Now that Rudy Giuliani has dropped out of the Presidential race, you'd think he'd drop out of the limelight. And while he largely has, he's back. And the joke is on him.
Last July was a long time ago. For example, Rudy was the front-runner for the Republican nomination. And he also said the following:
"I'm a Yankee fan," Giuliani replied then. "I always believe it's a sign of my being straight with people, about not wanting to fool them, that I was one of the first mayors to be willing to say I was a Yankee fan."But come October, things had changed. He was starting to fall in the polls. He needed help.
"I will be rooting for the Red Sox because I am an American League fan," Giuliani told a group of reporters, most of them local. "In this case, you won the division and we lost."And so Topps is having fun with our now no-longer running flip-flopper. They've put him on a baseball card. Celebrating a World Series Championship with the Red Sox.
"We took that and thought it would make for a funny card, since the Red Sox won," said Clay Luraschi, baseball brand manager for The Topps Co. "We thought, let's put him in the championship dog pile."So there you have it. Giuliani was against the Red Sox before he was for them. Now he's likely against them. Sound like defenses of elections past? There will be one of these cards in every 70 packs, so happy hunting!
