Sticks and stones...
It's easy being forgiving when it's so unbelievably pleasant outside...
(btw - I share your opinions about those folks who live down south - the southerners - you know - LA.)
Also - to set the record straight... I don't hate Yankee fans - they're the most knowledgable baseball fans on the planet - it's the "Yankees" that I hate. Why?
Looking way back, throughout most of the last century, a small market team, through many aches and pains and luck and sweat, finally puts together a really good team - the local fans are ecstatic - then the Yankee owner du jour throws a small fortune into the pot and buys some really good players, quashing the hopes of the newly energized young baseball fans.
BUT - that's baseball - that's part of the appeal of the game, 'cause when we DO beat the Yankees, it FEELS so good!
Maybe I should root for the Yomiuri Giants or Manchester United?
