Let's Go Yankees!

Sheeps I like you man, but give it up. You cannot convince a Yankee fan to feel bad for the Red Sox or their fans. Give 'em hell YANKS!

One more thing, not all of us follow the Yanks because they win, some of us remember days when the Bronx Zoo was in Yankee Stadium.

LET'S GO YANKEES!

Yeah -- losing is what makes the BoSox special! I'd hate to seem them break the trend when they've come this far... :(

But in good sportsmanship rivalries, I don't think there is any "kicking".

Being a sports fan is one of the few times it's acceptable to trash talk. That's part of the fun of it.

I was talking about the teams involved in the rivalry. I think I misinterpreted the point of the discussion that's going on. I was talking about teams while I think everyone else is talking about the teams fans. :)

My fault. :ph34r:

OH NJAY! What a picture...what a picture... :uni:

Oh yeah, and rivalry trash talk is acceptable it is those morons like the one at the A's game last night who laughed at the fact that a player could have been seriously injured. I hope he feels stupid today... His butt got booted from the park... :lol:

Winner of the 2004 Lady Byng Award and the 2003 and 2004 Joe Nieuwendyk award.

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

It was one of the pics I took when I went to a Yanks game on August 22nd. Just cropped some of it out and used a Paint Shop effect.

I have a lot of classmates who have jumped on the Red Sox bandwagon because they're in Boston and who were at the riots last night. I don't really remember the specifics of the riots in LA after the Lakers won, but from what I hear it was pretty crazy here last night. There are a lot of people up here from the Tri-State area going to college and Red Sox fans were ripping all of the NY license plates off cars. They also supposedly flipped a car and tried to flip an SUV because they had Yankees bumper stickers on. I'm all for celebrating a victory, but that's just wrong. :angry:

Someone should tell them its just the Division Series.

But whatever, Red Sox fans are known to be obxious, and yes, I'm generalizing there.

Is there anyone alive to remember if they were as obxious back in 1918? :lol:

I know. That's like the Ducks planning a celebration for winning the Western Conference. There's only one winner, Sox fans, and you're not it yet.

It's funny, cause you're also being obnoxious. But at least you're not flipping over cars...

Can't give it up. I'll get emotional (see posts during Ottawa series) but I would never kick a fan when they are down. Remember 1994? I do. It sucked then and thinking about it now sucks. 97 too.

However good it feels to be on top, you gotta remember how awful it feels to be on the bottom.

But you see... it's not that I even like the team, it's that I have pity for their fans. I want to see them win just so it's over. As I said, it's easy to be a Yankees fan. A first-round exit is awful. It's like being a Devils fan. Right now, it's easy to like them, they're good! Same with the Yankees. No matter what, they win a lot and are constantly good. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being a Yankees fan, nor being a Devils fan. But it takes guts to be... a Sabres fan, for instance. Sure their team went to the Finals in 99... but look how that series has ended and every single bad circumstance since then. That's dedications. Stretch those four years into eighty-five... if you can't empathize with them in the least, that's all you, but I for one can't help but feel bad for them.

GO Red Sox, and GO Cubs.

I have empathy for Cubs fans. I already stated in another thread that I would enjoy and Red Sox vs. Cubs Series, but I am not rooting for one.

I am not even close to being as bad as Red Sox fans. When the Devs win the Cup I don't go around and like flip cars or any of that retarded sh!t. When the Yanks beat the Red Sox all those times in the ALCS, I didn't go out and beat the crap out of anyone from Mass. or do anything to any car from Mass.

And if the Yanks win this one, I still won't do that. I will be more happier in the past because I'm older now, I understand more, and it would just feel so much better.

Watching a team that can't get the job done continue to fail is the best. Never makes me feel sorry for them because of how their fans act, makes me happier.

GO YANKS!

Exactly. Red Sox fans piss me off. I am in Sox country up here, and it's like one win gives them enough reason to get in your face.

[quote name='mrsheeps' date='Oct 7 2003, 09:47 AM']It's easy to like the Yankees. They win so much it's boring. Liking the Red Sox of the Cubs is dedication to an ever-losing cause. It's like throwing your entire heart onto a lottery ticket every single year.

Then why don't you like the Rangers?

I like any team with New Jersey before their name. I dislike any team with New York before their name. Hence why I dislike the Yankees. Move to New Jersey and I'll like 'em.

I was just kidding NJay, obviously my heart wouldn't pump once for any fan, of any team, who has that little amount of class.
