We might be a couple of days late noticing this story, but it’s good to see that Theo Epstein is not taking advantage of his standing as New England icon by carousing with girls half his age. We leave that to former Yankee outfielders.
For shame, SF, to smear the good name of R[oberto] Kelly, erstwhile Yankee hero. And on this day of international baseball goodwill. For shame.
Despite your fishing in another thread, SF, I almost always find YF’s humor funnier than yours, because it doesn’t usually involve ridiculing another team.
Soxaholix is funny for everyone when it’s funny about the Red Sox. But when he get’s into his MFY hating, he’s usually only funny for Sox Fanatics.
Actually, SF, I take it back. That was a dumb comment by me.
Do what you want, it’s your blog.
I just want to talk about the Yankees, a great bunch of talented guys, start the season, and root them on. I don’t hate the Sox, or Sox fans, but sometimes get annoyed by the pugnaciousness. So what?
The most obnoxious about the Yanks in 2004 were Damon and Ortiz (an ugly mofo). Well, they won and now one of them’s a Yankee. I look forward to seeing how it all plays out.
I like YanksFanSoxFan because people do actually talk about baseball here.
John, there’s nothing not funny about an R. Kelly reference. Seriously, have you seen “Trapped in the Closet”? It’s classic.
That he has the same name (pretty much) as a former Yankee just made it all that much more a propos for the site, but it has nothing at all to do with Yankee-hating. This site has always had an element of humor to it, it’s part of our sensibility. If you can’t find the good naturedness in a Theo Epstein/R. Kelly post then I am not sure you’ll ever think anything I post is funny. That’s your sensibility and that’s ok, but it’s not going to keep me from finding the humor in a sport that many of us often take far too seriously (myself included).
