  41. A-Rod: What World Series?Did you hear that the Red Sox won the World Series last night? No? Was it because everybody was talking about how A-Rod went free agent, as was announced during the game? After Rodriguez’s shameless agent, Scott Boras, upstaged game four by releasing the news during the early innings, it was all anyone could yammer about. Sure, the Series had been a little boring, and yeah, A-Rod has no reason to love the Sox, but couldn’t they have at least thrown the Rockies a bone? A young team with a thrilling (if disappointing) moment in the spotlight, having their last moments in the sun robbed by a man who is just hoping to make more money next year. Kinda sucks, huh? Anyway, if you didn’t hear about the Red Sox last night on TV or radio, surely you saw the news in this morning’s paper. Oh, you didn’t? You must read the Daily News or the Post, where the Series news was relegated to tiny text ribbons on the front and back pages, dwarfed by coverage of the Yankees. Well, just FYI: The Red Sox won the World Series. Not that you wanted to know. You’re a New Yorker, after all. A-Rod Putting Himself Above the Game [ESPN]
  42. Is Kate Beckinsale Too Hot to Play Judy Miller?MEDIA • Matt Drudge cracked open The New Republic’s Iraq fabulist controversy once again. Did the mag’s Baghdad diarist really make up details about mass graves and troops ridiculing a disfigured female soldier? Franklin Foer complains that Drudge’s docs could only have come from the Army. [Slate, NYO] • Chris Jones, the managing editor of Portfolio.com, announced his departure from the mag after giving notice over a month ago. High-level rumors also indicate Joanne Lipman may soon be relieved from command — but only for the Website. [WWD] • The Judith Miller movie is now filming in Memphis, and let’s just say that Kate Beckinsale is way too hot to be a reporter. On the other hand, the Valerie Plame CIA character, played by Vera Farmiga, looks just about right. [WP]
  43. Rooting for the Red Sox: Rudy’s Ultimate BetrayalRemember when Hillary Clinton made headlines by saying she’d “have to alternate sides” if the Cubs (her real home team) and the Yankees (her adopted one) faced off in the World Series? “SHE’S FLIP-FLOPPING!” cried conservative pundits, cackling wickedly. Except, as Clinton herself pointed out, such a matchup was completely unlikely and didn’t actually pan out in reality. But Rudy Giuliani today flip-flopped on team loyalty for absolutely no reason. He told a crowd in Boston this afternoon that he is “rooting for the Red Sox” in the World Series. His wafer-thin logic is that he always roots for the American League. Um, WHAT? Why don’t you eat our American League assholes, Rudy? No real Yankee fan would ever root for their bitter rival, not even in the most extreme circumstances. This makes us question everything about Rudy and what he says he stands for. Sure, people may change their position about abortion and gun control all the time. But on team loyalty? That just goes too far. Yankee Fan Giuliani Backing Red Sox [NYT]
  44. Plunking Toward Postseason Baseball in New York has now descended into the energetic predictability of mid-career Oasis. (Which ain’t all that bad. The Gallagher brothers nearly sold out Madison Square Garden last time around and, after a few vodka cranberries and an Excedrin Migraine with extra caffeine, they sounded damn good.) There’s possibility of another Yankees-Sox matchup to which noted philosopher king Derrick Coleman would say, “Whoopty damn do.” Then there’s the lure of another Subway Series. Seriously, who is really rooting for twelve days of Mike and the Mad Dog frothing over Torre versus Randolph or reprising their asinine argument of whether Billy Wagner is entitled to use “Enter Sandman” as his entry song? I’d rather have my molars removed without anesthesia. Or watch Dane Cook shout inane baseball promos for Fox. Oh crap, that last thing really happened.
