Boston or New York?

Do we root for New York with all the predictability of the sun rising in the morning? Or, do we root for Boston with all the predictability of the sun setting each evening and therefore root for John Kerry's team?

If Boston makes it into the series John Flip Kerry will be throwin' first pitches, (like a girlie-man). He'll get lots of air time sitting in nearby box seats, (having the game explained to him by the owner of the seats and which team are the Red Sox). He'll be interviewed about his love for the game and his hometown team, (explaining in great detail how he'd been present for each of the four World Series championships the Red Sox had won since his first term in office). He'll be asked about his most memorable Red Sox moment, (which was "Kirk Buchner's homerun off Rollie Carlton in the bottom of the 9th to win the series in 1968. I was in Vietnam, (I served heroically, you know?) listening to the game on Armed Forces Radio Network while going up river into Cambodia. It was tough. That memory is seared, seared in my mind").

The prospect of Boston in the World Series and the elite, pompous John Kerry working his ass off to assure the nation he's a regular guy with proper testosterone orientation is worth my cheer.

Go Boston! -WB
