  • If one were to dissect the brain of the average Yankee fan (after death of course ), how much grey matter, compared to the average fan of any other team, do you think one would find? :noidea

    Assuming, of course, one would find any.

      What's this? Speaking ill of a Yankeefan without even doing obeisance and asking permission first! We'll need to plug this egregious breach with lead. *Blam blam*


      Also Evan? I remember the three consecutive Championships quite well, though 1996 is hazy. My favorite player was Paul O'Neill.(Now it's Mariano Rivera) My brother's favorite player was (and is) Jorge Posada. My sister's favorite player was Roger Clemens. My other brother's favorite player is Derek Jeter. The rest are too young right now.:gt

        Blowing a 3-0 lead and losing four straight. The Ultimate Choke.

        Yeah, I know we didn't have a great season...but there are quite a few Sox fans who can live with that..just as long as the Yankees choke as well.

        But during the current streak..LOSING to Arizona and Florida...PRICELESS
        sigpicMan, do I *HATE* the Yankees!!!!!!

          My wife is a Met fan from Long Island..she's from a town just over the border from Queens. She tells me that the Yankee fans at her school were brain-dead...

          • Ahh, 1990 was a great year for Boston. Yankees went down south with injuries, and Boston won the AL East title. They were swept, but the big moment was that the Yankees finished LAST! There were only 65-67 wins that year for the Bronx Bombers that year. How about that?

              Do you really want me to post all the times the poor Red Sox have finished last? And for the last time! Yankee fans are not brain-dead! Look at Mattingly or DoubleX! Or even me!

                  Now I can only hope for a St Louis WS win. No more Motown. I like the Mets, but I'd never hear the end of it if they'd won. That "We own NY" thing would never die down for another year.
                  Um... you guys taking this seriously kind of proves my point, one in which the intention was purely toungue and cheek.

                  You're right, though, on not wanting the Mets to win. I hate it when fans feel they have the right to boast in their team winning the freaking championship. I mean, where do they get the audacity?! If the Tigers take it, I'll probably just clap my hands and let out a mototonous "yay" and that will be the end of it. Perhaps once we get a second Detroit team and we are ahead of them 26-2 in titles, then we'll have the right to say whatever we want...

                        They were passed down to me by Ken, the Red Sox fan creator of this thread. However, passing them to a Yankee fan would be just plain blasphemy. (just search google for smilies) Any yankee fans wanna come at me? Gimme your best shot

                            Oh yeah, here I come. A left, and a right. Another left and another right. AN UPPERCUT TO THE JAW!!! And the thread was saved.

                            Thanks Evan

                                I wouldn't mind a mets victory, except that the New York Slimes is always breathlessly gasping praises of Willie Randolph and Omar Minaya while including snide comment about the Yankees and how heartless and cruel they are.
