They're not bitter.
Nice sense of proportion from New York 1 in their sports coverage this morning:
Headline story - Alex Rodriguez opts out of his contract. As an afterthought - Boston Red Sox win the World Series.
PS - Trust me, they take these things seriously. Giuliani's face was plastered all over the front cover of the New York tabloids last week because of a certain sporting faux pas. If he loses New York, you'll know why.
