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.

FromBoston.com: "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.” "
