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 word is a derogatory term used to describe Americans by the Brits, Canadians, Australians and the like; but in the USA used to define an American from the Northern States in the USA, such as New England and the Mid-West.

It was most notably used to describe to the Federal Solders and other Northerners by the Confederates during the Civil War Era. Even though some foreigner’s refer to all American’s as Yankees, does not make it so. Call a Southerner a Yankee and he’ll think you’re either just plain dumb or that you are trying to pick a fight.

The characteristics often associated with a stereotypical Yankee are shrewdness, thrift, craftiness, rudeness, arrogance, and loudness.

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.
To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.
To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.
To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.
And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast

A term and nickname created by Southerners and Confederate Civil War soldiers for a person who is from the North (Midwest/Northeast). It was especially given to Union soldiers who fought in the American Civil War, usually having to go into into The South in order to engage the enemy in combat. The Union forces invading Southern territory and also incidents where a few groups of soldiers pillaged and destroyed property and people's lives resulted in making this nickname derogatory by some.
Northerners and Midwesterners get called "Yankees" a lot by many Southerners.

Yankees Suck
It is a well known fact that the Yankees eat babies, rape young unwed mothers and are the number one cause of the decay of Western civilization.

The most historic and awesome team in American history. The New York Yankees are far more than just a baseball team. They are an institution. Legends such as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Joe Dimaggio, and Reggie Jackson were all Yankees. They have won the world Series 26 times.

Also known as the Bronx Bombers.
The New York Yankees are the ultimate sports franchise.

The most egotistical group of athletes to ever hit the major leagues. They are the first team to CHOKE on a 3 - 0 in the 2004 ALCS. They also suffered the biggest shut out in MLB history, losing 22-0 to Toronto. The Yankees Suck.
Who's your daddy now?
