According to the Post, America’s Former Mayor was bumped from his favorite seats near the dugout in Yankee Stadium on the first night of the World Series to get him, and wife Judi, away from Michelle Obama. A source blames “the White House.”
To add insult to injury, Mrs. Obama ended up not using the seats because of the rain.
The Post, which says that Giuliani has a history of not having much of a sense of humor about this kind of thing, noted that the Yankees won when he was back in his favorite seat for the next game. His favorite seat is apparently the one where the cameras can catch him talking to players.
While this act was not as “spit in the wind” as when the Boston Red Sox front office sold the traditional seats on Duffy’s Cliff held for the Royal Rooters before Game 7 of the 1912 World Series to the general public, the Yankees are stupid to mess with anything that could bring back luck to them…especially during the World Series.
Shoot, let Michelle Obama sit next to Kate Hudson next time…she’ll get more camera coverage there, anyway.
