Liberty Property Trust shows its true colors

As difficult as this economy and earnings season is, sports (like love) makes fools of us all.

So at the end of a conference call with financial analysts on Tuesday, the CEO of Liberty Property Trust made it clear where his loyalties lie when it comes to baseball.

William P. Hankowsky said:

My only closing remark is, 'Go Phillies.'

But then Hankowsky, who once ran the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation, added to that only remark:

We do have a Tampa Bay office, but the majority of the firm is up here so we're going to be Phillies fans.

Talk about a top-down management style. I guess the Florida staff will have to leave those Rays caps and jerseys at home...
