Sox and Yankee Fans Agree About Cheney?

At yesterday’s game in Yankee Stadium, history was made. A subject on which Red Sox fans and Yankees fans alike could agree upon was found! Cheney was greeted with boos at Yankee Stadium. (NYT)

During the singing of “God Bless America” in the seventh inning, an image of Cheney was shown on the scoreboard. t was greeted with booing, so the Yankees quickly removed the image.

The Veep was in attendance, but I don’t think footage of the game will be used at any campaign events. Maine is a swing state, however. Anyone have pics of Cheney in a Yankees cap? New Yorkers will clearly be excited to host the Republican National Convention in August. Has a veep ever been booed at during a game before? It couldn’t happen to a nicer liar guy.

[UPDATED: I ought to have known that Steve would already be on top of this story. And he’s got the pics I mention as well. He may be a Yankee fan, but the fans at the game didn’t seem to want to claim him for their own.]

They probably booed him because of his dirty, dirty mouth. New Yorkers don't go for that sort of thing. ;-)

Well, that and the way his administration keep trying to use the attack on NY to fund their campaign.

Can't give the Yankee fans all the credit. Lots of RSN citizens there last night.
