Sounds like a baseball flip-flop. Rudy Giuliani, a lifelong New York Yankees fan, said Tuesday he's pulling for their most hated rivals, the Boston Red Sox, to win the World Series over the Colorado Rockies.This is obviously a shot across the bow to the eerily robotic Massachusetts man Mitt Romney. Guiliani, Red Sox fan? Mitt better start hedging his bets soon. Might I suggest a Rockies cap at the next stump speech? The Romney campaign likes everyone!
"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."
"In Colorado, in the next week or two, you will see, I will have the courage to tell the people of Colorado the same thing, that I am rooting for the Red Sox in the World Series," he said.
And just so you know, John Kerry wants to make it clear he voted for the Red Sox before he voted against the Rockies, after he voted against removing the "Devil" from Devil Rays ... or something like that.
