Well fark. Mariano Rivera, you've transformed yourself from the greatest postseason reliever in history into the greatest GOAT in New York history. I hope you're proud of yourself, blowing the game like that.
 
2001-11-04 11:29:27 PM  
w00t! It was a hell of a series, and the best team won. I am glad that the D-Backs dethroned the damn Yankees. Bout damn time.
 
2001-11-04 11:29:29 PM  
I'm glad. Not that i have any thing against new york(the city) but haven't new york (the team) won enough? Just given my 2 cents.

And STFU, Raysmith.
 
2001-11-04 11:29:54 PM  
Talk about a fantastic world series.... damn. Great stuff, especially the way it ended. Even though I pulled for the yanks (hahaha), the D'Backs did damn good.
 
2001-11-04 11:30:27 PM

As said before... Mets stink, Red Sox stink... etc etc... they all watched the game from their houses...

Congrats D'backs for a wonderful world series.

Go Yankees :)
 
2001-11-04 11:33:32 PM

2001-11-04 11:34:50 PM  
I'm not really a fan of either team, but it was a great series.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go turn over some cars and set them on fire.
 
2001-11-04 11:37:05 PM  
From a Mets fan - THANKS ARIZONA!!!!
 
2001-11-04 11:38:04 PM  
well, im a huge yankees fan, but i must admit, with both randy johnson and Curt Schilling pitching in the same game, the d-backs wanted to win. they deserved it.
 
2001-11-04 11:44:20 PM  
Randy and Curt are shareing the mvp trophy. good job guys.
 
2001-11-04 11:50:02 PM  
AcYdRIP69: Yeah, too bad the Mets didnt make it again so the Yankees beat them once again.
 
2001-11-04 11:55:53 PM  
I won.
 
2001-11-05 12:23:30 AM  
AcYdRlP69, "From a Mets fan - THANKS ARIZONA!!!!"

umm yeh your an idiot, if the mets were actually a quality baseball team they would of beat the damn diamondbacks in the first place, and then just maybe gotten into the playoff, and then just maybe gotten into the world series. Then would of lost to the Yankees anyways. But instead, they sat home on their arses, watching it from there 6' $16,000 plasma televisions. Which has nothing to do with any of this, other than that fact that that was one hell of a world series, and im very sad to see the yankees not win, but this has become one hell of a loppsided rant, really not knowing where the hell im going with it anymore, so im going to just sit and the corner and cry. Ohh to the the diamandbacks, good game you bastards. Who knew he would of blown a save, hasnt done that in more than five years. FARK!

ok. time to cry.

The Yankees: The best baseball team that the biggest market can buy.

Those are just a few reasons why so many people feel like they have to 'hate' NY. It just goes to show how easy and popular it is to dislike a historic and successful team like the Yankees.
I'm not saying that the Yankees are THE best team in the majors but they are definetly among the best. Arizona is also a good team but will they be able to preserve their team for longer than a year? I doubt it. Look to see the management cash out on the recent success of the Diamondbacks and the players to bail out for higher paying contracts [do the names Al Leiter and Kevin Brown sound familiar? yes, both former Marlins].
Before you make broad, ignorant statments like, "Yankees suck" or "Yankee fans are ignorant," take the time to be informed so you can back your words with facts instead of infantile emotions.

On that note: Congratulations to the Arizona Diamondbacks from a very disappointed NY Yankee fan. Enjoy it while it lasts...

oops
here's the complete version of my sermon...

For those of you that simply follow baseball to hate the Yankees and nothing else, here are a few facts:
-Steinbrenner and his spending habits? Let's talk about Jerry Colangelo... a$345 million stadium? a $81 million team salary? please...
-Compare players brought up through the farm system: NY - Jeter, Soriano,Spencer, Bellinger, Pettite, Choate. ARI - none
-League Championships: NYY - 38, ARI - 1
-World Championships: NYY - 26, ARI - 1
-A consistent and substantial fan base [http://www.gallup.com/poll/releases/pr010402.asp]
-The Yankees were 'dominated' by the D'backs? Then why did the series go thefull seven games?
Those are just a few reasons why so many people feel like they have to 'hate' NY. It just goes to show how easy and popular it is to dislike a historic andsuccessful team like the Yankees.

FDparamedic, the reason people hate the Yankee's and are happy that they lost is threefold:
1. They are the winningest team in baseball. That means they have pissed off alot of teams.
2.Their fans are cocky. So when the Yanks lose, and their fans taken down a notch, it's a breath of fresh air.
3.Rivaleries. Hell, I admit it. As a BoSox Fan in New England, their is not greater rival then the Yankee's. It makes the game a little more intresting.

So people are gonna wish the Yanks to fail. I know I do.
It's nothing personal, but all Yankees fans are gonna have to eat some humble pie, cause the Yanks aren't the champs anymore. As a Red Sox Fan, I have learned one phrase they may help ya...
"There always next year..."

Yankee's Suck!!!!

Publikwerks: Yankee's Suck!!!!

I could not have done it better myself...

Did I or Did I not Take the time to elaborate why people think the Yankee's suck?

"Thanks for proving my point PW.

What point? That the Yankee's Suck? Thats a given. It doesn't need to be proven....

Yankee's fans talk alot of trash. Hence when people get the chance, they trash the Yanks. If you can't deal with people saying yankee's suck, tough.

Publikwerks: [some random words while trying to prove his point]

angry words from an angry government worker
Like I said before, thanks again for proving my point...
 
2001-11-06 02:19:29 PM  
seriously Publikwerks
Team rivalries aside, you were probably the only anti-Yankee fan to voice some opinion backed with some facts. Although, you have to admit you lost your focus towards the end of your boobies and with your answer to my post.

And who cares now anyways?
especially since this comment board has been relegated to the 'previous seven days' section of fark.

end of story
 
2001-11-06 02:21:45 PM  
'end of your boobies?'
jeez, I must be drunk or something...

end of your post, I meant...

damn you Drew and your boobies posts!!! [he he he...]
