I was at the Yankees game on Tuesday when they defeated the A’s. And boy is it never too early for a Red Sox rivalry. In the bleacher section was a man wearing a Red Sox jersey. I couldn’t quite make out the player name but it didn’t matter. The yelling was incredible and nearly the entire stadium chanted a “Red Sox Suck!” for about 5 minutes.
Hey I’m a Yankees fan but I’ll be the first to say we really don’t have a right to yell these chants at this point do we? Our Yankees haven’t won a world series since 2000 and frankly I don’t even know if the Red Sox care anymore. It’s a little lame at this point.
But I have a feeling once Gay Rod comes back for us, this rivalry might be as strong as ever come playoff time. In any event, I’m looking forward to watching the games and even more so for when the Red Sox come to town and 75 home runs are hit in the series.
Man is Mark Teixeira gonna get a ton of boos at Fenway.
