No more “Yankees Suck” chants

King Ing July 24, 2008 2

What would a Yankees-Red Sox game at Fenway Park be without a “Yankees Suck” chant? If Kevin Cullen of the Boston Globe had his way, we would find out.

“I respect the Yankees, and I’ve taught my sons to do so, too. They are 14 and 11, love baseball, and know that Derek Jeter plays the game as well and as hard as anyone has. If I were picking sides in the schoolyard, Jeter is the guy I’d pick first…So when you say the Yankees suck, you’re saying Derek Jeter sucks, which is preposterous.”

Now as a Red Sox fan I don’t really know how to feel about it. I don’t chant during games. The greatest length I go to is to wear a foam finger. Chicks dig the foam finger! But it has become so commonplace to be in Boston and hear that phrase. At a Celtics game…Yankees suck. At a Bruins game…Yankees suck. At a Patriots game…Yankees suck. What am I thinking? YANKEES SUCK! Josh Beckett v Joba Chamberlin tomorrow night. Let the fun begin.

    You just jinxed the Sox. Now the yanks are going to sweep them this weekend and take the lead in the AL east and hold it through Sept.
