I'm from the Bronx, so, I'm a Yankee fan. Santi was a Mets fan. I was a Mets fan for only one year and I'm man enough to admit it. That year was 1986. Some of you know what I'm talking about. I can almost hear the cheers as we remember the iconic 86 Mets. I think it was my favorite year for baseball.
I told someone that I was a Yankee fan. The Yankee symbol is the N from New and the Y of York and Yankee on top of each other. I love it. The simplicity of it, white embroidery over a navy background. Yankee Stadium is located in the Bronx, MY BOROUGH!! The Yankees have 27 World Series Wins. Here we are in this humble sweet borough, the "not Manhattan" of New York City. And then in the midst of one of the biggest metropolises of the world, in The Bronx is found the world famous Yankees. I was pooh poohed. If you don't understand, you don't understand.
It is with pride that the Bronx can rep Yankees. I think there have been times that me personally, I needed something to be proud of. I may live in the Bronx and my boyfriend just broke up with me but I live in the same borough as Yankee Friggin Stadium, so show some respect!!!! I am a vicarious winner through the Yankees. This is the commonality that I have with them. The Yankees mean more to the Bronx than just their wins. They are iconic, authentic and awesome, just like the people of the Bronx. I'm a Yankee fan and I tell you that there is every possibility that I will be a fan till the day I die. Go Yankees!!!!
