And while we’re at it, here’s a link to Gay Talese’s famous 1966 profile of Joe D, The Silent Season of a Hero.
I just stumbled across this Yankees Blog
Now I'm not big on 'Hating' players or serious namecalling (just a occasional little teasing like 'Papsmear'), but this guy lets it all hang out.
His Blog banner reads:
A Yankees Fan living in Boston
I hate the Red Sox more than Hitler! I love the city of Boston though. Red Sox fans in my opinion are the worst fans! They are just northeast Trailer Trash... Racist Drunks... Over-reacting Women... The Vile Weed that squirms through a great city as Boston. And the problem is I'm a Yankees Fan living among these heathens!
And an example of his posts is:
HEY MASSHOLES... SUCK MY MOTHER FUCKING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BALLS!
Anyway, some of it is pretty funny stuff, and I had to think of Thelarmis while I was reading.
 Sounds like exactly the kind of mind numbing ignorance I try to avoid by reading Bronx Banter.
 I was just about to write that it may be Williamnyy23 or Monkeypants' secret blog, a place to avoid talk of WAR, WinShares and UZR...
 Agreed; I often wondered if electric sheep do indeed dream (or if they're deferred...)
Hate the Red Sox more than Hitler? That's not only disturbing but it isn't even funny.
 Obviously not a MOT.
And the joke is this guy doesn't like Sox fans because they are crude and haters, HA!
And someone needs to tell me what 'Over-reacting Women' are.
, ...(not touching those with a ten-foot pole...)
I'm pretty sure this was cribbed from an old George Vecsey column:
YOU FUCKING MASSHOLE, FAIR-WEATHER PIECE OF SHIT FANS, YOU GOT WHAT YOU DESERVED, YOUR TEAM WASN'T THAT GOOD, YOU SIGN WAGNER THINKING HE WOULD BE YOUR HELP AND LOOK HE SUCKED IT UP FOR YOU AND THEN HE TOOK DOWN PAPEL-TARD WITH HIM. WAGNER IS AN EX-MET, THAT SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU SOMETHING. HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
