13. and your point is?
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 09:15 AM by stoptheinsandity
money sure can buy happiness in professional sports :) I was at the cask and flagon last night right behind fenway watching the A's get smacked down like the whining little children they are, and Billy Beane's comment after the game only served to further that opinion in the minds of anyone not from Oakland. Go Sox!!!!!!!!!!!!

on edit: and btw, Steinbrenner can go to hell :)

Billy's a moron
I really dont understand the infatuation with the man. He has a history, and so do his players, of doing incredibly stupid things that kill the team.

16. Well....Since there are no "clueless and delusional Red Sox fans"
who the f*** are you talking to? I'd say the description is more apt for Yankees fans who think they are going to win it every year.

20. Pretty dry run there from 1979 to 1995
And poor Dave Mattingly, Seattle limited his playoff appearances to one heart breaking series his last pro season.

26. Sox fans are happy... so what?

It is just a freakin' game. I love baseball and watching but my god people get so silly over this crap.

24. Probably confused with Dave Winfield- (another great hitter)
apologies to Don. BTW I was never happier than when the Blue Jays won the 1992 series- thanks in part to ex-Yank Winfield.

25. sheesh
I can't even read this thread - there are deleted messages all over.

Lately, it's been really sad to see sports fans so blinded by their fandom....on a liberal board where people should really know better.

Chomsky was right about fandom = nationalism.

Good-natured rivalry is one thing, but when it turns to prejudice and ignorance, maybe you should check out the freeper board instead.

29. one last comment on my part.............

since you like to place blame on others without having your facts straight.........all the trash talk that has been flying around the board.....began shortly after the Yankees lost Game 1 of their series against the Twins....immediately afterwards the board was FLOODED with red sox fans talking all kinds of trash about the Yankees and it went on and on......so I decided to respond to all of their trash talk in the same spirit in which they expressed theirs.......but typical of red sox fans who love to dish it out but when it's thrown right back at their faces they begin to cry and complain.... so messages are now being deleted and a muzzle is being placed on all the trash talking( from both sides, I think) .... and it's probably for the best.....so i'm not going to bother with any of the Yankees-Red Sox threads anymore.....

31. That's funny, because most Red Sox fans on this board are civilized
The title of your thread brought down the tone of the rivalry by personally attacking a whole group of people. Substitute an ethnic slur for Red Sox fan and it reveals the depth of hatred you have exhibited all over DU. Very sad.

Somehow, I doubt it.

Just remember, you're the one who started this flamebait thread.

Gee, talk about sore winners...
