How Worthless Are These Now?

You may remember the shirts that popped up after the Red Sox won the World Series, answering back the Sox' incredible title by Yankee fans. It was a revert to the old Yankee Fan Stand By: "we've won 26 championships." Those "got rings" shirts materialized. (Along with those totally ridiculous "2090" shirts, about how the Red Sox won't win another title for another 86 years).

On them, they had the 26 Yankee rings, along with the Red Sox six. (Now seven, guys!) And they had a really smug sentence on the back to go with it.

"Oh...one more thing. We won't go 86 years before winning another ring."

First they were history professors ("1918"), then they were fortune tellers ("2090"). Ha.

Oh, one more thing, Yankee fans.

Here's the updated World Series championship scoreboard for the 21st Century:
Boston Red Sox 2
New York Yankees 0

Yes, they now have to win two titles to catch the Red Sox in this century. I guess it's time to come up with a new obnoxious t-shirt to sell.

Thanks to my buddy Dave for passing along an email of the t-shirt to me.

They have nothing left now. No chants, no 21st century championships, no third baseman and an owner who wants to make the closer of the future into a starter. It's the 80s for the Yankees all over again. I expect to see Ed Whitson on the mound for them any day now.

It would be nice to see "Trots" Whitson back with the Yankees...
