Blind Item

Overheard at New York’s Regency Hotel this morning, which famous pint-sized film director/auteur and notorious Mets fan didn’t do the right thing in speculating that a certain Bronx team is the one to beat in 2008?

  • Sounds like Spike Lee but he’s a Yankees fan isn’t he?

  • the wife overheard, but I was under the impression that Lee was a Mets fan. Am I wrong? If so, apologies!

  • Lee is in fact a Yankees fan (despite naming his character Mookie in “Do The Right Thing”).
    But if it makes you feel any better, last year he was saying good things about the Knicks…

  • funny, I just saw Spike on the street downstairs from my office while getting lunch. He was wearing his yanks hat and fugly knick leather jacket. He’s getting around today.

  • Well if he thinks the Yankees are the ones to beat, more power to him. That’s why we play the games.

  • Well, my mistake. Makes the blind item pretty uninteresting.
    So why is a good Brooklyn guy like Lee rooting for the Yanks? Turncoat!

  • I could have sworn I’ve seen Lee wearing Mets caps before… apparently SF and I have had the same incorrect programming. The Matrix will surely fix this error in the next patch.

  • Hmm, I investigated further (because, you know, these are the really important issues) and it looks like Atheose and SF may not have been so wrong.
    I assumed Lee was a Yanks fan because during the 2006 playoffs, I saw him in the dugout during batting practice in full Yanks gear, shooting what he said were home movies with a really nice DV camera. He’s at a lot of games, too. But apparently Lee is a bit of a bigamist:
