recent post, upper deck enjoyed recycling photos almost as much as topps did back in the 1960's.  here's the back of a 2004 upper deck legends timeless teams jerry reuss card with the same photo, although differently cropped.
mccourt, of course, bought the team in 2004, so maybe it was rupert murdoch who cut a deal with al harrington, even though it seemed more likely that mccourt, a new englander, would have been out on route 2 in weekapaug.  giggity.
