The Red Sox took two out of three in the Bronx this weekend. You can tell from the Times and other papers that the Yankees still don’t want to take the Sox seriously, but the great Don Zimmer was more up front when he said the Sox “aren’t going to go away.”
This delightful snippet from the Times’ baseball chat room:
“Saturday there was a bandwagon Yankee fan sitting behind us. He yelled 1918 at us, so I asked him who played SS for the Yankees before Jeter and he didn’t have a clue! The section I was in was loaded with Red Sox fans, we had a good laugh at his expense.
Later on, the same guy ended up getting his butt kicked by a Boston fan. Apparently he went right up to a very big Boston fan and yelled, “Boston Sucks”. The Boston fan grabbed him and told him to repeat what he said. So, the fan stupidly said the Red Sox suck. He ended up getting the crap kicked out of him. Who would have thought that in the middle of enemy territory, a Yankee fan would get his butt kicked by a Red Sox fan.”
