Why I hate Yankee fans

Wagner got Cairo to ground out and got the
save and the Mets won 4-3.



May 22, 2006 -- Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión isn't taking any chances when the bids from developers who want to rebuild Yankee Stadium come in later this month.

Technically, the winning bid could come from a Boston company.

"We're putting together a task force to find any interlopers," Carrión jokingly told The Post. "They'll be asked to pronounce words like 'park' and 'car' and 'chowder' and they'll be required to watch Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone highlights over and over to see if they become despondent or enraged.

"I would refuse to register a contract with a Boston firm for public-safety reasons," said Comptroller Bill Thompson, who approves the winning bid. "Any stadium they build would collapse in the postseason."

Red Sox fans said they're happy to leave the job to a New York company. "They'll overpay and be disappointed - just like having A-Rod on their team," said Jim McGuire, co-owner of Professor Thom's, a Bosox-friendly bar in Manhattan.

And the Yankees travel to Beantown today for a three-game rumble with their perennial rivals.

Collapse in the post-season?

Who played the White Sox last year for the AL Championship?

Who lost four straight to the Red Sox in 2004?

The Yankees political lackies are talking might big for a team which came two outs of getting swept by a younger, better led Mets team, and if Billy Wagner hadn't lost his shit Saturday afternoon, we'd be talking about the Yankees being swept. The Mets beat up on Yankee pitching all three games.

It's not 1995 anymore.The Yankees haven't won a World Series in six years and the humiliation they suffered in 2004 was epic. They had the Red Sox on the ropes and the Sox came back to beat them silly,humiliate them at home.

So all this smug talk about how Boston sucks is well, Yankee delusions.

Oh yeah, fuck the fuckin' Yankees
