American League baseball team based in The Bronx, New York. They were established in 1901 and currently play in Yankees Stadium. Some famous players include: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig,Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Joe Dimaggio, Don Mattingly and countless others most of which have been inducted into the baseball hall of fame in Cooperstown.

Undoubtedly the most dominant professional sports franchise in the US and possibly the world. As of now ('06) 26 world series wins, 39 World series appearances and a history of winning, legendary players and professionalism unparalleled to any other ball club in MLB.
lots of people are jealous of the new york yankees because of their success, especially people who troll on Urban dictionary. Yankee fans don't care what others think, we stick by our team through thick and thin.

people point out the obvious by stating that the yankees buy players, no shit sherlock, every team buys players you pay players to play- hence PROFESSIONAL baseball, this ain't little league- the yankees are better at it because it has the biggest and most dedicated fan base in the US.

we also have johnny damon

Without question, the most dominant team in the history of all professional sports. Also, the most disciplined and respected team in MLB. The standard by which to judge a major league team. The best team in baseball. Consistently owns the Boston Red Sox.
The New York Yankees have won more World Series than most other professional teams combined.

1. Everything that is wrong with Major League Baseball. Their owner, George Steinbrenner is a greedy bastard who buys at least 3 players every offseason

2. The reason Major League Baseball needs a salary cap.

3. Their season is considered a "bust" if they don't win the World Series.
The New York Yankees are the gayest team ever!

1 Wild Card 43 Division Titles
40 Pennants(I count 1994 because they had the best record so back when there wasnt a playoff; best record determined who won the pennant).
26 World Championships

The greatest team ever not just in baseball but in every sport. 110 titles total. The cream of the crop. A team that has been great long before free agency.

They lost to Boston in 2004, but after beating them year after year and decade after decade, the sox were due to win at least once. And it wasnt like the Yanks had Clemens, Pettite, Wells, Soriano, or even Giambi, where as the Red Sox lost no one from 2003 and also added Schilling in a trade for no one and also Foulke(which by the way the sox have a 127 million dollar payroll, so I wouldnt bitch about just the Yanks).And who the Yanks had to replace all those great pitchers were either injured or inexperienced. So I look at the Yanks/Sox series of 2004 like when the Knicks finally beat the bulls in 94 to go to the finals: They did it when Jordan didnt play so basically when the talent left the team. So they didnt really do it when it counted or the sox would of done it in 2003.

But anyways the legacy of the Yanks is forever in stone as sports icons. The truest of champs and forever the team that is either loved or hated. Either way the Yankees put buts in the seats and that people is great for baseball. Long live the Evil Empire! If you haters want some, come get some! Oh and for you bitches who just love to hate. The Score is: New York Yankees 26, Boston Red Sux 6. I figuered I would let you all know. Long live the curse of Pedro Martinez.
Whats it mean to be great dad and whats it mean to suck? Well son to be great you got to be a New York Yankee, and to suck you got to be a Red sox and a New england sports Fan.

definition to the most band wagon fans in the history of all's who whine when they don't get the next 50+ million dollar contract player (even though they have about 9 of them already)'s who think there team is the shit even though they are the only 'dynasty' to blow a 3 game lead in ANY playoff series known...not to mention it was the ALCS where they are suppose to OWN everybody with there un-godly amount of payroll...the only line a bandwagon yankee fan has is..."26 world titles man"'s like the saying goes...everytime a bell rings, a converted devil ray/royal/padre fan turns into a yankee fan...
"Hey we have 26 world titles!"..."yea i don't know shit about baseball, and i've never watched a yankee game, but i can buy there fitted hats, wear them backwards, and walk around saying that we've won 26 world titles"...(that is what a new york yankees fan basically does)

1.The #1 team in baseball that attracts "bandwaggon fans" but in reality attracts "bandwaggon haters" because they are mislead by every other team who have been owned at one point by the Yankees.

2.The Boston Red Sox #1 rival. Sox fans hate the Yankees with the passions of hell because they were indeed owned multiple times by the Yankees.

3.The evil Empire. Destroyer of baseball. Over-paid egotistic idiots (expression commonly used by Boston fans, the 2nd most paid team in baseball). The Yankees do manage however to sell-out game tickets wherever they go and put butts on stadium seats. The irony.
1. Baseball fan: Do you watch baseball?
Guy: No.
Baseball fan: If you could pick a baseball team you
didn't like though, who would it be?
Guy: Hmmm...Probably the New York Yankees.
Baseball fan: Typical...

2. Boston fans: We were cursed I tell you! CURSED!!
Yankee fan: No, you sucked for 86 years. GET OVER IT!

3. Boston fan: Those damn Yankees buy everything. Baseball's
not fun anymore.
Guy: So you going to the game?
Boston fan: Of course, the Yankees are playing at Fenway.
Those are the best games!

Hands Down, Greatest Team in Proffesional Sports. Best Fans, And obviously the best stadium. They have won 26 world championships since 1923. Rivaled to the Boston Red Sox, who spent 86 years thinking of comebacks to say how they are better than the Yankees. Red Sox fans usually put sour faces on when they are chanting "Yankees Suck", and Johnny Damon hits a triple.
Yankee Fan-"I'm a fan of the New York Yankees"
Red Sox Fan-" A-Rod and Jeter are gay!"
Yankee Fan-"Whatever makes you feel better about yourself."
