I hate the Yankees.

A dark cloud descends over the land as the evil empire prevails again. Who, outside of New York, wanted to see this again?

If you did, and you are, then you suck. It’s too late (or early, depending on your perspective) to pull any punches. Yankee hatred may be a birthright for the Boston bred, but I think I’m just barely objective enough to say this with deserved conviction. That, or I’m just really disappointed.

As for me? This New England product hasn’t been this depressed since Calvin Schiraldi served up spaghetti and meatballs to the Mets in game six.

Yeah, I know. I’m too upset to come up with good metaphors. This will just have to do.
