Over the years I have tried to understand and relate to Yankee fans but I find myself unable to do it. Even if I was not a Sox fan, there is something about the differing mentalities that is immediately apparent. As a general rule, a fan of one team can usually distingush between kin and foe easily. There is some personality trait that seems to connect all Sox fans seperately from all Yankee fans. I have been trying to figure out just what it is for years now and I cant quite put my finger on it, but I think I have come as close as I will be able to. Both Sox fans and Yankee fans will go out and say that the reason that they cant get along is because the others are just plain obnoxious. While this may be true with regards to Yankee fans...lets be fair, Sox fans enjoy a little boasting and taunting as well. The true difference is that Sox fans know what it is to not always be on top. While there is no dout that the Yankees work hard, they have a reputation, and its an elitist one. It is entirely obvious that Yankee fans and players look down apon others as inferior. The Sox are more attractive to players who are willing to help a team that is going to have some unbelievable years and some years of dissapointment. While every team would love to have 26 world series under their belt, who would want to trade humility and decency for even one. That is why I have to respect and love the Sox, not only because they are incredibly fun to watch, but because the fans know there is more to baseball and sports than the number of world series rings.
