From the AP’s Jay Lindsay :
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.
“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.”
The former New York mayor said his declaration of temporary Red Sox loyalty 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.”
