"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute

I’m that dickhead who gives dirty looks to people wearing Red Sox gear in New York. It’s a private game I play and yeah, it’s pitiful. I haven’t seen as many Red Sox hats this summer, though. And when I do see them, my instinct is not to sneer but to be impressed. These are your Red Sox fans, not the bandwagon variety. Plus, there is little pleasure to be had in busting chops when a team is lousy. It’s just too easy.

Which isn’t to say that I’m not happy that the Red Sox have been awful. I just won’t crow about it.

I can understand, being a Jet fan {ducking}...
But, as I am also a Knick fan, I cannot openly root for an organization that is caked thickly with incompetence, as the Jets are proving to be.

That said, while I am fascinated with the current season of Red Sox Epic Fail, I gotta hand it to them for being able (and having an insane amount of luck) to purge humongous contracts and swallow their pride to a certain degree (Bobby V notwithstanding). If we didn't have Hankfurter in the driver's seat at the time, we might have been able to do the same without even trying.
