Called the boys at school to see if they get the YES network. Today was great, and I am not even a avid Yankee Fan. Pay back to Belichicken and all those obnoxious losers living up North. They must be jumping off rooftops.

Two Super Bowl victories in the last three years in the best game going?
Yea, this move by the Yankees really "ruined" these victories for die-hard Pats fans.
MLB is as exciting as NASCAR. [/b][/quote]
But not as exciting as watching Pats fans burn s**t in celebration!
You don't live in New England, let alone Boston. I know these people. Believe me when I say that the A-Rod deal really bothers them. They have almost forgotten about the super bowl already. I went to Boston last summer and those scamps still talk about wanting to kill Bill Buckner.
Couple things people: If the Yankees don't win 120 games, win their division by atleast 15 games, and don't win the world series, (barring injury to like 3 of their all-stars) we as fans might witness the biggest failure in professional sports history. Especially if the latter doesn't happen. No excuses this year!
The other thing is if you root for a team that is in another city and you have no idea what that other city is all about, then don't make comments as if you know what the hell is going on. The Red Sox are a much bigger draw, attention grabber, and mean more to the vast majority of the people of Boston. Maybe if the Patriots were in a city like Boston then it would be different, but since the people in Maine can technically root for the "New England" Patriots it doesn't.
I've got a couple of buddies who live in Waltham and Boston. They are big time Sox fans. They are crying bitterly in their beer right now. This A-Rod trade hurts them big time. Yanks closed the deal, while the Sox blew their chance over $12 million.
After paying many hundreds of millions for the team, $12 million should never stand in your way. But, it appears that it did.
