The unidentified fan, who made a peacock-like crow as Simpson was being interviewed by Bob Costas was quickly whisked away by tournament officials.

Simpson did not allow the odd scene to spoil the greatest moment of his career. He laughed, then cracked:

Afterward, Simpson said he thought the craziness might be part of the script.

Not quite.

There was no immediate information on what happened to the squawker.
