It appears that Kelly Ripa is no longer angry at Michael Strahan. During the former New York Giant's final "Live With Kelly and Michael" appearance, Kelly allowed Michael to plant a wet one on her cheek. He also toasted to her and told his co-host that he loves her.

“Kelly, you are the best. I love you, baby” he said as the champagne started to roll in.

It very well could be a PR move. The fallout from the announcement Michael was leaving the show was ugly for both him and Kelly. It made both of them look bad. But, the goodbye seemed pretty genuine.

For years the city of Boston grit its teeth while NY teams dominated the championship circuit, giving birth to the oldest, greatest, most amazing (and sickeningly overplayed if you're from Chicago) city rivalry in sports. Now, the Red Sox have won the World Series, The Celtics have the best record in the NBA, and the Patriots are looking to be the greatest football team of all time (an undefeated record of 19 and 0). The only thing that stands in Bean Town's way of eternal glory is a Big Blue Apple.
