How Super Tuesday is like the Subway Series

February 5, 2008

From a text message exchange between the New York Observer’s Azi Paybarah and Obama fundraiser Arthur Leopold:

arthurleopold (2:45:00 PM): The Obama/Clinton rivalry here in New York is very similar to that of the Yankees and Mets rivalry. The Yankees are your home-town favorites, but the Mets always have a solid team—a team that has made it and won the World Series. In the end, though, if a New York team makes the World Series, you’ll be cheering for that team, just as we’ll be supporting whichever Democrat gets the nomination; this year, I think the Mets will prevail.

azipaybarah (2:46:55 PM): don’t mets and yankee fans hate each other

arthurleopold (2:47:11 PM): we like each other more than we like the red sox

    oh this is so true! I think that mets and yankees fans agree that we would love to see the red socks stuck in last place.

    Very Classic!
