You're Fired! No Wait...

An announcer fired by a minor league team for making a joke about Gov. James McGreevey's sexual orientation was rehired Thursday at the governor's urging.

Greg Maiuro lost his job with the Atlantic City Surf after dedicating the 1970s song "YMCA" to McGreevey during a game Aug. 17. The Village People hit is widely considered a gay anthem.

McGreevey -- who announced earlier this month that he is gay, had an affair with a man and plans to resign Nov. 15 -- urged the team to accept an apology and reinstate Maiuro "so we can move beyond this incident and get back to enjoying America's favorite pastime."
