Paul McCartney Really, Really, Really Wants A Free T-Shirt

Sir Paul McCartney may be one of the richest men on the planet, but when it comes to winning free t-shirts, the Beatles singer is all about the competition.

McCartney was seen at the Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets game in Brooklyn on Monday (Dec. 16) and he got all riled up when he was given the chance to catch a souvenir during the halftime break.

He awaited in anticipation as the shirt went flying toward him, but was crushed when it landed in the hands of a fellow attendee. "That was mine!" a discouraged McCartney tells the person who caught the treasured Brooklyn Nets t-shirt.

He really wanted that shirt ... no, like he really wanted it.
