Classy Yanks

First Joe & Co. watch the Sox little ceremony from the top step, and now they’re letting them win the game. That’s sportsmanship for you. Makes us feel all warm and gooey inside. Just don’t get used to it.

Freebies end today!

  • “We let them win”. The last cry of a broken man. We love it.

  • Sheesh, one win and these Sox fans think they are the Yankees. I remind Sox fan that his team still has a worse World Series record than teams that didn’t even exist in 1990, and that the Sox only got the WS because of the wild card rule. So basically, baseball had to change the rules for you to win.

  • Sox fans will NEVER think we are the Yankees – yuck. That kind of arrogance belongs solely to NYC. We are the SOX, and it is now our time. Live in the past if you want to, but your dynasty has ended. And it has nothing to do with the pathetic start either of our teams has made this season. Time will tell.

  • Joe:
    Who cares about the points you make – historical records, teams born in 1990, etc? I don’t. All I care about right now is that yesterday a dream came true – my parents and I got to go to see championship rings awarded to the Red Sox, I got to go home and see the game, and this morning watch all the emotional happenings on NESN’s recap. It’s total gravy that they did it in front of the Yankees (who were classy, particularly Mariano Rivera during his standing ovation), but really it wouldn’t have mattered if it was the Devil Rays or the Blue Jays or the Yankees. Why are you guys so hung up on 26-6 (or, as Yankees fans continually screw up, 26-1)? It’s a lame comeback, to fall back on all those pennants. When Andre Dawson won an MVP with the Cubs, did all the rival Cardinals fans start chanting “Stan Musial, Stan Musial”? When the Celtics lost to the Lakers did we start crowing about all those titles that Bill Russell won? Nope – the Celtics and their fans just had that much more incentive to see a championship the next season.

  • It is not that you won’t think it we all know Sox fans have pinstripe envy. It is that you have come to the realization that you could never be like the Yankees.
    It is not arrogance if you can back it up. Unlike the Idiot’s the Yankees can back it up with the past and the futuer. As far as living in the past that is all the Idiot’s have been doing. The Dynasty will never end believe it.

  • It’s time for Sox fans to grow up and realize they’re now in the club.
    As Joe Paterno once said to his player celebrating in the end zone, “act like you’ve been there before.”
    And did you see the gem Ted Lilly pitched against the Sox this weekend? We should have kept him.

  • Yes, Jason, that’s right, we should act like we’ve been there before. How quickly you forget what you’ve been spending the last decade reminding us, that we haven’t been there before. How convenient for you.
    And unfortunately for Yankees fans, right now most of them are acting as if nobody else has any right to be there at all. It’s a much sadder performance, seeing the beligerent, condescending, and egotistical Yankees fans peacock in defeat than watching us Sox fans celebrate something new, 86 years in waiting. Nothing about yesterday’s celebration was arrogant or without class. The ceremony yesterday lacked the pomp and circumstance so familiar to people here in New York. It’s (relative) modesty was just right.

    Well then….why didnt the Yankees just win ONE game last year. One game. Thats all.

  • But I will say that the Yankees showed a whole lotta class yesterday. I was glad the fans at Fenway Cheered Torre. And I thought the 60 second standing ovation for Rivera was the funniest thing ive seen in a while. But I thought Wakefeild pitched one heck of a game yesterday. It will be intresting for Shilling tomorow I think. Take care everyone.
