Rudy Giuliani Roots for the Red Sox!

I'm sorry, but this is baseball sacrilege!

    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."

I wonder how Randy Levine 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.

I mean, no true Yankee fan would ever root for Boston and visa versa. I have a ton of Red Sox friends and we always have a good time when the teams play, 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...

Can a true Yankee fan ever root for the Red Sox to win the World Series?
