Yankees – Who are they really?

So there is a couple of days before the Yankees and the Phillies go at it to find out who is the best of the best.

-There are people out there saying the Yankees have this already, simply because the have already paid for it.-

Actually they paid a lot of money for (alledged) talented players and a new ballpark, if anyone can show me the receipt for the 2009 WorldSeries then I will gladly accept that this years World Searies is not worth playing, until then I am going to cheer for the Phillies in the hope that they can repeat last years magic.

– There are also those that would believe that since the Yankees have the best record they will make the Phillies look like ‘Little Leaguers’ –

I could probably come up with a long list of reasons why this is ‘BS’, but I thought why not borrow some interns and investigate. Some people weren’t in the lending mood since there teams either didn’t make the post season or got knocked out, so I had to make a quick trip to New York and find some strangers to do my investigating.

Criteria for the investigators was, 1 Yankee fan and 1 not a Yankee fan, I am sure you can guess which is which…


…for some unknown reason the Yankee fan wasn’t very forthcoming with information about the team itself, all she would say was she’s not allowed to talk about them, but she did explain that Yankee fans do love all other fans regardless of who they support…


…word of warning when in Philadelphia don’t do this!

The Yankee fan also explained that Yankee fans believe the NY logo to be sacred and have been known to kiss it at odd moments…


I probably know a few Phillie fans that would kiss that NY logo too.

The non-Yankee fan, was very surprised by the amount of money to be had from Yankee fans and advised the only bad thing that she found out actually was from a Red Sox fan or was it a Yankee fan in a Red Sox shirt…


could be either I guess.

I was a little dissapointed that I didn’t get any really information about the real Yankees, but I guess what was I to expect being in New York, I did however find that those smiling were Yankee fans, those crying were Mets fans.

Okay, so I didn’t really go to New York today, but I needed something to fill the gap between now and Wednesday…


There was no intent to mame or harm any Yankee fan in the making of this post, if I did mame or harm a Yankee fan, I got to know what the hell were you doing while reading this? This is not to say that maybe I insulted or offended a Yankee fan, I am sure none of this is anywhere near as offensive or insulting as the price that World Series tickets will sell for at either stadium.
