....as to why New Yorkers put such an enormous effort into their Red Sox hatred. I'm friends with this acquaintance on Facebook (who I'm still working really hard to even like...he's a friend of a friend's husband and I find him...difficult, though more likeable with age). Anyways, EVERY status update has to do with some little foible committed by a Sox player. EVERY DAY. Who has that kind of time?
Now I am an ardent Red Sox fan. I told the Facebook world how I was wearing my Sox thong and it was magical and the Sox would probably break their losing streak because of it (because my underwear has that kind of power, duh). It totally worked! They won! I moved on. This guy though is wrapped up in it. My friend's husband is too to a lesser extent. I dunno. I guess I just don't have the time to invest. Maybe it's just that I don't give a sh*t about the Yankees on a day to day basis. Maybe I should to increase my fan cred. Maybe I should google news the Yanks every day. My status updates could be like "Matsui collects P0RN!" "Sheffield beats his wife!" "Giambi had a fungal infection - gross!" "Posada strengthens his hands with urine!"
Eh. So not worth it, LOL.
