Your Typical Yankee Fan

I saw a letter to the editor in today's New York Post, and it definitely gave me a good chuckle. Today, the Post had a whole column of letters about the Yankees ALDS bomb out, and this one was my favorite:

Catch up to us, and then you can talk.

The attitude this Yankee fan exhibits is exactly the reason why the Yankees as a franchise is so hated, not just by Red Sox and Mets fans, but around the country. It reminds me of what I call "The Yankee Fan Mantra":

"When all else fails, remind the world how many championships we've won."

There's only one thing I can say to you and your letter Ms. Marsibilio:

They may not be recent history & those who tote that line, have nothing to say, anyway.
