New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said it's "constitutionally impossible" for him to root for the Yankees, who are even with the Astros at two games apiece in the ALCS.
De Blasio, who is a die-hard Red Sox fan, explained his reasoning to the the NY Daily News.
"The truth is called for in editorial board meetings," de Blasio said. "I am a crazed, rabid baseball fan and Red Sox fan. It is constitutionally impossible to quote unquote root for the New York Yankees."
De Blasio, who hasn't been to a game at Yankee Stadium since taking office in 2014 but has attended numerous Mets games (and supported them during the 2015 World Series), added that he won't attend any World Series games if the Yankees advance since it would be too "weird."
If the Yankees advance to and win the World Series, though, De Blasio said he would "bow before them" during the parade.
