"The enemy of mine enemy is my friend"


I find myself in uncharted waters...

Sometimes situations present themselves that thrust us into deep conundrums that shake our convictions to the core.

Such is where I find myself this coming weekend.

How do I, a die-hard Yankee fan, push for them to defeat the Tampa Bay Rays, KNOWING that doing so enables the Red Sox to win the American League East!? I despise the Red Sox more than grim death. They are pretenders to the throne that rightfully belongs to my beloved Yankees.

I would much rather see a young scrappy team like Tampa Bay win the division than a bunch of blow-hards like the Red Sox.

Oh divided loyalty...

Having been on the opposite side of this equation for many decades, I sympathize with your struggle, but think you will find yourself rooting for the Rays. In Yankee/Redsox circles, hate is stronger than love.

And hard as it may be for a Yankee fan to understand (not having the experience in these matters that The Nation does) ... it doesn't really matter! This year, the AL East will be decided in Toronto and Tampa, not New York.

PS They never should have let Torre go.

I feel the same way.....

Hank insulted Torre!

I have no ill feelings towards Girardi....but he is NOT Torre.

This year was a honeymoon I expect much better next year!

PS. I hope the Yankee brass has the foresight to hang onto Xavier Nady and 'Pudge'!

My poor Detroit Tigers !! doom & gloom! Where I live, near Kalamazoo, lots of Yankee fans - Kzoo is the home of Derek Jeter! Met him at Mcdonalds one day - He couldn't get the ATM to work - I was going to ask hum if he needed to borrow a $20!!
