Howard Swallows His Pride

Howard said he was also still a little torn over the night's events, as he'd really stepped outside his comfort zone by asking McCartney to autograph his daughter's ticket: "Forget my pride and all that bullshit. That's my little girl."

Howard said he'd sign anything thatPaul asked him to--especially if it were for one of his kids: "I'd sign the universe for him. Because I know what it's like to be a dad and come through for your kid."

Howard later admitted he was glad Paul turned him down, as his daughters sometimes believe--mistakenly--that their dad can get whatever he wants.
