I knew there would be a lot of sorrow but I’d rather know bitter-sweet happiness than a grey uneventful life.

Hey! Look who was an Al Smith fan.
Hot off the New York Yankees’ World Series win in 1928, Babe Ruth supported Al Smith's unsuccessful presidential bid, even posing for the top photo with a very Smith-like cigar and bowler.
But according to Joseph Cummins, in Anything for a Vote: Dirty Tricks, Cheap Shots, and October Surprises in U.S. Presidential Campaigns, maybe not the best spokesperson:He would sometimes appear in his undershirt, holding a mug of beer in one hand and a spare rib in the other. Worse, if he met with any dissent while praising Smith, he would snarl, “If that’s the way you feel, the hell with you!” and stagger back inside.In the bottom photo, in presumably happier times, Babe and Smith are playing a round of golf at the Miami Biltmore Hotel & Country Club in Coral Gables, Florida on January 17, 1930.
