The one time I met Anthony Weiner in person was in the Shea Stadium parking lot the morning before the Trade Deadline in July 2005. At the time, he was stumping for a mayoral bid.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s true,Ã¢â‚¬Â Weiner said with an air of certitude to a group of constituents. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Mets have traded for Manny Ramirez, and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to have a press conference at noon.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Obviously, Rep. Weiner is about as reliable with baseball news as he is with his dalliances on the internet.
