Taking The Red Sox/Yankees Rivalry Too Far
Yes, I know the Yankees and the Red Sox don’t like each other. Big surprise there. But for God’s sake, is this even necessary?
A group of men — some with Irish accents — beat up a 23-year-old Cambridge man and sent him to the hospital after they spotted him sporting a Yankees baseball cap.
I bet the Sawx fans felt wicked strong after jumping a solo Yankees fan. Nothing says “I’m a fan” or “I’m a complete moron who contributes absolutely nothing to society. In fact, I’m stealing your air.” quite like gang-jumping a fan of an opposing team.
Congratulations guys, you are now the equivalent of those Penn State jerks who harassed Ohio State fans for having the audacity to walk through the Happy Valley campus.
What’s the matter folks? You can’t be a tough guy without having a group of people at your back? You know, I’m by no means a Yankees fans, but if this is how Boston fans are going to act, maybe we should go back to a time when their franchise was a collection of perennial choke artists. Actions like these mean you don’t deserve a winner.
H/T to the Sports Frog for pointing this out.
