Can't see themselves in the mirror?
But seriously, there were Yankee fans in front of me in Fenway at ALCS game 5, and they were all right. Of course, they didn't have the opportunity to gloat, which helped.
There were also obnoxious Sox fans. One drunk guy wanted the Sox to throw at every Yankee. He must have expected to lose anyway. Then there were the screeching sorority girls who only wanted to kill A-Rod. I guess he was too sexy for their shirts.Still, there's no topping Yankee fans for being the world's worst winners.
I grew up...
... a Cardinals fan, but I don't recall hating the Cubs. Why hate the source of so many wins?
The Mets, though, sure.
Believe this or not: I was in Marlborough, MA, last night before the game for a rally for my state senator. Ted & Vicki Kennedy were the headliners, but the surprise guest was Luis Tiant. After the Senior Senator fired up the faithful, lots of us crowded around El Tiante. One woman proudly showed me her Kerry-Edwards-Red Sox sign, autographed.
That's great, I said, but you should go back and ask him to put a date on it.
Now there's a souvenir!Then, the Sox won during the totality of a lunar eclipse. If you believe in omens, they are all lining up. Me, I believe in GOTV, and we will win or lose based on what we do between now and Tuesday.
