Turns out the Yankees are in town that weekend, and the DNC is in negotiations to buy blocs of tickets for delegates.
Predictably, Red Sox Nation aren’t all that thrilled.
Come to think of it, it offers a nice metaphor. The Yankees, who’ve dominated the Red Sox in the past several offseasons, are the presumptive favorite. But the Red Sox, who’ve just signed Curt Schilling, may actually win it all next year.

Let the flame war begin. It’s bad enough to focus on politics, but now to throw the Red Sox/Yankees war on top of it? This could be fun.
