: New Jersey's Divided Attention

New Jersey's Divided Attention

Politics has always been considered sport in New Jersey.  From our locally elected Boards of Chosen Freeholders to our off year gubernatorial elections, New Jersey voters seem to relish our down and dirty campaigns.

baseball (sxc)But this year, our gubernatorial election scheduled for Tuesday, November 3rd, will have to vie for voter attention.  You see as much as we love a good political fight, we also love battling among ourselves in a north-south showdown of Philadelphia and New York teams!

So lining up on one side you have South Jersey (roughly Trenton and south) cheering their Phillies, and our neighbors to the north doing the same for their Yankees!

Me, I'm not paying much attention to either!  I plan to vote Independent and I'm a Mets fan!

Laura...I'm A Red Sox Fan, with you being a Mets fan it looks like we were backing the loosing horse this year. Since I can't cheer on my team I don't care who wins the series.

I try to avoid politics if I can help it these days, and I don't really watch baseball, so this is an easy one for me.

Laura, I hardly ever admit I was raised in New Jersey.  There was a time I was proud of that, but these days it's hard to own up to it.  Have a great Garden State Day.

LOL Laura ... you actually made me chuckle out loud about the politics.  Sounds like you live here. :)
As far as the games ... may the best team win. :)
