The worst part is that all these assholes that move to NYC after college from parts of the country that have shitty baseball teams (i.e., most parts of the country) end up becoming Yankees fans after 2 or 3 years because they've never rooted for a team that actually wins games.
i.e., someone I know, diehard Mariners fan (and mariners fans HATE the yankees)...now a yankees fan after 3 years there.
Agreed. And the most pathetic defense -- even something with which they attack my allegiance to the New England sports teams I grew up with despite living in in NY? "Well, we're/you're in New York now." A MFY fan from New Jersey in a Red Sox bar
(Professor Thom's) made that remark.
Of course, by rights and based on his flawed logic, he should have been rooting solely for the Newark Bears, NJ Generals, and Garden State Rollergirls.
