Boston mayor Tom Menino made another sports-related goof today when he implored the Red Sox to win the “World Series Cup” on Tuesday.
Well-played Mr. Mayor, well-played. At least his heart was in the right place and he came oh-so-close to getting the name of a competition that began in 1903 correct. (That first World Series winner? The Boston Americans.)
Perhaps he was hanging out with John Kerry discussing the immortal Boston player, “Manny Ortiz.”
