Rudy Will NEVER Be Cheered In Yankee Stadium

This is an unpardonable sin:

“I’m rooting for the Red Sox,” the Republican presidential contender told a Boston audience on Tuesday, just a few T stops from Fenway Park.

“I’m an American League fan, and I go with the American League team, maybe with the exception of the Mets. Maybe that would be the one time I wouldn’t because I’m loyal to New York.”

(…)

“Somehow it makes me feel better if the team that was ahead of the Yankees wins the World Series,” he told a group of mostly local reporters in explaining his sudden backing of the Red Sox, “because then I feel like, well, we’re not that bad.”

Later, at a town hall meeting in Lebanon, N.H., Giuliani yukked it up with a couple of audience members who were wearing Sox caps. “If I keep looking at that hat, I may start crying,” he said to chuckles, before adding, “Good luck to the Red Sox!”(…)

The GOP front-runner insisted his sudden conversion to Red Sox fandom was “not just because I’m here in Massachusetts.”

“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.

I’m sure Yankee fans will be very comforted by Rudy’s consistency.
