f*ck new york!!!!!!!!!!

So let me get this straight... These people take turns to hit balls with sticks and run around a diamond shaped field.

I could imagine that being lots of fun if it was realtime!

Hey BigPeeler:

Isn't it nice to be wrong once in awhile? ;)
2001-11-04 11:31:54 PM  
Mets suck, Red Sox suck... pretty much any fan who hates the Yankees... their team sucks... except the D'backs.. which... has all of their fans situated in Arizona... thx.

1918... clap clap clap clap clap..

2001-11-04 11:32:10 PM  
Arizona rules - Yankees suck.
2001-11-04 11:33:25 PM  
Just out of curiousity, why do a bunch of people always seem to wish misfortune upon the New York Yankees? I don't watch baseball, so maybe I'm just missing something.
2001-11-04 11:33:47 PM  
I'm a fan of the winning team so long as the New York Yankees lose!!! CAUSE THEY ARE LOOOSERS!!!!!!
2001-11-04 11:33:56 PM  
I don't like the Yankees and it's funny to watch Randy Johnson run
2001-11-04 11:35:12 PM  
SuicideBoy--Because everyone's sick and tired of watching their team lose to the Yankees. I don't even give a rat's behind myself.

Don't you love it when someone posts "Yankees suck" and nothing else? Did you ever stop to think that the Yankees were just a GOOD BASEBALL TEAM, for Christ's sake?

Congratulations to the D-backs for a great series.
2001-11-04 11:38:01 PM  
Isn't that what the Arizona owner did this year...120 million on his team!
2001-11-04 11:41:27 PM  
Beer baron, that's what EVERY professional sports club owner in ANY sport does... including the d-backs with their two very good and very expensive star pitchers.
2001-11-04 11:41:28 PM  
Primarily because the Yankees buy their team. The way the MLB distributes revenue allows teams to have a payroll based on their amount of television revenue. As the Yankees have a local television market of more than 30 million people, their revenues are the highest in baseball. Unlike, say, football, where television revenues are somewhat more evenly distributed, baseball allows for domination by large single-team markets. Put quite simply, the Yankees are ridiculously wealthy, and they always have been, allowing them to buy and sell any player in the game. This was true even before free agency - they just negotiated with team managers and owners rather than individual players.

Now, it must be noted that after the Yankees, the second-richest team is the Red Sox, so yes, as much as we hate the Yankees, our only excuse is horrible, horrible management and plain bad luck.

lady alexa:

what about my behind?
2001-11-04 11:44:38 PM  
I mean the regular average-joe rat, Rat. :)

Poe Ghostal--Haven't I seen you somewhere before? Like on boards?
2001-11-04 11:45:04 PM  
Lady Alexa -

You have indeed.
2001-11-04 11:45:48 PM  
I concur with Poe. The team reeks of cash-money, and the cyanide-laced-cherry on top is that they're too damned cocky.

The fans, though, are worse than the team... you'd think that THEY won the goddamned World Series, the way they talk.

But this is a great victory for me tonight. Finally, I'm gonna be able to just rub it in their faces. I've never liked the Yankees. I represent Queens, yo, not 'da Bronx.

Mets rock. I care not what you say. I will say this though. While I will never say that the Yankees suck, I will say that I will never, under any circumstances, like them.

That's all
2001-11-04 11:46:04 PM  
Flying bombs, anthrax, second place. It's just not New York's year.
2001-11-04 11:46:22 PM  
Stupid crap-ass baseball interrupting the Simpson's premier.
2001-11-04 11:48:20 PM  
Why is this labelled Cool? There are some of us who are Yankees fans. They still own all the teams in baseball. They'll be right back there next year only with Barry Bonds along for the ride :-D
2001-11-04 11:49:24 PM  
Tinrobot: Not everyone in NYC is crying. Mets fans are unbelievably farking happy.
2001-11-04 11:49:42 PM  
I don't have a problem when the Yankees win, but c'mon, someone else deserved their turn. And the D-backs are new and all...

alexa: thanx for the clarification, oofta

now, touch my monkey, you know you wanna touch the monkey
2001-11-04 11:52:21 PM  
Whoop de farking doo, 2 glass eyes. Nobody "deserves" the championship unless they make it there and win it like everyone else. The yankees did that for three years straight.
2001-11-04 11:53:18 PM  
I think the Mets deserved it in 2k... but that's just my and several thousand other Mets/non-Yankee fans opinion
2001-11-04 11:54:23 PM  

Except we kicked their asses from the Bronx to Queens and back again.
2001-11-04 11:55:13 PM  
Yanks fans saying that they will be back next year after they get Barry Bonds is the exact reason that most other people hate them. And while I do think the yanks will be a contender, I don't think they will go all the way cus they are losing some key players. But i am happy that the D'backs won, always enjoyed watching schilling pitch and I can't stand that pansy ass Clemmens (sp?) The only thing I have going for me is that my phills are not gonna win the world series next year.
2001-11-04 11:55:38 PM  
see, this is exactly what I'm talking about...

EQAddict: which Yankee are you?... Did "we" really kick the Mets asses?

2001-11-04 11:56:37 PM  
It's a figure of speech. Lighten up.
2001-11-04 11:57:11 PM  
it's the reason I don't like Yankee fans :P
2001-11-04 11:58:31 PM  
Pretty much any sports fan will talk like that.
2001-11-04 11:59:47 PM  
SuperPlok = Tsuyoshi Shinjo, in that case... time to go buy crazy orange armbands!

Yeah, the Yankees Suck. They sucked up 3 in a row. D-Backs should enjoy it while they can. Why does the Florida Marlins pop into my mind? I actually liked the D- Backs but they do have some UGLY farkers on that team. Jetyer is the classiest player in the game.
2001-11-05 12:02:31 AM  
I think it might be more appropriate to our ::giggle:: Yankee fan friends if we just say... The D-Backs win.

2001-11-05 12:03:30 AM  
2001-11-05 12:05:08 AM  
Randy Johnson, ugly? naww... he's DEAD SEXY. Mmm, cancer-looking-face.

2001-11-05 12:08:14 AM  
good game, glad the d-backs won, but did anyone see the end of the saints game?!?!? kyle turley was thrown out of the game for unsportsmanlike conduct for throwinig an opponents helmet across the field. it was crazy. you would have to see it to believe it.

sceeva ~saints fan, and dont know why~
2001-11-05 12:13:03 AM  


theres no such thing as a dbacks fan, just red sox and cub fans biatching in their offseason.

2001-11-05 12:15:53 AM  
heres the link:,2405,NFL_20011104_NYJ@NO,00.htm

and a quote

Quarterback Aaron Brooks ran for a yard, and Damien Robinson grabbed Brooks' face mask, twisting it as he pulled him to the ground as an official's flag flew.

Saints tackle Kyle Turley immediately jumped on Robinson, starting a shoving match that involved both teams and an official. Turley emerged from the pile without a helmet and carrying a Jets helmet that he threw downfield.

He also made an obscene gesture and Turley was ejected. The Saints were penalized 15 yards, back to the 20. Brooks threw two incompletions and was sacked by John Abraham on their final offensive play.
2001-11-05 12:20:07 AM  
with all these comments that consist soley of "yankees suck," i am now convinced that a majority farkers are idiots. how can a team that won three consecutive titles suck?
2001-11-05 12:30:21 AM  
yankees blow
2001-11-05 12:46:41 AM  
Beer baron

What in the hell are you talking about. First off yeah im a yankees fan, and yes if your rich why not pay your players.

But dont say fark the yankees, cuz they have money.
I think i saw a couple of the most highly paid pitchers in baseball on the mound tonight for the same team. So Good game to the dbacks, but lets not get too pissed off over money grubbing bastard owners, because in my book dbacks are right up there in the running.
2001-11-05 12:46:49 AM  
It's time for fark jeopardy.

Answer: Mariano Rivera and The World Trade Center

Question: What are two New York icons that crumble under pressure?
2001-11-05 12:55:32 AM  
Nietsche - Come on. There's only one explaination. It's obviously because God is dead. We've killed him. Black is now white. Light is now dark. Up is now down. So get your lantern out.
2001-11-05 01:07:24 AM  
Me is Mongo: You can make fun of Rivera but making fun of all those people that died for no reason is farked up.
