Probably?!

Just wait till May 31st about the 2nd inning. I'm sure there will be some feel good bs before the first pitch....

Second thought maybe it would last till the 2nd inning.
 
2013-04-25 11:53:58 AM
Yes, but at least Boston and New York fans will always have "hating the Jets" in common.

Ok, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here, two down, nobody on, no score....

I can hate the team and still be largely indifferent about the city.
 
2013-04-25 12:13:49 PM
Never stopped hating the Sox.

Yeah, Yankees fans aren't known for being good sports.

Well that's because they're used to winning.  When the Red Sox win, the cops accidentally kill someone.

Hell, I'm a Sox fan but I never got the sense it was an equal "hatred" between the two camps. On the Yankees side, I figured they viewed us as more a mild annoyance than anything else.

When we actually won more things instead of losing them, maybe they took more notice.
 
2013-04-25 01:45:46 PM
Short answer: yes.

Longer answer: Yes, and I never stopped.

My sympathy for the victims of the bombing and the people of Boston is very real, however I'm not going to participate in the incredibly hollow gesture of pretending not to hate the Red Sox.
 
2013-04-25 01:47:29 PM
The rivalry and "hatred" is part of the fun.  That's baseball, Suzyn

I won't minimize the hatred between the teams, I want the Red Sox to lose every single day.
 
2013-04-25 01:48:50 PM
As a Red Sox fan from years and years, all I have to say is this:

Bring it, Yanks.
 
2013-04-25 01:49:32 PM
I got this.  I hate them both enough for everyone.
 
2013-04-25 01:49:36 PM
Because, as we all know, 9/11/01 marked the end of Yankee-hatred by Bostonians.

Yanks_RSJ: I won't minimize the hatred between the teams, I want the Red Sox to lose every single day.


Oh, fair enough.

I based my earlier comment from the only time I attended a Yankees game (this was pre-2004 and I just started college); just happened to be in NYC and had nothing better to do than show up for a game between the Yanks and...the Royals or some other f*cking team. My friends and I wore our Sox caps mildly hoping for 9 innings of sh*t talk in the stands, but, outside of a few derogatory cat calls, the fan reaction to us was largely "aww, that's so cute, look! Sox fans!".
 
2013-04-25 01:54:25 PM
Well seeing as how it was the marathon that was bombed and not a baseball,football, hockey, basketball I can saftly say we can go on hating the Red Socks, Patriots, Bruins and Celtics with the fire of a 1000 suns. Hell at the Bruins/Flyers game last week there was a fight on the ice and they were wearing ribbon patches for Boston. Lotta love on that ice.

Don't know if I could room with a Yankees fan; it was hard enough with a Canadiens fan...
 
2013-04-25 01:59:57 PM
The hate only really comes out when both teams are good.  So, a little later this year, if the Sox keep it up  and the Yanks get healthy again and stay up there in the standings, the answer is beanball.  And I will watch closely for the first person who tries to fight Youkilis.

Pep Streebeck: [media.ebaumsworld.com image 550x401]


As I Sox fan I never really truly got into the "Yankees Suck" thing but that made me LOL.

CSB.  I was taking the ferry back from Long Island one fall during a Sox-Yankees playoffs.  While I was queued up in line a guy with a walkie talkie comes up to my car. I roll my window down.  He looks at my MA plates and asks, "Yankees fan or Red Sox fan?"  I just laughed.  He gets on the walkie talkie and says "Red Sox fan coming through".  No worries, the Sox were down 3 games by that point.  I am sure if I made the trip a week later my car would have accidentally to the bottom of Long Island Sound.  Yeah it was 2004.

Yeah, 2003 and 2004 turned it up a notch.  The dynamic obviously changed so the "hatred" became a lot less one-sided.
 
2013-04-25 02:06:03 PM
*yawn*

Yankees suck.  Red Sox can suck it too.  Go Orioles.
 
2013-04-25 02:07:08 PM
I've gotten tired of the rivalry anyway. Since the payrolls are converging in size, Bostonians can no longer decry the vast sums that the Yankees spend. They can bemoan the loss of certain players over the years (I winced seeing Clemens or Damon in pinstripes, but I'm over it)... but the real reason the rivalry has lost its luster is the lack of HATRED between the players. The brawls that still occur on rare occasions are short-lived and are followed by a slew of apologies. Plus there are always players that DON'T participate in brawls, even when others have left the bench in a 'roid-fueled berserker rage.

I want a team that still has that one-for-all, all-on-one ready-to-rumble ethos not unlike that of a biker gang on meth.  Perennial underdogs with massive chips on both shoulders. Hockey players in drag, so to speak. That's the stuff that rivalries are made of.

Youk's gonna grab a steel chair, and then smash ....Jeter with it. Then he'll tear of his Yankee Jersey, have a Red Sox Jersey underneath, and instantly be traded back to the Sox.

//That's how it works.

Nope. NY will hate them even more now for stealing away their victim status. New Yorkers are secretly praying for something to happen so they can get their pity party back in swing.

Pretty much.  2004 might have changed that, but then the last couple years haven't been kind to the Sox.

//though they're good again this year... let's see how long that lasts.

Mateorocks: Actually, I learned how to hate "Sweet Caroline" over the past week. I was indifferent before, but now...


Funny, the other night in the Flyers Bruins game, in Philly, they started playing Sweet Caroline as the ref was about to drop the puck during a random commercial intermission.  As they came out of break, the ref and players stood there while the song played, then realized it was taking too long and was just ridiculous and the ref dropped the puck while the song was still playing.  The whole thing was awkward.
And that was the only thing funny about that stupid game.

60% of the fans are just fans, 20% don't care its a night out in town - 20% are jerk offs who played little league ball and believe they know everything about baseball (or their team).
I've been a life long Yankee fan, I've met the goods, bads of every team - ESPN over plays the rivalry, in hindsight i've only met a handful of jerkoff Red sox fans. The same ones gloat "remember that year we were down 3 games??" or my favorite "We won 6 in a row against you".

In perspective, those band of 20% idiots, are simply that - I've met my share of yankee douches and sox. The more you pay attention to them, the more you feed their little egos.

I've been to only 15 or so different stadiums in my time, I wish I had more money to see others - one thing is in common - people love baseball - if you seek out the right fans they treat you as just a fans, just learn the basic rules of not being a douche bag in public and you go unnoticed.

2013-04-25 02:34:55 PM
I'm a Yankees fan, and my days of hating the Sox have passed. Until they reload with a bunch of Schilling-esque or Papelbonian jerks, I'll just hope we win slightly more than them to keep it fun.
 
2013-04-25 02:37:26 PM
If the Yankees and Red Sox don't hate each other, the terrorists have won.

We still hate the Sox.  That doesn't mean we can't sympathize with Boston for the tragedy that occurred there, but we never stopped hating them.

It's idiotic to even be asking this stupid question.  What happened in Boston was terrible.  It also had fark-all to do with any Boston sports teams, and in my view you trivialize it by putting those sports teams at the center of the discussion.
