10 Reasons the Yankees are better than the Mets

Postby ajgnydc722 » Fri Jun 25, 2004 11:57 am

In response to GSes, I got the same type of email from the Yankees, and here's what it said:

10 reasons it's better to be a Yankees fan than a Mets fan:


10. Monument Park

9. Bob Sheppard, the Pontiff of the P.A.

8. The 'YMCA' infield drag

7. World Series Titles: Yankees 26, Mets 2

6. Pennants: Yankees 39, Mets 4

5. "Enter Sandman"

4. Pinstripes

3. Nathan's Hot Dogs

2. An All-Star lineup

1. Yankee Stadium vs. Shea Stadium...no contest

you don't really need a list dude...i think even the mets fans know that the mets are a joke. I went to shea last year and instead of cheering for the mets, they just cursed off roger cedeno the entire game...that and the person "singing" the national anthem ended up choking while in the middle of it and just turning off the mic..it was classic.

10. Monument Park
- Been there, love it, hard to compete with history

9. Bob Sheppard
- Wonderful if you speak "mumbling" fluidly

8. The 'YMCA' infield drag
- WTF? ;)

7. World Series Titles: Yankees 26, Mets 2
- How many since '62? Suddenly doesn't look so overwhelming.

6. Pennants: Yankees 39, Mets 4
- If the Mets had been around since 1407 they'd have more than 4

5. "Enter Sandman"
- Too bad Piazza loves Metallica, Piazza = Mariano ownage ;) So what if it's only a 3 AB sample.

4. Pinstripes
- Hmm matches my boxers

3. Nathan's Hot Dogs
- Did they get rid of the Nathan's stand at Shea? Or is this a private "going down on the dog" joke between the Boss and Jeter? I'm a Sabretts man myself. :-b

2. An All-Star lineup
- What the hell Super Joe makes any lineup "All-Star-Like"

1. Yankee Stadium vs. Shea Stadium
- True .. I hate being able to park my car w/o losing all my hubcaps

:-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Amazins, do you get the Mets email for rivalry weekend? If so I'd love to see that list. Please post it if anyone has it.

[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
