Sports for most people are more exciting when you're rooting for someone. Hell, when I have insomnia and watch some dumb women's tennis match on ESPN at 3 a.m. I just pick the girl with the nicest bottom and start rooting away. I love baseball and love the playoffs even when the Mets aren't involved and I have to root for someone. This year I'm rooting for the Sox because they haven't won a WS since 1918. The true fans deserve it and the "bandwagon" fans are going to enjoy the ride.
This sour grapes by Yankee fans happens every year by fans of all teams. Last year on these same boards, there was plenty of sour grapes by Sox fans. That happens and I understand it. I also completely understand why someone would root for the Sox. It's not that. Root away. It's the fans that I am talking about that can't name more than 3-4 players on that team yet they act like they have loved them for decades. If your only Sox apparel was purchased within the past few days, this is what I am referring to as well.
