(MCP#86/4) - At Metro Stadium a new security system was installed which made Mr. Burke, the reigning head of security, obsolete. He was fired as of the end of the season, but the season wasn't over yet. Burke sent an anonymous bomb threat to secure his job, but instead Paladin was hired to take care of this problem. Burke decided to go one step further and hired four men who should pose as terrorists. He gave guns to three of them and a false bomb to the fourth guy. Burke came late to the control room that day and immediately got into Paladin's face. When Burke's men were seen on the screen, Paladin went after them. Meanwhile Burke departed the stadium, leaving his briefcase with the real bomb in the control room. Paladin caught Burke's men too fast and the bomb was disarmed by one of them. Paladin then went after Burke and stopped him from fleeing in his car. Afterwards Burke was arrested by the police.



Comments: Created by Eric Fein, J. Adam Walters and Sam DeLaRosa.

I'm not sure about the Metro Stadium being in New York, but some fan was carrying a Yankees flag around and the Yankees are a New Yorker team (and this is all I know about baseball)
