    Tony, personally, I much prefer the "intense battles". The days of Fisk & Munson, Bill Lee, etc. are exactly what made this THE BEST "Bitter-Rivalry" not just in baseball, but all professional sports...

    This is how Yankee Stadium looked when the Red Sox came in to play!

      Some of those seats stink for boxing unless you had binoculars.

      Reminds me of the night I sat near the top of the LA Coliseum watching a football game in bad seats. The top was swaying back and forth and all I could think of was when did they predict the next earthquake would come to So. California.

      I recall the rivalry was keen back in 1955 when I first rooted for the Red Sox.

          I was up so high that even the eagles put up a no fly zone sign.
          I was up so high that vendors shook their heads no and wouldn't come up and serve me.
          I was up so high that the restrooms had holes in the floor instead of toilets.
          I was up so high that my binoculars got frostbite.

              Go Pats!

              I skiied at Killington and Cannon when I was young. Cross country was more my speed, and now I ski once or twice every winter.

              My son bungee jumped from the tallest platform in New Zealand. He has skiied in the Rockies and climbed the Southern Alps.

              I didn't like sitting in the Upper Deck at Shea Stadium.

                Ya, the Pats played awesome. But they can't fall behind so much in the AFC Championship!

                Killington was my favorite mountain. I loved their 4.5 mile trail!

                You must be quite proud of your son for all of his accomplishments! My son never was interested in sports at all. I love sports. I tried to get him interested, but nothing I tried worked . . . .

                  Coaching my son's little league team led me to BBF. I enjoy most of the discussions here and can't wait for the Bos-NY rivalry to heat up.

                  I think some kids prefer either an individual sport like tennis or track or swimming, or one of the arts. Nowadays boys are excited by video games and parents complain they don't want to practice a sport to get better.

                  • What is a YankeeMan to do...

                    I know Tom Brady and I like him. He's a nice guy. I'd like to see him get a fourth ring.

                    But I hate the Patriots.

                      BTW, I'm wondering who's gonna finish in 3rd and who's gonna' get last this season... :clown:

                      • As a Sox fan, I honestly hope the Yankees turn it around soon. The rivalry is no fun when one or both of the teams suck. That being said, I'm not optimistic about what the Boston front office has been up to this winter. I think the Sandoval deal is going to become an albatross very soon, and they are relying on bounceback years from a lot of players.
