Maestro1701: Yankees fans can crow about 27 World Series victories all they want...all a Boston fan has to say is "2004" and the tonal shift in the conversation is staggering...


It's amazing so many people think that 2004 is something special. With both teams being evenly matched and every game basically a coin flip, the odds of winning 4 in a row are an "astronomical" 1 in 16. And please don't give me the "it's never been done in history!!!" BS, because statistically speaking, the history of playoffs isn't really that long, small sample size and all that.

Big deal. You beat us once in the playoffs. Congrats. Now try not to chant "Yankees suck!" at every single home game. All it proves is that the Yankees are forever ingrained into your psyche. With good reason.

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.

Because, as we all know, 9/11/01 marked the end of Yankee-hatred by Bostonians.

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.

Clearly Publikwerks is just trying way too hard.  I see now why I have Killer Cars and Gunny Highway marked as cool Boston people.

Yes, we all know how safe division leads are when Boston is in the lead.

The Red Sox?  I'm largely indifferent to them.  Their fans?  Well let's put it this way, their fans chant "Yankees Suck" at games between the Red Sox and the Royals.  They chant "Yankees Suck" at Bruins games. The Yankees are their world.  Sad, really.

SirEattonHogg: All I need to do to dislike the Red Sox is just watch the Ken Burns Baseball series again and listen to all the fanatical fan BS devoted to the Red Sox on that show.  Bleah, it's a like a frigging religion.


You'd think nothing bad ever happened to Doris Kearns Goodwin except for the the 1967, 75 and 86 World Series.  Red Sox fan martyrdom syndrome at its finest.

Sure, I have sympathy for the city.  Why should that translate into any liking of the Red Sox?  Give me a break.

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.

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