Know-it-all Hollywood star and Cardinals fan ashes out at Yankees


Imagine: A Madison Avenue suit who would have rooted against Yogi Berra.

“For Don specifically, the Mets are great. They’re brand new. They represent nothing but possibility. They had this crazy year (1969) where they upset the whole apple cart. It’s a perfect team for Don Draper to root for. Don would never be a Yankee fan. That’s a frontrunner. He’s an underdog guy if he’s anything.”

Any serious Mad Men fan knows that Don wasn't a sports fan, period, but earlier in the show he would definitely have been a Yankees guy. Later, by 68-69, he would have seen his own sorry situation reflected in the Mets and become a fan just in time to be a winner...as the Yankees were becoming perennial losers.

Don was for the underdog as long as the underdog won. Pragmatic in that way.

All interesting points but, at the end of the day, who really cares what an actor thinks?
