And now for today’s sports news, we turn to Biff Brokaw, reporting for ESPN:
[Vice President Dick] Cheney, who visited both clubhouses after batting practice [at the Yankees game last night], watched part of the game from the box of Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and part from a first-row seat next to the Yankees dugout, where he sat between New York Gov. George Pataki and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Cheney was booed when he was shown on the right-field videoboard during the seventh-inning stretch.
Sources tell us that Cheney wanted to say “Go fuck yourself,” but the Secret Service said they couldn’t protect him if the Yankees fans attacked – and they were not sure they wanted to.
