The Boston Red Sox are suddenly players in the 2016 presidential race, but at least two of them aren’t exactly on the same team.
Start with Kyle Clauss’s Boston Magazine piece yesterday.
Billionaire John Henry Wants Billionaire Mike Bloomberg to Run for President
The two-party system is broken, so why not an oligarchy?
Red Sox principal owner John Henry celebrated Presidents Day by urging former three-term New York mayor Michael Bloomberg to make a run for the White House. Keeping in line with the first law of online media—”Tweets with pictures get more attention than those without”—the Boston Globe attached a photo of some avant garde carpeting, for good measure.
Here’s what Henry posted on his Twitter feed:
Yeah – we have no idea what the graphic means either.
But that’s not the end of Billionaires Row for the Olde Towne Team. Here’s Nick Cafardo’s campaign coverage in today’s Boston Globe:
Buchholz has a ringing endorsement for Trump
Add matchmaker to Donald Trump’s list of successful endeavors.
“It was 2008 in Anaheim,” Buchholz recalled. “It was Sean Casey, myself, probably like eight or nine guys, and we went to a UFC fight after one game and then we went to the after party.
“It was ‘Affliction: Banned’ fighting, and [Trump] owned the whole circuit. My wife knew him prior, from ‘Deal or No Deal’ when he came on the show as a celebrity banker.
“She was helping him host this event in Anaheim. So when we all walked in, he was there, and he saw us and he introduced Lindsey to me.”
Isn’t that sweet?
Now if we can just get Big Papi to endorse Bernie Sanders, we’ll have a real ballgame.
