I'm falling in love with my camera and taking photos everywhere I go. That, combined with my passions for politics, sports, religion and other things we all agree on, makes this blog persist.

Why Do Yankees Fans Hate the Red Sox?

I asked a good friend of mine a simple question, why do Yankees fans hate the Red Sox? I've only seen the topic covered once, with no great conclusion.

It's easy to see why Boston fans, or any other teams', don't like them.

Other than this, have the Red Sox ever done anyting worthy of picking them out? If you're a Yankee fan out there, please explain it to me.

It seems to me, until a few days ago, the Yankees had the upper hand.

They were the last team in MLB to intergrate. They passed on signing Willie Mays and Jackie Robinson.

F*ck em

If you read a book on the history of the Yankees, there's a lot dedicated to big on-field battles with the Brooklyn Dodgers, the L.A. Dodgers, the Cardinals, the Royals, the Giants, the Braves, the Mariners, the A's, etc. There is hardly as much dedicated to the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are the ones clinging to the Yanks. Who cared about the Red Sox from 1996-2002, when New York was more interested in battling the Indians, Mariners, Rangers, Orioles and A's for AL supremacy? Yanks fans give Boston attention because it's human nature to respond to someone who is so vicious and jealous toward you, and because we can't get rid of them.

Hey Paul,why don't you just forget about those nothing Red Sox and follow the Yankees for the rest of the season.

Paul, that's the way it should be. But I can't tell you how many Yankees fans have told me they'd rather lose to any other team (save the Mets) than the Red Sox.

Being that the Yankees have owned them since 1918, it never made sense. But as a football fan dealing with Patriots fans all the time, I can see how New England-fans passion can get irritating.
