A New Breed of Yankee Fans

I have two friends from college who are from Baltimore, were Orioles fans, and somehow adapted and became Yankee fans.  At different times, I've given them each grief over the matter.  I mean, those are bitter rivals.  Should I abandon the Cubs and become a Cardinals fan?  (Don't answer that.)  Actually, I really like the Reds right now.  Sheesh.  Anyway, I may be infatuated by several guys on the Reds, but I'm not worried about becoming a Reds fan.  I'll never be a Reds fan, unless my son or daughter to be named later becomes their GM one day.

Anyway, I was thinking about these two friends this evening, when three immediately notorious Yankee fans played a part in making sure the Rangers Nelson Cruz didn't intercept Robinson Cano's homerun in the 2nd inning of tonight's ALCS game 4.  Those fans have already been called "obnoxious" and "jersey shore".

I wondered if these friends have any bad flashbacks to the Jeffrey Maier scene?  They probably hated that kid, and now they're probably rooting for the three neanderthals that helped Cano?  I guess it's not so complex, but still there has to be a little Orioles fan inside of them crying to be saved.

Yeah, Sindler and Margie, I'm looking at you.
