I hate the Yankees. I have always hated the Yankees. I’m a 35-year-old man who hates a team of nice guys whom I have never met. I hated the Yankees when they had Derek Jeter and Tino Martinez. I hated them when they had Mark Teixeira and Nick Swisher. I hate them now when they … Continue reading Why I Hate the Yankees/How to Root Against Them in Appropriate Fashion
This is the worst time of the year. The Yankees’ season is over, and other teams are still playing baseball. It’s exponentially worse when one of those teams is the Boston Red Sox, who eliminated you by outscoring you 20-4 in two consecutive nights at Yankee Stadium. I was at Game 3, still not even … Continue reading How the Yankees Should Approach This Offseason
So I’d like to enter into an embrace debate with the BTB readers for this post. Earlier this month, I attended a Yankees vs. Red Sox game at the always Yankee-friendly Fenway Pawk. There was constant calking from the loyal Red Sox fans, who told me on multiple occasions (I was wearing a Judge BP … Continue reading Are You a Bad Fan for Rooting for an Opposing Team’s No-Hitter When It’s Already Happening?
Well that couldn’t have gone any worse, could it? In the AFC championship game, the Jaguars almost did what America so desperately wanted and knocked off the Patriots. Unfortunately, almost is they key word in that sentence, and Tom Brady & company came back from a ten point fourth quarter deficit to secure their eighth … Continue reading Pros and Cons of Rooting for Either Team in Super Bowl LII as a Giants fan
As I promised in my blog the other day, I went through everyone that played a significant amount of time for the Yankees this year and gave their performance a grade. What’s a significant amount of time? I don’t know exactly, but Dustin Fowler, for example, did not get a grade. He did not even … Continue reading 2017 Yankees Report Card
I know that you loyal BTB readers are disappointed that I have written only two “This Day in Sports” articles so far. Therefore, I’m ready to give you two for the price of one! Today, October 5, is the 20-year anniversary of a great moment in Yankees/Indians history, and – can you believe it? – … Continue reading This Day in Sports History: Yankees/Indians – 10 Years Ago and 20 Years Ago
Before the 2017 World Series began, I wanted to write a column that ranks the World Series of the modern era. However, I remembered how miserable I felt before the 1999 and 2006 World Series, the two series that followed devastating Mets playoff losses. In fact, I ended up watching very few pitches of the … Continue reading Ranking the World Series of the Wild-Card Era
Who is the one player in the history of your most hated rival’s team that you secretly wish had been on your team? — Joe Posnanski (@JPosnanski) November 13, 2018 I just saw this question on Twitter, and it really got me thinking. You spend so much time rooting against the players on your rival … Continue reading If You Had to Pick One Player In Your Rival Team’s History To Play For Your Team, Who Would It Be?
I have not been this pumped for Olympic hockey since 1994, the last time that NHL players were not allowed in the Olympics. I realize that I am in the minority with this opinion, but I do not mind being in the minority on sports opinions. (See “Eli Manning”) There are three major reasons why … Continue reading Olympic Hockey is So Much Better Without NHL Players!
Note: Granted this blog was started by three Yankee fans, but we need some more Yankee hate on this blog. Everyone knows you can’t have a great sports blog without hating on/making fun of teams like the Yankees, Cowboys (unfortunately), Patriots, Warriors, etc. All Rise, and let me paint a hypothetical for you to start … Continue reading Don’t Tell Me I Can’t Hate On Aaron Judge Just Because He’s a Good Guy and a Young Star in the MLB
