Strange Boxfellows

A link from Deadspin to a story about GWB throwing out the first pitch of the 2001 World Series reveals that no matter how nasty the GOP primaries get, at one time, one of the candidates thought that his opponent was trustworthy enough to pass money down the aisle to a vendor and deliver a hot dog back in exchange:

New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, an ardent Yankees fan, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., sat in a box next to the dugout.

It was probably great until the 5th inning when Giuliani tried to convince McCain to trade up to better seats and McCain was all "no, that usher looks too tough. We'd better stay here."
