You might think that after living a life as packed with fame, fortune and excitement as Paul McCartney it would be hard to take pleasure in life‘s smaller victories. You would be wrong though, as the rock legend is still just as excited as everyone else to catch a free T-shirt.

McCartney attended the Nets game against the Timberwolves on Sunday afternoon, and while he did not get to see the home team win, he did get some free swag.

Of course the former Wings frontman could afford his own T-shirt, but getting one from the Brooklyn pep squad is so much sweeter, especially when McCartney has a history with being denied the gratis gear.

Let‘s hope McCartney is simply having a wonderful Christmastime with his new shirt.
