Though give me the Cubs Cards rivalary any day over this Boston Red Sox Yankees thing. Your right, seems like every celebrity is either a fan of the Bo Sox or Yankees. Just like in NBA where its either the Knicks (you know, when they were good) or the Lakers.


I was gonna say something to that effect. Saying that you're sick of hearing about Yanks/Sox is understandable. Saying that it isn't a good rivalry is ignorant. For those who watch them, the games all have some excitement. For the record, I would put Yanks/Sox as 1A and Cards/Cubs as 1B.

Name another one of my "horrible points"... This was one of my weaker ones but it was meant to just be a sarcastic remark/jab at Yankee fans. No offense. Every team has fair-weather fans, the Yankees just have more of them.

I think a lot of Red Sox fans are idiots. I hate those who boo Manny after a defensive mistake & then cheer him after he hits a home run the next inning.

Oh I have no problem with the rivalary, but I dont want to see it while my Cubs are playing on the same network at the same time. And I live in Kenosha Wisconsin which is a lot closer to Chicago then New York. At least the showed the Cubs game, instead of going to the New York Boston game half way through. Though the 15 minute updates were pretty irritating. Oh and the stupid Scooter thing is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

LOL. He found 1 so now you want him to find another 1. :-D

I will say this. There are more Yankee fans, by far, than any other team. Some of that is bandwagoners, some because they have been good for so long, and some because they're the Yankees. The bottom line is that there are more Yankee fans than for any other team. Since there are more fans, there are bound to be more idiots. Since it appears that you are a Red Sox fan, I would also assume that you would exaggerate that number as well. :-?

That's not right for Varitek to throw the first punch without taking off the mask. Maybe next time A-Rod should hold onto the bat as he takes first base. Seems only fair.

The fact that there are more Yankee fans, as well as the fact that their owner has more disposable cash to toss around, has little to do with baseball and everything to do w/ demographics. The fact that the Yankees don't ALWAYS win, despite the demographic favor that has fallen on New York is why sports are fun. It certainly is easier to buy a team but there are no guarantees.

I am pretty sure that if (or perhaps when?) St. Louis and New York meet up, the Cards will destroy the Yankees. Their teams are similar but I don't see the Yankees matching the Cards' intensity. I'm sure Edmonds would have liked to have given Zambrano a few words on the way to first after he got plunked but he sucked it up and will be playing while Carlos gets a 'time out' and can go sulk. And Zambrano threw it a lot harder than Arroyo did.

that doesnt make sense to me. O:-)

what would you expect him yo do after ARod is standing right in his face and says "c'mon motherf---er"... ? say "oh wait, lemme take my mask off first just to be fair just so all the wonderful Yankee fans can be happy, and then i'll fight you."


It seems to me that this point above by tongue is nullified because Tek threw the first punch, so he had the option to decide to take off his mask or not. It seems to take only a fraction of a second to shed it when he dogs a foul ball behind the backstop.
