Following the Boston Red Sox’s 4-3 victory over the New York Yankees, propelling them to the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, the Sox found themselves an unlikely supporter: Cardi B. Cardi, who is obviously from New York, was outed as a Sox fan on Red Sox legend David Ortiz’s Instagram account.
Cardi may be from the Bronx, and lives “nine blocks from the Yankee stadium” in her own words, but she comes from a long line of Red Sox fans, and isn’t about to end that tradition. “I know y’all don’t understand,” she explained, “but if y’all known me for a long time, you know I’ve always been a Red Sox fan.”
It might be jarring to hear for fans of the Bronx bombers, especially given Cardi’s thick New York accent, but sorry New Yorkers: at least one prominent New Yorker is rooting for the BoSox this October.
