    Awesome article as usual PFH.

    I am also grossed out by the A-Rod-Kate Hudson Clip you included in your article. I am not a fan of either of them, but it added the necessary flavor to your article to make it a gourmet meal.

    Matt Capps still has his baby fat. Stop making fun of him. He is just a baby guy.

    I love the article, I was writing a post the same time as this, and when I finished I read your post, I apologize that I wrote about some of the same things, your post was very good.

    I shared with you being a fan of both baseball and soccer. One thing both share is incredible fan loyalty. In soccer is more intense because most soccer leagues have relegation. That is, if your team finish last, next year it plays in a lower division, and a team of the lower division goes up. Which is an unbearable tragedy for the fans of the team that goes down. You see grown men literally crying and weeping in the stands. But they stay loyal, waiting patiently for the team to go up again.
    And the traditions, and the coach is responsible for all the evil in the world, and so on.

    That might be the best summation of Yankees fans dealing with the wider world I've yet read (heck, it's a pretty excellent summation of fandom in general).

    The more I wrote this, the less I felt I could snidely dismiss all Yankee fans, as I so often have done in the past. There are cool people who happen to cheer for the Yankees (some of them in my own family) and I definitely don't want to disrespect them at all. And at a certain point it's not even worth engaging with the douchey ones.

    But engaging them can be awfully funny too...

    Thanks for the comment!

    Interesting read. I've always felt truly sorry for true Yankee fans, the ones who don't act obnoxiously and appreciate the subtleties of the game. They are easily overpowered by the douchey fans and can't really establish a separate identity of their own.

    As someone who has lived out east for awhile now, I've roomed with both types of fans. I hate the Yanks with a passion, but I still feel sorry for the silent minority of respectful fans who will always endure initial bandwagon skepticism when introducing their fandom to someone else. There are no bandwagon Twins fans where I am. When someone learns about my affiliation, they know I'm serious. It's a special luxury that I dearly enjoy. Yankees fans will never be able to know it.

    That being said, I still enjoy bantering with even the most close-minded NYY fans.

    celebratory Nickleback?

    Oddly enough, I enjoyed the rest of this, this, whatever you call it.

    I just thought you were funny. And strange.

    This was nice.
    Now I think you're funny and real. And strange.

    Strangely, this is a normal post.... On a side note, totally had you pegged as a weird 30 year old college chick that is into drama and E-entertainment. My condolences.

    I've noticed that video issue at times.

    (I was hoping to embed the spectacle that was Turandot, but MNOP is as stingy with embeddable video as MLB...I do hope that TVoR and CCP enjoyed it as much as my wife and I did...even if there was a notable lack of highlight reel defense)

    NM. I see now. It's a video we need to embed.

    "which would look something like this to the Vanimal"

    Is there supposed to be a link there or something?

    BTW, The Voice of Reason and The Chatty Chatty Princess saw Turandot the night before.

    You left out fire and brimstone coming down from the skies, rivers and seas boiling, forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, and finally, mass hysteria.

    Thank you Peanuts.
    These articles will give me a whole new way to look at our Twins this year.

    That could prove very helpful at times.

    No, I'm just giving you the two options to keep things simple.

    Are you sure those two things are mutually exclusive?
