Take me out to the Presidential fundraiser
Ever wonder if the owners of your favorite baseball team has given money to a Presidential candidate? This guy did, and he's got the results for you. I'm strangely gratified by the fact that the Mets' ownership gave four grand to Dubya. Since they've started sucking again, I haven't really felt the need to hate them like I did as a Yankee-loving kid, but now they've given me an excuse. Thanks, guys!
(BTW, the two Gs that the Yankees gave to Bob Graham has a simple explanation - George Steinbrenner's home address is Tampa, Florida.)

Looking for a real reason to hate the Mets? Try this:
The Yankees are playing the Angels at Yankee Stadium in May, and have one discount or another on tickets for each game in the series, including a $5 night for the upper deck on Wednesday.
The Mets are playing the Tigers in June, and are making fans pay extra for the privilege.
Leslie Alexander gave John Kerry $500
The Mets have always been pond scum. This just seals the deal.
Maybe Steinbrenner can buy the Devil Rays and sell the Yankees to a tight-fisted group who won't spend the money needed to field a decent team?
A guy can hope.
