BooGate Begins!

Did Yankees fans really “roundly boo” when Rudy Giuliani’s face appeared on the screen at the Yankees game Monday night, as Keith Olbermann and the Huffington Post reported yesterday? Or were they actually shouting “Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!” which “resembles a ‘boo,’ but [is] not quite the same,” as one reader e-mailed Daily Intel today. She tells us she was at the game and was “positive that they were chanting Rudy.” Oddly, the Olbermann broadcast that reported the “brief but lusty” booing didn’t show a clip of it, and we haven’t been able to find any footage of said boo-age. If anyone has video of the incident, send it to us at intel@nymag.com, because now we’re wondering: Was the crowd really jeering at Rudy, or was that just the sweet sound of liberal bias?
