It is a major concern, however, about the lack of empathy that Yankee fans have for fans of other teams (namely the Mets and Red Sox). They would rather rub it in our faces than enjoy their good fortune with grace and class. It's unfortunate and pathetic.
I liked your post for the most part but this paragraph baffles me. The Mets and the Red Sox are the Yankees most hated rivals. Why would there be empathy? Really I am being serious. The Red Sox came within one run or one ounce of Grady little common sense of beathing the Yankees. They will get no empathy from me.
I was 16 in 1986...and my Met fan friends showed me nothing but grief.
