"As for Red Sox fans, the Red Sox Suck. I went to a Red Sox game against the Orioles once at Fenway. What a crap-hole that park is."

1 - Red Sox fans are the most rabid and knowledgeable fans in the country.
2 - The Red Sox have three WS wins in the 21st century while no other team has more than one. Tell me the Yanks have two and I'll laugh my tush off at your ignorance.
3 - Fenway, while small, is a joy to see ballgames in.
a - Fans are up close to the players.
b - It's smoke free.
c - The Green Monster and the field's odd angles add so much interest to the game.
d - The fans are not only intelligent but courteous to each other. The bathrooms are immaculate because of that. (The last time I went to the old Yankee Stadium, the bathroom toilets were all clogged with paper and refuse by the 5th inning because the fans were animals. Is the new Yankee Stadium any better, I've never been there?)
4 - The neighborhood around Fenway is safe to walk in day or night.
5 - You sound like a typical Yankee fan who only talks out of emotion rather than logic or fact. Now tell me how great Babe Ruth and Joe D. were, the typical Yankee fan response to any criticism of their beloved team. And BTW, no real Brooklyn Dodger fan could have ever switched to the Yankees... turncoat.
