BOSTON -- Rudy Giuliani, a big Yankee fan, said he will be backing the Boston Red Sox over the Colorado Rockies when the World Series begins tomorrow.
"I'm rooting for the Red Sox," Giuliani said while wearing a red tie during a press conference in Boston's financial district. "I am an American League fan."
The former New York mayor said he wasn't pandering to the local crowd either.
"I am not just saying that because I am in Massachusetts. If I am in Colorado in the next week or two you will see that I have the courage to tell the people of Colorado the same thing," he said.
Giuliani was in Boston for a fund-raiser and to announce the endorsement of former Massachusetts Treasurer Joe Malone. He is scheduled to be in New Hampshire later in the day with events in Concord and Lebanon.
