I\'m a Yankees fan too. Grew up in North Jersey, can't help it. When I was a kid they were struggling, Scott Sanderson was their ace. After Mattingly fucked up his back, you would just watch to see if Roberto Kelly could hit .300.
To chime in on the "Why don't you like the Mets instead?" argument, I don't dislike the Mets, but they're kinda novelty. All that Neon at Shea, and in the 80's they were the "cool" team, with Strawberry and Gooden, they were flashy.
I think it's best summed up at the last Subway Series, from the perspective of a Met fan at Game 4 at Shea, 1st at bat:
"There was this retarded opening celebration with these people in dog costumes that ran out to \"Who Let the Dogs Out." Jeter was the first at-bat and he was watching this from the batter\'s circle with a grimace on his face like he was seeing the stupidest thing in the world. Then he walked up to the plate, 1st pitch, and hit a home run."
That\'s Shea Statium.
