26 world championships, most in mlb history and oh yeah they didn’t lose 22-0 to Toronto it was Cleveland but we still are a better team then the red sox.
Derek Jeter- Best Yankee Ever! The yankees are the greatest ever, 2001 even though we didnt win the world series we still had a great time.

its been said to death but the yankees are, quite frankly, the greatest team in sports. To those of you complaining about the payroll, make up your minds. Half of you say the payroll is the only reason we win, the rest of you say we can't win even with the payroll. I can't agree with either, although the latter is at least more realistic. The majority of the teams chamionships came before all of the money, and that success is in large part the reason for the money being as it is today, admittedly the boss helped a bit as well

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.
i need to put the word yankees in the example so they'll post my definition

The greatest franchise in sports history. Fans of this team respect the game of baseball and find no need to speak about the sexual prefferences of members of opposing teams. Fans of this team know what it is to win and thus know how to react to winning, unlike stupid non sports fans who claim they love the red sox.
Yankees rule, for once SHUT UP Boston

Originally used by British settlers in New York (New Amsterdam) for the Dutch: it's a combination of the names Jan and Kees, very common Dutch male names.
What's that Dutch bloke called? I want to buy Manhattan from him for 1 dollar.

Oh I don't know, their names are so hard to remember. Just call him Yankee, you can't go wrong then.

1. Any persons from a northern state, who takes it upon themselves to put down southern states (and southern residents) by making illogical comments.
2. A loud mouth who can't resist that urge to put down southern states by using out-dated stereotypes and offensive terms.
1. "This new dick head at school must be a yankee"
2. " I thought I heard a pissed off bird, but it was just a Yankee squawking about The South, which ironically is where they just moved to."

The Yankees OWN you all. They're the best team in baseball -- their dynasty will never be surpassed by another baseball team. Yankees rule.
Everyone on urbandictionary wishes they could be as sexy as the Yanks.

The most egotistical group of athletes to ever hit the major leagues. The Yankees suck not because the play badly, but because they are not a team they are a business.
A Yankee fan's contribution to baseball chat rooms is limited to "Red Sox suck" and "1918."
