Saturday night politics: The New York City CouncilBy
This isn’t your typical politics post. We’re taking sides here, but it the side of the Yanks. In a rather amusing look at the world of New York politics, Times reporter Fernanda Santos canvassed the New York City Council this week. She found that Mets fans out-poll Yankee fans by an 18-13 margin. Seven members of the Council took the politically prudent path of endorsing both, or more pessimistically, neither of the two teams, and Brooklyn’s Bill de Balsio professed his love of the Red Sox. What a traitor.
On another note, feel free to use this thread as the Open Thread. Oliver Perez and the Mets lost to the Phillies on a walk-off walk in the 10th inning, and the Bulls and Celtics are slugging it out in Game 7 of their epic playoff series.
