Way too far

It finally happened. Red Sox-Yankees turned deadly.

Apparently some woman in New Hampshire ran over a guy because he was with a group of Sox fans who started chanting "Yankees suck" when saw the NY sticker on her car. Have the past few years really been that bad, Yankee Country?

OK, I'm obviously making light of situation that really isn't light at all. I feel awful for the victim's family. (He apparently died shielding a friend from being hit, which makes the whole thing even sadder). Also, alcohol was clearly a factor here. This woman wasn't so much a Yankees fan as an angry drunk with no self control. You can find those folks in every fan base.

But still: Jebus H. Christo, WTF is going on here?!? We all love our teams and hate our rivals, but when you're starting to run people over, it's time to take a step back, light some scented candles and have yourself a think. Maybe baseball's not a good sport for you. Maybe look into basketba.... Socc... Curling! Yes, curling. Get yourself into that. It's a sport of quiet dignity, really.

As a lifelong Yankee fan, I can honestly say I don't hate Red Sox fans. The Red Sox? Hate them with a passion you cannot imagine, but the fans don't bother me.

As an Arizona Cardinal fan, I basically hate the entire world!
