Even for the uninitiated, FC Barcelona players will be easy to spot tonight when they face Manchester United at Lincoln Financial Field. They'll be the ones wearing the classic striped jerseys, logo-free. That lack of advertising is a point of pride for the Spanish club's 105,000 dues-paying members.

"They have no idea about Bruce," said Cerrato, puffing on a celebratory cigarette outside the First Union Center yesterday after she survived a two-hour wait for tickets to Springsteen's Aug. 8 and 9 shows at Lincoln Financial Field. "Everybody's talking Bruce," Rabin said, "and they're just standing there, totally clueless.

The requests are always discreet, as they should be, but they are consistent. The deceased was a lifelong Manchester United fan. He wore red every Saturday for as long as could be remembered and lived and died with the fortunes of his club. Now that he has done the latter, quite literally this time, his family knows that his soul could have no greater joy than if the ashes of his mortal remains were spread upon the hallowed pitch of Old Trafford. Although the team doesn't publicize the practice, lest it find stacks of overnight mortuary packages sent from the far-flung reaches of the burgeoning Manchester United universe, the requests are always honored.
