BOSTON --In an act of baseball blasphemy, Yankee die-hard Rudy Giuliani said Tuesday he's pulling for the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series over the Colorado Rockies.
I'm rooting for the Red Sox," the Republican presidential contender said in response to a question, sparking applause at the Boston restaurant where he was picking up a local endorsement.
"I'm an American League fan, and I go with the American League team, maybe with the exception of the Mets," he said. "Maybe that would be the one time I wouldn't because I'm loyal to New York."...read on
This is baseball sacrilege! Maybe all these debates with Mitt Romney has rubbed off. I wonder how Randy Levine, (the embittered president of the Yankees who formerly worked for Rudy and has been receiving a lot of criticism for forcing Joe Torre out as manager) will explain this to Steinbrenner? They have practically built a shrine to Giuliani in the Bronx whenever he shows up to a game and now he's rooting for the Red Sox to win it all.
Steinbrenner treats him like royalty in the Bronx and Rudy knows how competitive the two teams are, so this is shocking. I mean, no true Yankee fan would ever root for Boston and visa versa. It's been called the best rivalry in sports for a reason. I have a ton of Red Sox friends and we always have a good time when the teams play, (It is just a game) but I tell you this is one flop I thought he'd never take and I hope the stadium faithful let him have it when he shows up next season....
