The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the borough of the Bronx, in New York City, New York and are a member of Major League Baseball's American League East Division. One of the American League's eight charter franchises, the club was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles, and moved to New York City in 1903, becoming known as the New York Highlanders before being officially renamed the "Yankees" in 1913.3 From 1923 to 2008, the Yankees' home ballpark was Yankee Stadium, one of the world's most famous sports venues. In 2009, they moved into a new stadium, also called "Yankee Stadium"
I'm going to watch the watch the Yankees kick some ass.

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 originally comes from a word for midwesterners known as "Jan Kaas" or dutch for John Cheese, as many of them made cheese such as in Wisconsin. It gradually became a word for any northerner.

Someone who pretends to be left-leaning and to like art but actually minimizes the danger of everything in an institutional fashion, perhaps from Catholic/Jehovas Witness/Episcopalian influence, but still pops into a sex-club on Saturday regardless of the institutional religious background he or she may come from. The yankee may feel like he won the American civil war even though he is only a second generation Italian/Jew/Irishman. Their rent tends to be higher than other areas.

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.

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."
