        I couldn't consider this a fair bet. Reason being that if the "until 2005 season starts" is from November to April, then you'd have two Yankee fans wearing this, but if we win, we'd only have you. When I'd done the "two-for-one" thing w/yourself and someone else, it was always that if I'd lost, once one person's av/sig time had expired, I'd wear the next person's av/sig. With you, this wouldn't work.

        Now if you were to revise this, so that the 5 months of off-season becomes either 2.5 months apiece *OR* 5 months apiece, then I'd consider the 2-for-1 fair.

        Lemme know when you have another offer on the table. However, I'll only bet someone who posts a lot, since I'm not having my av+sig all over the place while the next person lays low.

          • BoSox Rule and ElHalo: knock it off and get some sleep.

            Yup, it's the ornery, evil Yankee fan again, so flame away!

                You two should consider exchanging cell phone numbers, so that you can meet up at or after the game.

                  After seeing the tasteless thread making fun of the deaths in Rivera's family, I can definitely see your point. As a fan of European soccer, I've seen how rivalries can go too far. I HATE HATE HATE the Yankees, but only in the baseball fantasy sense (except for Steinbrenner, I really hate that guy).

                      Through no fault of the excellent Admins and Mods there, many people see it as a Yankee board and thua a target to lay the smack down. That, however, wouldn't represent the majority of quality posters there. Here, we also practice civility. I seriously doubt that since there are so many Red Sox fans on a Yankee board, they could have this kind of thread. Too much mistrust. That's why we have this thread here: so that fans of both teams can openly root for their team, throw a few zingers at their opposing fans and have mutual fun in the process.

                      Now then, you two should stop taking the rivalry so seriously. It's not us out there on the grass, it's our boys. That said, enjoy the games and the threads. That's all you both need to do.
                      Ok Mattingly, maybe you are right about calling Mudvillemike pathetic. Maybe I should not have to use that word.


                      I think that as a Dutchman, I stand way outside this feud between the Yankees and Red Sox. So I think I can be quite objective about it.
                      But I don't think it makes any sense to make jokes about planes crashing down. That's why I reacted like that. Sorry.

                      I respect every fan of any ballclub and I really like the way we are conversating with each other overhere (in every way better than on the other board). And as a fan it must be possible to make a joke about your opponents once in a while (like I said before: what goes around comes around), but not any sick joke.

                          Yeah, New Coke and all that. But the hourglass bottles still show up in vending machines.

                              Which Coca-Cola? There was always regular Coca-Cola, and then when in the mid-80s when Michael Jackson came out w/his Pepsi Cola commercials (which he never even drank), Coke came out w/some sweeter "New Coke" thing to try copying Pepsi.

                              Bad move, since tons of devoted Coke buyers liked the distinguishing "kick" and less sweetness which the two products. It's like if Burger King made their Whopper a triple-decker, like the Big Mac.

                              After mass hording of regular Coke (which was then heavily marked up), they brought it back, called it "Classic Coke". it was obviously one of the biggest marketing mistakes to remove this. Didn't make sense.

                              Now then, if there's a peaceful game tonight, will you and ElHalo be good to each other? Just curious.

                                Between "jokes" I'd heard on some smack board about Thurman Munson's death, then two certain California-bound airplanes departed from Boston and went straight to New York's former WTC, I can tell you that "jokes" about flying airplanes should definitely be taboo.

                                I accept your apology, and like I'd implied before, we're all neighbors here. We may root for different teams, want different results, but we're still neighbors. My own landlord is a Red Sox fan, and don't think that it's only Connecticut which is divided.

                                Annie and I chat peacefully all the time, but neither of us is changing sides. Differ at times, yes, but always civilly, never stepping on each other's toes. That's the way we insist upon doing things and I believe that should set the tone f/others to follow. It's a good thing to do.
