New York City mayor takes heat after tweeting about Red Sox fandom

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio may have just committed cardinal sin No. 1 in the eyes of his constituents.

The Democratic leader attended the Boston Red Sox spring training game on Saturday with his wife Chirlane McCray and tweeted some pictures of the visit, calling the defending World Series champions one of his “great loves.”

Naturally, New Yorkers weren’t thrilled about their mayor riding for the enemy, and de Blasio took some major heat on Twitter. Take a look:

The 57-year-old de Blasio, who has served as New York City mayor since 2014, was born in Manhattan and later attended university there as well. He did also live in Cambridge, Mass. as a kid though, which may explain the Sox fandom.

Things didn’t go so well for de Blasio the last time he dabbled into baseball either, so maybe he would be better off finding another sport at this point.
