The new axis of evil
I refer, of course, to the New York Yankees and trademark lawyers.
ESPN.com's Darren Rovell has an amusing story about one lone financial planner's fight to the death against these forces of evil:
Mike Moorby hates the Yankees. And except for the fact that they haven't won the World Series for five straight seasons (Moorby loves that about them), the Yankees keep giving him reasons to hate them.I think I might just have to order myself a hat. posted by Dan on 03.23.06 at 04:45 PM
Why is there so much loathing of the Yankees , EVEN NOW?? After beating your most hated rival in the best possible way - after making your enemy go through the WORST POSSIBLE WAY TO lose a 7 game series, what more do you want? How much more of this hatred is going to be passed on to future generations of New Englanders?
I am a Yankees fan who came to the US six years back as a student to the State Univ of NY at Buffalo- The(Subway)World Series was going on at that time - i picked up the game from then on and almost immediately came to know of Babe Ruth and all the history between the two teams. I am from India and i KNOW what a game against your most hated rival (pakistan) can mean. We fought four wars between us and as any one can see there's no love lost between us. But at the very least, we are people from two Different countries.
What i was amazed by and still continue to be amazed by is how a baseball game between two teams from the SAME country can evoke so much passion, loathing and hatred between fans of the two sides ?
And what do you think abt Johnny Damon? I would love to hear from a free market supporter like you who would see nothing wrong in a person going to work for an employer who pays more as opposed to being a loyal fan of the Sox who now HATES Damon. Which of the two are you?
Some one from Harvard/MIT should conduct a study to look into this rivalry and how it can evoke such strong feelings. but then again this study may be biased :-) May be CalTech/Stanford should do this - oh wait a minute, Dodgers Hate us too.
Go Yanks!! Beat those Boston Red Suckkkks ;-)posted by: Nagarajan Sivakumar on 03.23.06 at 04:45 PM [permalink]
