At a press conference this morning, Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent some time discussing the Giants’ Super Bowl victory last Sunday. Mayor Bloomberg started things off by saying he tried to invite his predecessor, Rudy Giuliani, to the victory parade, but “Rudy was traveling.”
“I don’t know that he was ever a big football fan. Rudy is a very big baseball–a very big Yankees, not baseball fan,” Mayor Bloomberg said.
He went on to reveal he used to feel self conscious because Mayor Giuliani reigned during the World Series between the Yankees and Mets in 2000.
“Deep down inside, I’ve always felt a little bit inferior because he delivered a Subway Series and I have not, but I have delivered, and I have a lot to do with this, two Super Bowl champions.”
Mayor Bloomberg went on to explain why he was instrumental in the Giants’ championship.
