The former New York City mayor acknowledged at a Boston news conference Tuesday he is rooting for the rival Red Sox to win the World Series.
“I’m not saying that just because I’m here in Massachusetts," the Republican presidential candidate said to applause and laughs. “If I’m 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.”
He said that, as an American League fan, he always backs the team from the Yankees’ league.
On Wednesday morning, the New York media took Giuliani to task for his team turnabout. In front page placements, the New York Post called the former mayor a "Red Coat," and the New York Daily News proclaimed him a "traitor."
Welcome aboard, Captain... that other ship was sinking anyway.
