I was listening to a radio show in NY (via a radio app) that NYC is "forced" to be a baseball town because of the long success of the Yankees. But it really is a basketball town. If you think about it, there are more NBA stars that hail from NYC than MLB stars.
Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.
If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.
