Yankees = US
Red Sox Nation = Iraq.

Damn! Lotsa baseball linky-links today.

Uninteresting concept. Couldn't get past second sentence.
2004-02-19 12:22:38 AM  
Yankees = Microsoft, McDonalds
Red Sox = Oracle, Boston Market

The difference is subtle, and not all that significant, but still there

Yankees = Nazi Germany
Boston = France

I'm just failing to see the humor here. Somebody tell me I'm an idiot so I can go on about my business.

When Bush called Hussein evil I didn't believe him, but when I see Steinbrenner I just know that he is the antichrist. How can the yankees be American if they are ruining the American past time?!?!

Rotation for Rotation the Sox own the Empire and thats what counts in the playoffs

Yankees=Empire from Star Wars
Red Sox=Battlestar Galactica

> Rotation for Rotation the Sox own the Empire and thats what counts in the playoffs

You could trade the complete Red Sox/Yankees roster for each other, and the yankees would still win. It's fate.

Accept this and be at peace.

Old school Battlestar of course, with those cool chrome cylons.
...and Lorne Greene.

it's time to lay this red sox thing to rest, kids. The season hasn't even started yet; they haven't even finished second to the yankees yet.

Yankees = Will fire Joe Torres when their $200 mil team is 6 games out of first place by the All -Star break.

Red Sox = Cowboy Up 2: Electric Boogaloo !

What will the Yanks be able to do when they don't win the World Series this year ?

Did you know that Babe Ruth was in reality, a 3'1" midget, who cleaned up at the plate only because of his 5" strike zone? It's true! He was dimensionally challenged! He just looked normal in photos thanks to the creative use of carnival mirrors! Look.... would I lie to...

2004-02-19 12:44:07 AM  
Even Toronto has better pitching then the Yanks. That is what wins. The Sox had a record setting lineup last year too and look where it got them. So get off your high horses, Yankee fans. Theres a lot of games to play and your team could end up in first, or in third.

The Cherokee Nation will return!

I'm no fan of "The Boss", but oh how I loved his reply to Henry's whiny demand for a salary cap. Not that I don't think that a salary cap would be good for the game, only that Henry is one of the last people with any right to whine about it. And Bud Selig, what a wuss, saying that this trade was bad for baseball, yet doing nothing to oppose it. Baseball needs a new Commissioner, preferably one with an actual spine.

/Go Astros in '04!

Some of Steinbrenner's reply:

"We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston. It is understandable, but wrong that he would try to deflect the accountability for his mistakes on to others and to a system for which he voted in favor. It is time to get on with life and forget the sour grapes."

That said, it sure would be hilarious if the Yanks come up short again.

Though I find the war of words entertaining between Henry and Steinbrenner, enough already. April can't come soon enough.
2004-02-19 02:21:33 AM  
Epstein lashed out against Steinbrenner for what he called "crimes against humanity." He also called the Yankees owner "a big piece of shiat."

Fark the Yankees and the New World Order.
2004-02-19 03:39:12 AM  
didn't read the article, but the tasteless graphic of people fleeing lower manhattan looks nothing like Boston. Pedestrians here don't use the sidewalks on good days, let alone a disaster.

The Boston Herald sportswriters conceded the season before it even started.

Gammons also added that surveillance by ESPN's Harold Reynolds has uncovered several cells that serve as training grounds for the Yankees organization. These militant groups, identified only by the letters, A, AA or AAA depending upon their skills and experience, will be called upon in battle should any of the Yankees become wounded.

Now that was pretty funny.
2004-02-19 08:53:36 AM  
Correct me if I'm worng, but aren't the Red Sox paying Manny Ramirez $4-5 million and Pedro Martinez $1-2 million more than the Yankees are paying AROD?

mastaofmurda, would that be the very antithesis of "suck"?

Never heard of this site before. Now I know why. Main page as painfully unfunny as article.

Southerner named "Cletus" = teh funay!!!111

Aren't there like 28 other teams in baseball? Is it guaranteed to come down to the Red Sox - Yankees? Where am I? Go Twins.

Also, could be that was the humor of the NASCAR article - i.e. the whole white trash angle. Some pretty decent stuff in past articles - good ones on ND football and another on Saddam.
