Yankee Fans Are the Greatest....
....complainers in the world.
It's been three days since the Yanks lost to the Angels and you should read the headlines in the NY tabloids or listen to sports radio. The papers have blamed the loss on everything from Joe Torre's managerial ability to global warming. Meanwhile the fans on the radio just don't seem to get the idea that your team simply will not win every World Series. They bitch and moan, curse A-Rod for hitting into a double play to end the series, complain that Randy Johnson can't pitch, Giambi can't field, and on and on.
It's the same drivel every time the Yanks get knocked out. So after years of reflecting upon this I have come to this conclusion. Many Yankee fans have a massive inferiority complex that can only be negated by having their team win. No win, more inferiority.
I realize that many sports fan gain self-esteem by closely associating themselves with a sports team, but Yankee fans take this to an extreme.
But you might say the above statement is nothing more then a normal bile-filled rant that all NY Mets fans generate in October because there team tends to spend October golfing instead of playing. Well, that is simply not true. I am so used to switching to football and hockey that the lack of Mets' playoff time does not bother me. I don't expect them to do well so I am rarely disappointed. When they do scrape together a winning team it's simply that much better.
