Sports Guy sides with Kareem over Magic:
With my 2008 vote still up for grabs, Obama seized the upper hand after I read this New York Times feature and learned his chief speechwriter is a Red Sox fan and a 2003 graduate from the College of the Holy Cross! Let's see, Obama sounds like Cyrus from "The Warriors"; he wears a nicotine patch; he plays hoops; he loves "The Wire"; and now, the guy writing speeches for him went to the Cross. That's pretty tough to top.
I feel like the endorsment Obama really needs, though, is from the Sports Gal (plus her football picks were much better this season IIRC). Meanwhile, I have the reverse reaction to revelations about Red Sox fans from Cross.
