Mark Starr of Newsweek posted this last week, but I think it's no less relevant today. In the aftermath of September 11, there was an outpouring of support for New York and New Yorkers in general, extending so far as to see Boston Red Sox fans serenade their arch-rivals with "New York, New York" at a ballgame in late September. Well, it's time to set the record straight, and Starr does a good job of that. Speaking as a loyal Boston fan, I don't love New York, and I never will. I don't like the town, I don't particularly like the people, and I sure as hell don't like the Yankees. Bad enough Oakland rolled over for New York in the division series, Seattle now needs to pull themselves together and end this abysmal dynasty. New Yorkers don't need pity, nor false tears--my sympathies went out to the victims of the attacks, and still do, and I confess I was impressed by how New Yorkers rallied around each other at such a difficult time. But now it's time to try and get back to normal, and in Boston there's nothing more normal than that hallowed chant: Yankees suck!
