I (Heart) New York 

Proving once again that the best political coverage in the NYT comes from the business and sports writers, not those soiled doves in the political and foreign-affairs desks:
(via NYT Sports Department:

Maybe the Yankees, so dominant since their last series with the Red Sox, were cowering again. Maybe they would embarrass their principal owner, George Steinbrenner, on a night when he entertained Vice President Dick Cheney, Gov. George E. Pataki and the former mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in his private box behind home plate.

Maybe not. By the fourth inning, the fans were cheering an eventual 11-3 Yankees victory. In the seventh inning, during Ronan Tynan's "God Bless America," they booed the sight of Cheney on the right-field video screen.

My hardest decisions during baseball season comes during (boo, hiss) "interleague play" when the Yankees are playing the Mets. Who do I want to lose more? is the challenge.

Not this year. I declare as a die-hard Yankee fan until the day they meet the Cubs in the World Series.
