ncermak, did you edit your original post to include the "who do you want to win?" Or am I losing it and just missed it?

It's fun living outside of Hartford, CT at times like this. I think I live right on the boarder of where Sox and Yanks fans meet...A couple of miles in either direction and the table turns big time!

There are plenty of poor sports on both sides, my friend!

A fact I was reminded of when the Sox were down 3 games to none. Someone at my gym was so eager to rub it in that he did it in the middle of one of my sets, not cool!

You give Yankee fans waaaayy too much credit. They are not above anything. As for "Yankees Suck", well, they just do, and they deserve it. There is something wrong with winning a world series every 4 years on average, and being so damn smug about it.

And there is nothing worse than a New England Yankee fan. Except Connecticut I guess.

:D

I absolutely abhor team sports and the commercialism they represent now. It has NOTHING to do with the love of the game anymore. They're all corrupt as it gets.

that said, I will eternally root for the underdog in ANY situation, so my barely noticeable "root" will go to the Red Sox

Im a Yankees Fan by birth (Born in Jersey). They're going to defeat the sox tonight, but I think that the Cardinals will beat them in the series. As for the whole poor sportsmanship thing, the Sox fans are much much worse. If I were to wear a NYY hat into Boston after Boston loses a game to the Yanks, I would probally run into alot of trouble (known from experience). However, during the summer me and my friends went to new york for the weekend and one of them wore a Red Sox hat thinking he would cause all kinds of trouble. We must have been to 40 places that day, only ONE PERSON said anything to him, and that was only because we had been standing in line chatting with the guy for a good hour, and we were getting really bored. The thing with Sox fans is that they all hate the Yankees, but with the Yankees, the Red Sox are just another team to play, nothing more. Try as you may, if you went to New York, you wouldnt be able to find any "Red Sox Suck" Shirts, but up here I see "Yankees Suck" Shirts EVERYWHERE. People around here just need to realize that there is no curse of the bambino, and that every time the Sox talk about it, they lose. Im glad to see the ball parks limiting the number of beers you can have though, maybe it will help to curtail the riots when the Red Sox lose the series.

As far as winning a world series at least once every four years and being smug about it, wouldnt you be? Plus they arent even that smug, just proud. I know that if I was top ranked snowboarder in the world for a season at least once every four, I would be damn proud, and probally even get a little smug.

By the way I voted yankees.

I see that there's a lot of New England folks chiming in...for any die-hard Boston fan you have to read the game by game commentary of Bill Simmons aka "The Sports Guy" on Page 2 at espn.com. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/archive?columnist=simmons_bill&root=page2

As a born & bred member of the Nation, he truly captures the passion, swinging emotions, and obsession that New Englanders have for the Red Sox in all of his writings.

For those of you who can't understand the "Yankees Suck" comments or any other tasteless comments about that other team....you must first understand the fact that the Red Sox are woven into the fabric of New England culture. There's a mystique about them and Fenway that's ingrained into our psyche since birth. Sometimes we go overboard and cross the line, but that's just testament to how passionate and obsessed we are about our team. Yeah, it's unhealthy and after the past two games the whole city needs one big supply of Zoloft to cure our mood swings ....but heck, that's the trials and tribulations of a Boston fan. We live by the Sox and die by the Sox.

Ortiz for President!!!

Are you telling me that if the Red Sox outspent the Yankees by a factor of 2 on their payroll, consistently dashed Yankee fans' hopes on the rocks year after year, and won world series at an unnatural rate defying laws of probability, while the Yanks suffered a seemingly endless drought.... that Yankee fans would continue to be so "noble"?

Come on.

Is anyone in New England getting any work done this week? What time do these games go to there? I'm having trouble staying awake for the whole game and I'm 3 hours behind.

Go Sox! Yankees Suck! Some day maybe we'll have a Red Sox vs. Giants World Series. It would be like when the Bruins play the Sharks. I just don't know who to root for. You can take the boy out of New England...

So true.

I didn't even grow up in New England - I grew up in the Saratoga NY area - in my mother's side of the family (all New Englanders) being a Sox fan is a family tradition, and my mom indoctrintaed me at a young age (5 y/o, 1975, 1st baseball memories are the World Series that year) I still carry it in my blood!

This October and last, it seems like I run into other Sox fans everywhere I go here in OR.

I do think a lot of fans on both sides take it way too far... but I also don't think "Yankees Suck" is going too far. (Nor do I think Yankee fans saying "1918", "Who's your daddy", or "Red Sox suck" is going too far). Violence - that's too far. (I've seen it at both Fenway and Yankee, spent 5 years in Boston and 3 in New York, been to both stadiums quite a bit)

I have a number of friends back east who arte rabid Yankee fans. When the teams play each other, the casual observer might not think we are friends, but it's all in good fun.

Sorry to DA CHOWDA HEADS, :( THE EVIL EMPIRE will win:p , they allways do. besides, the Mashing savant has done nothing for you. Ortiz should play all alone you would have a better chance. just turn your attention to football, that way you won't be let down. look at the bright side ,better to lose now than in game 7 of the world series in the bottom of the ninth. That damn savant Manny did nothing then either.:mad:

I just caught the rerun of last night's Daily Show. Rob Corddry had a segment on Boston & the Curse of the Bambino...absolutely hysterical!!!

After the Daily Show my wife watched her hollywood gossip program (Entertainment Tonight) and the Sox/Yanks were actually mentioned by Mary Hart......um....I'm now questioning my manhood for just writing that. D'ooh!!! :D

8:00pm...game's about to begin...bring on Curt and his fancy new shoes!!
