Rudy made sure to tell the crowd he wasn’t just saying that because he was in Boston, it was how he really felt, but what does that say about he allegiance to the Yankees??? 

Former Massachusetts governor and Republican rival Mitt Romney questioned Rudy’s sincerity.

“I guess if Colorado wants Mayor Giuliani to root for the Rockies, they’re going to have to move their primary up,” …
