Sleeping with the Enemy?

Via the witty and erudite west coast blog "Diary of a Dilettante"’, we read in a missive from their fashion correspondent (someone named "Ivy Pinkerton") that many male Yankees fans are rejecting their own kind and expressing their animal attraction to the female rooters of their arch-rivals.  Could this be the manifestation of deep-seated self-loathing?  Something Oedipal?  A cry for help?  Or nothing but simple good taste?  All we know is our own experience. Sox fans make better lovers.

  • The woman I live with is from Detroit, and a die-hard Pistons and Tigers fan. It has been a rough week.

  • hey, let’s face it: Sox fans have got a romantic, self-destructive streak that brings to mind people like James Dean and Marilyn Monroe.
    How’s that for self-serving? :P

  • What kind of “Sox fans” are these women? Granted, the players on the Yankees are rich and famous blah blah, but if they’re such “fans” they would hate the players on the Yanks base on allegiance alone. Kind of reminds me of the way about 30950509 Sox hats showed up at UConn in the fall of 2004. Same goes double for the Patriots. You silly Mass-a-chew-setters.
    Also, on an aside, if any Sox player wanted to engage in sexual congress with me, I would surely oblige. And yes, I am male.

  • Hey, my wife is a Sox fan. As are many of my friends.
    I think it’s a function of CT sports fans… we don’t have our own teams, so we gravitate to either Boston or NY, and have to co-exist with fans of the other side. So you learn to deal with it.
