VP Biden rooting for Red Sox - for an interesting reason



Vice president Joe Biden said today in Boston he is rooting, even praying for the Red Sox to beat out the Rays for the AL wild-card spot.

His reason? His lead Secret Service agent is from Boston, and he doesn't want him, um, distracted. "Before his plane landed, Biden said, “I said everyone bow their head. We’re going to say a prayer that Boston wins the wild card spot … I’m worried if in fact they don’t, he’s going to be so damn miserable he will not jump in front of a bullet.” "
