Family Fight: BernBaby you ignorant dupe

Heh, heh.

How's it feel, BernBabyBern?

Baseball fans everywhere outside the Bronx, having watched their memories march toward New York's riches or to a handful of other teams thanks to the bar set by the Yankees, might find it hard to work up a tear.

Don't like watching your memories sold? On QVC, no less? Kinda sucks, doesn't it? Now you know what fans outside the castle wall have been wailin' about for decades while all of Yankeedom played deaf and dumb.

Your heart is aching over merchants selling off your temple?
Aww shucks.

True, true. Memories last much better than aesthetic construction materials. If they leave it up, it's just going to be scrawled on with spray paint and pissed on.

Oh, Suz, Suz, Suz.

You're a bitter, bitter, person. It must be sad to live in your baseball world.

Yes, I was bemoaning was a seeming lack of respect for tradition and history. A respect that the Yanks, more often than not, have had. (And when they haven't, IT IS HIGH is the first to point it out)

But, alas, you wouldn't understand history and tradition. Your team plays in a park that is probably the worst stadium athletes have ever stepped in. It makes the hellhole that is Shea Stadium look like one of the Wonders of the World.

When Yankee Stadium is torn down, Yankee fans will feel like they are losing an old friend. When the Metrodome is torn down, Twins fans will pay $20 for the chance to swing a sledgehammer.

And forgive us if, as you say, "the bar set by the Yankees" is too high and makes it tough on the other teams. Boo freakin' hoo. Sorry if the Yanks screw things up for other teams by trying to win. Oh, and I misspoke before. The Twinkies do have some tradition - they proudly keep up the Calvin Griffith tradition of putting saving money ahead of building a successful team. Calvin was the guy who bragged that he was the first to serve soda in cups with ice - he could get twice as many sales with the same amount of soda. (Oh, and he used to like to make the occasional racial slur. Poor Rod Carew was just too sensitive. It was just Calvin being Calvin.)

It's a sad baseball world, you live in, Suz, where jealousy and envy rule.

Hey, BernBaby, as a famous commenter on this blog once said: "If they leave it up, it's just going to be scrawled on with spray paint and pissed on."

So there.
