WSJ: Yankee Fans Are Hardly Fans At All

The Red Sox are on a roll. Turns out, they may just be what we originally thought they were.......or they may take two steps backwards this weekend. With the Yanks coming to the Fens in what can already be called a "big series" for the Red Sox (not so big for the Yankees), I offer this recent article and analysis from the Wall Street Journal:

The Wall Street Journal surveyed 650 fans across all five boroughs and determined:“There are as many Mets fans as there are Yankees fans in Manhattan, but, overall, the Yankees have twice as many fans. Mets fans own more guns, are more likely to bet on games and follow their team more closely… On the other hand, Yankees fans tend to be more metrosexual, they drink more Starbucks coffee, they’re more likely to own a Mac than a PC, and tend to be single and skinnier. Mets fans drink far more beer… They also drink more in general… Mets fans monitor their team’s progress, and they listen to substantially more sports radio.”

This likely surprises no one, and in no way am I clapping for the Mets here, but ITM has been tied up lately and I needed a quick post.

To quote Joe Murph: "so...yankees fans aren't fans basically. I'm sorry, but skinny single people hanging out in starbucks on their macs and not "following" their team are not fans."

Totally agree. Bring on those metrosexual, latte drinking, mannie-peddie getting, fake tanning, full of themselves, know nothing Yankee fans. Go Sox.

Their fans may suck, but their team is kicking our ass all over the field!

I unfortunately agree. Why do you think we haven't posted this weekend? Simply too much anger and disgust. And possibly too many adult beverages as well.
