  • OH YEAH WELL *****









    ***** These polite asteriks represent a use of shockingly bad language and some sadly neccessary violence. As we pick up with this thread everything is as it was before except that I am perspiring lightly and Ken and Evan are in a fully complacent and cooperative matter. OH and I almost forgot, they are now wearing 2 of those "I *heart* Jeter" shirts and are missing several limbs and non critical organs. Please ignore these facts and continue with the thread.
    2009 World Series Champions, The New York Yankees

      Also, the Yankees list Evan, however long, still can't match the pure futility of the poor Beantowners! And let's not forget the many times they blew the World Series. Not the playoffs, so no Bucky Dent, but also if you match that against the Yankees no 2004.
      I think, in fact I know he was speaking of the past even though maybe not intentional. He says the Yanks are turning into the Buffalo Bills. Do we have to read between the lines here. The Bills getting to the big show in the past or close to the big show and then falling short, so thats whats happening to the Yanks of late. What took place with the Bills has now taken place with the Yanks in recent times.

      Hope he doesn't take it to heart, me and my Bosox rival buddies have been giving the old back and forth for years with no hard feelings.

      I have posted more than once of my respect for the Bosox fans. All those years, all those disappointments, those close almost made it's and they still come out, back their team never give up. Being a Yankee fan 2004 really hurt but I thought to myself, if anyone deserved what took place it was the Bosox fans.

        It is in the same category like

        NINETEEN EIGHTTEEN
        Actually, my fellow Dutchman (before you ask, father was from Amsterdam and I have dual-citizenship) it's more along the lines of TWO THOU SAND...TWO THOU SAND

        I mean. six post-seaspn appearances in a row and you CHOKE in all of them...

          Chris forgets that the Dutch bought Manhattan from the natives, not The Bronx.

              And how many times have the Bosox been there in that 6 year stretch, one time. A Bosox backing a team who have been second to the Yanks so often in the last 10 seasons mocking a team that has finished ahead of the Bosox so often. WOW, one WS champ in 86 seasons and you get on the Yanks for not taking it all for 6 seasons.

              You had bragging rights for one season 2004, your no longer the champs. Everything is now in the past and you took it all once in 86 seasons, not even close to what the Yanks have done in that period.

                  And how long has it been since you were the champs? Six years... a bit longer than two.

                  Choking six years a row in the post-season. Yeah, I'd be real proud of that.

                    That's real impressive. One Trophy in eighty-six years. So we havn't won since 2000. That's six years. And you're comparing those six years to eighty-six years of futility! Losing in the postseason is not the same as choking. Did the Twins choke? The Padres? The Dodgers? And last year! The Red Sox got swept embarrasingly by the White Sox. Did they choke too?

                      Yeah, but you're not supposed to choke six years in a row. The Boss says so. The Boss hates to lose.

                      Yeah...we hadn't won in 86 years. I personally hold The Gerbil responsible for 1978. But...WE didn't have a 3-0 ALCS lead in 2004 and then lose four in a row. Didn't ESPN call that the biggest choke of all-time on one of their countdown shows?

                      Yeah..you Yankee fans keep throwing 86 years between titles at me. I just laugh every fall as they fail to bring home #27 for Evil King George.

                      I could bring up the 1976 or the 1962 World Series..

                      On the other hand, a picture from the 1960 Series is worth a thousand words...

                        Why not? Why should Yankee fans and Red Sox fans not get along with each other? Troy and I can, so why not others?

                        That would be the start of world peace.

                          We can, but not so much in the "Bitter Rivals" thread.

                            I swear, if the Yankees don't win again until 2085, they will still defend themselves with "yeah well you guys took 86 years, which is still more than us, so there!" I can also hear, if the BoSox take 24 more championships in that span, "Yeah well we have 26, which is more than your 25!" I can hear it now.

                            Teams whose payrolls are equal to, or less than the Yankees infield don't choke, they lose. Teams with a $200 million payroll who are the majority's favorite to win it all, who lose to heavy underdogs...they choke.

                            Next year, you will say that it's only 7 years. Only a matter of time...

                              The Red Sox have six Series, so they would have to take twenty more. Now lets have a math lesson! Twenty-six is more than twenty-five. Remember! Twenty-six is more than twenty-five! Just repeat it to yourself. Twenty-six is more than twenty-five! Also, the Yankees will most certainly win another Championship in the next eighty years. Oh wait, teams have had to wait that long!

                                Who cares? To tell you the truth, it would have been nice in 67 or 75 for the Sox to win the series, but i'll only be turning 21 in the coming year... Doesn't hurt me any when someone talks about 86 years, as it only too them about 8 since I became a fan... And how old are you, 13? So the last time you saw the Yanks win you were 6 or so? Do you even remember that? I'll take my WS two years ago when i was 19 compared to yours thats probably still hard to remember... So, in conclusion...
