Yes, I Would Have Predicted a Tampa Bay-Philadelphia World Series in April

The New York Times has been following the baseball saga this election cycle, too. And while Rupert Murdoch is probably cursing the rating gods for sending down Rays-Phillies, both Obama and McCain are giddy with excitement that both teams happen to come from swing states! (Although, to be fair, Florida is a little more swinging than Pennsylvania.) Also, I am pleased to report that the Red State-Blue State divide in baseball has finally been breached, with the N.L. team representing Philadelphia and the A.L. team coming from Tampa-St. Petersburg. For his part, Obama has come out in support of Philly, despite the fact that he has received the endorsements of Rays players DH Jonny Gomes, P David Price, LF Carl Crawford, P Edwin Jackson and DH Cliff Floyd. Take that, Colin Powell! Can you turn a 5-4-3 double play? No, cause you're just one person!... Although I guess that neither can the Rays, since none of them are infielders. Never mind.

Let's see the Republicans try to steal Florida now!
