Lays claim to 26 MLB titles (wrongly called "World Series").
Much-loved by home fans, much hated by fans of every other MLB team.
Since George Steinbrenner took control of the team in 1973, the team's payroll has regularly been at the top of Major League Baseball. They have won the MLB title 6 times in the 35 years Steinbrenner has owned them.
Speaking directly to the redsox fans, i find it laughable that you are able to so boldly speak of the 2003 ALCS "choke", when in reality the majority of your team's history in the 20th century has been defined by "choking"; the "curse" was more or less a series of chokes in big situations. In short, i'm glad you were able to snap the "curse" solely because the yankees "choked"...
putting the arguments aside, heres the history: 1903 the team once known as the baltimore orioles move to new york and are called the highlanders. after leaving hilltop park and heading to lower ground the highlander name was no longer appropriate so they became the yankees. The redsox sent a number of players to the team to ensure yankee success and therefore the success of the lesser american league (which reminds me, sox fans, you had a hand in creating the monster you now hate)...you know the rest from there, a lot of winning and championships for a great team in a great park in a great city.
the most overpaid team in baseball, which means, they don't have any REAL skill or talent. the announcers at their games are a group of old farts who masturbate while staring at A-Rod.
the yankee team consists of Derek Jeter, A-Rod, and some other guys that nobody cares about because their celebrity status isn't high enough. Derek Jeter is an egotistic and close-minded bag of douche who thinks he's so handsome when in reality he looks like a drag queen...same for A-Rod. they constantly compete over who gets to be the hotter yankee, even though they know they are both equally fugly.
yankee games are also boring to watch.
Person #2: No way! What is it?
Person #1: They say to just simply watch a Yankees game!
Smart person: The Yankees are the most overpaid and overrated team in sports.
Yankee fan: OMFG you're just jealous! They are the best team in baseball, they are so good!
Smart person: If they are "so good" then why do they have such a sucky pitcher like Randy Johnson? I guess he isn't getting paid enough! That will be Jeter if his salary ever goes down!
Yankee fan: OMG! ::cries:: I got owned!
Joe Torre: So...ready for another win today Derek?
Derek Jeter: I don't know, I'm feeling kind of broke lately.......
Joe Torre: How about another 5 million added to your salary?
Derek Jeter: NOW I feel like playing baseball!
Joe Torre: But what about the game itself? And the fans? Isn't that more important than your salary?
Derek Jeter: More important than money and ferraris and being called a ladies man? Go fuck yourself, old timer! I'm in this for the riches, yo!
A yankee in the noun sense is synonymous with the word handjob. It also could be used to refer to one of gives "yankees" or "handjobs" on a regular basis.
One could use alterations of the word to create a verb, e.g.: "yank," "yanked," or even "yankee'd."
