My old man has hated the Yanks since the 40's. Ted Williams is his hero. I'm not making this up. As much as I hate the Yankees, I just can't fathom the unremitting hatred my old man must have for that asshole team.
I'd like to say that it's a family tradition, but my grandpa was a Yankee fan. But he was following baseball probably as early as the 1900's or 1910's when there weren't so many baseball teams. Plus, his parents (my great-grandparents) were kicked out of Montreal. So I can sort of understand gramps liking of the Yankees, since Quebec is adjacent to N.Y.
