    yeah and it wasn't a bad read for the first 100 or so...

    i wonder how many of the posts are just banter between you and Ken...not sure there's been anything additive to the thread subject in many moons, except maybe someone wants a record?

    enough already...

    The "banter", as you call it, is between two very opinionated baseball fans extending what their two teams have been involved in for a century, it's called a rivalry. {see title page} It's your choice to come here to read and add your thoughts to the thread. It's also your choice not to . . .

    nono... not "best thread ever" its:

    "best...thread...evar!!!11!"

    The 'a' and 1's in the !'s are mandatory.

    Anyway, this really is the best thread ever, at least on this forum. It's fun. It's yankees vs. redsox, back to back with insults and all that good stuff.

    love it.

    Yeah, when you were in the Fenway or Yankee Stadium bleachers, the Bronx bodysnatchers replaced your "LETS GO RED SOX!" with "LET'S GO YANKEES!"

    How'd you get dragged into it? I had to drag some unwilling soul into this thread, didn't I?

    I wonder if the "Yankee Nation" enjoyed the brief stay in first place. Sheesh, I thought they'd hold it a couple of weeks at least.

    AUGH! never never never never! My non-corporeal form is just as loyal to the Sox as the rest of me, and can not be turned, no matter what the nefarious Bronx bodysnatchers may try. (I see a movie... or at least a comic book, in this.)

    Thanks for letting me know my choices on involvement in this forum KenFougere!

    Anyway, you may think that you are extending a [bitter] rivalry {see title page} - I think you're extending a thread for the sake of it...no harm in that -AT ALL- most GOOD forums end-up having a thread like this once in a while...

    ...I just happen to think that the best threads are those that have a bit more substance for the majority...I hate to miss a good post because it's buried in an inordinantly long thread...but no big whoop KenFougere, stay cool - I'm glad you're having fun...

    The Bronx Bodysnatchers aren't finished. Remember, it's still June. Let's see what happens after the break, if history is any indication!

    With Pettitte, it was sloppy "D" including on his own part. With Moose, it was 4 balls golfed as souvenirs. Hope that Contreras can stable this ship, as you guys haven't led us by more than 1/2 game all season so far.

    yep!!! but like i said no big whoop, just no where near the best thread ever...this thread really has nothing to do with bitter rivalries anymore and when 2-300 (or more) of the posts are from just 2 people i wish they'd start a new one...

    something like:

    "Why KenFougere and YankeeMan like to 'post' to eachother several times a day , intead of e-mail or PMs"

    ...and if i keep on 'whinging' then this thread could reach a 1000 posts in not time (please tell me this thread'll die before then, please!)...


    cheers

    If we use PM's or e-mail -- other Yankee (and BoSux) fans don't get a chance to "chime in" -- which is part of the fun!

    But this topic is not limited to ONE rivialry. Others are welcome but it is clear that ONE is a lot more vocal.

    Ken, Sportsline's not giving me the right facts. I figured since both games were done, they'd have it right. I'd thought it was only a 1/2 game lead, but after you'd had the double-header, I must've gotten a few wires scrambled.

    This is what I was looking at originally: http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/standings (shows a tie)

    This is what I should've looked at: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/standings (shows just as you've indicated)

    As far as rivalries in other sports that compare to the BoSox-Yanks....

    AUBURN VS. ALABAMA..... THE IRON BOWL.

    These two schools, as well as their fans, absolutely despise each other.

    I honestly can't even begin to put into words the intensity of this rivalry... GOD, It's AWESOME!

    All I can say is that I feel priveledged to be part of such a special tradition.

    AND, WAR DAMN EAGLE!

    Cripes, no wonder everybody prefers ESPN.com. I remember that at least an hour after a game, sportsline.com would have the proper standings, but I'll need to use a more reliable source now.

    Oh well, first place smells mighty fine, but I'll have to hope it still smells sweet this time tomorrow, as the first place baton keeps being passed up.

    For poster i8mytoes, I'd add Army-Navy as far as college football, Duke-Tar Heels for NCAA hoops, and the old Knicks/Celtics/Lakers tri-team rivalries of the 1970s and 1980s weren't anything to sneeze at either.
