I saw this story this morning. Last week, Red Sox Nation North Carolina governor Sean Bunn was at an event to watch the Sox play Game 4 of the ALCS, and returned home to find that his condo had been vandalized, and many of his possessions were defaced with Yankee logos and anti-Red Sox nonsense.
Mr. Bunn believes that whoever entered his apartment illegally wasn't really a Yankee fan, but someone just looking to get back at him and has a good idea who it was. And whoever it was, spelling wasn't the highest priority, and they misspelled "Yankees" with "Yankes."
I guess he was just another criminal reinforcing the Yankee fan stereotype we've come to know and love.
