Heading down to Shea in a few moments, but I wanted to give you something to chew on until I get there. Why do you hate the Yankees? And, is there one moment or personality that clicks with you to underscore your feelings?
Because they’re the Yankees.
I’m still a kid in school (in Flushing nonetheless) and the Yankee fans are always “beating up” on the poor Mets fans when the Mets don’t do well. Every time the Yankees start the season in the cellar and I just start to get some good insults going, the Yankees climb back up and the Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran third strike jokes come back. I mean seriously it’s rediculous. And the problem is that the Yankees always win. Urrrg! They have twice the payroll of the Mets, half the team is on ‘roids and the Mets are always stuck on the other side. The Mets are the best team in New York and I want them to kick the Yankees while they’re down, I don’t want the Yankees to climb up again from the depths, no, I want the Yankees swept!
Wow, that let out a lot of anger.
Forgot to say that even when the Mets are winning and clearly dominating New York, they still are relegated to a small line on the front page of the Times even when they win and a small line in the Daily News, even though they’re supposed to be the Mets’ paper. Man. I hope that the writers who look at no one besides the Yankees and their opponents finally realize the Mets exist this weekend when the Yankees play them.
i hate the yankees.
i hate that they are the root cause why i have lived my entire live with an inferiority complex.
Something that Roger Angell wrote in the early Ã‚Â´60s:
Ã‚Â¨I remember sitting there at the Polo Grounds, and there was a guy sitting near me in the stands blowing this mournful horn. TWUUUHH-TRUUUHP. And I wrote that there is more Met than Yankee in all of us, because losing is much more common than winning. When I heard that horn blowing I realized that horn was blowing for me.Ã‚Â¨
As a Yankee fan, there are some well thought points presented here. In fact, its probably the Mets time. Hell I’d rather see them win then the Redsox.
But to Mike V (transplanted fan), you got to put Mattingly right there with Hernandez. I dont think thats a run away at all.
I think the teams split the next 6 games. Chirp all you want. Omars done a great job, the Mets have great young players (especially Reyes), and yes maybe the Yankees are old and decaying.
From a fan from the Dick Howser days, I can’t wait for all the bandwagon Yankee fans to run to the Mets ship (just like in the 80’s). The Yankees will be back, if not this year soon enough – we are spoiled and need these tough times.
I have no hatred for the Mets – dont like them dont hate them.
plain and simple. All you Mets fans are still pissed about the World Series when your team didn’t even show up. And i’m a mets fan. But i’m calling it how i see it.
Dana Brand – Wow!!! and Ditto!!!
I lurk on this blog and I really don’t understand why Met fans are so bitter. It’s like you guys have an inferiority complex or something. The Subway Series games always mean more to the Mets because that is all the Mets and their fans care about: being better than the Yankees. When the Mets lost the NLCS last year all I heard was ‘WELL AT LEAST WE MADE IT FURTHER THAN THE YANKEES’. Who cares? You guys still lost.
Personally? The Mets are just another team to me. It’s ironic how the Met fans always complained about the Yankees spending big bucks and trading away prospects though when they went out and signed Pedro, Beltran, Wagner and then traded prospects for Green and Delgado.
Their obnoxious, arrogant manager and captain. What entitlement they think they have.
You want to know why just read the putz above xryanx. That’s why. Its the arrogant yankee fans who think they are baseball royalty and refuse to allow anyone else to share the spotlight. This is when Yankee fans get real vicious, when they aren’t doing well and the Mets are because they can’t take being second fiddle at all. They are the great Yankees with the 26 World championships, blah blah blah. Yankee fans haven’t realized the World Series trophy isn’t named the New York Yankees world series championship. They think they the Mets hate them because they are jealous? That’s called arrogance. Its like Paris Hilton thinking the world is against her because she’s so pretty, not because she’s a spoiled brat who never worked a hard day in her life and thinks the world owes her anything. So in a nutshell its the Yankee fans that’s why Met fans hate the Yankees for the most part. For the majority it comes down the fans, the arrogant, ignorant, oblivious fans and there sense of entitlement. Karma’s a bitch Yankee fans, its coming around now finally.
Because they cannot discuss their team without invoking the number 26.
I hate Yankee fans because they aren’t too bright. At the game on Friday, some gross Yankee fan sitting next to me said, “Who the f—- is Endy Chavez?” in the typical Yankee fan condensending tone. Then Endy hit the winning HR… thats who the f—- Endy Chavez is!!
