look up any word, like porb:

a northerner that have very thick accents and are often quite stuck-up. They typically think that they are walking geniuses and act like they know EVERYTHING which can be quite irritating. Yankees often think they have the right to travel to southern states and get the 'right' to try to correct southern 'rednecks' on how to speak, or what 'proper' grammar is. Yankees are often very judgemental of the southern 'rednecks' and put many of them down because they have accents or dont use proper grammar when really it's just the way that the southerners were raised, and assume that all southerners are 'uneducated, incestuous, and racist'. Yankees also have problems admitting when they are wrong and saying sorry, instead they choose to be smartasses about things.

(not all northerners/yankees are like this, but the vast majority of them are)
yankee: excuse me but please use proper grammar in MY presence (even though I'm the one that has traveled all the way to YOUR area I still have the right to correct you, cause like, I'm better than you) okay?

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?

The greatest professional sporting team in the history of the known world. Winner of 26 World Series championship and 39 American league pennants. Members include such legends as babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Lou Gherig, Joe DiMaggio, Roger Maris, Yogi Bera, Whitey Ford, Reggie Jackson, Don Mattingly, and Wade Boggs. Yankee Stadium, also known as “The House That Ruth Built" is situated in the Bronx in the greatest city in the world: New York. The Yankees' chief rival is the Boston Red Sox, whom after winning one championship in 86 years, have suddenly come under the delusion that they are a greater team than the Yankees. 1 in 86 is pathetic and no cause for boasting in such a sad city as Beantown.In short, G-d created the New York Yankees on the Sixth day at twilight.
NYY Fan: What's the greatest baseball team in the world?
Random Person: The <Insert Random Team Here>!
NYY Fan: Wrong, Fucktard! It's the New York Yankees.

Team that buys every player in major league baseball, and then wonders why they can't win a World Series every year.
Even though the Yankees payroll was 180 million, compared to 100 million of the Red Sox, they barely made it past Boston in 11 innings of Game 7 with some timely BLOOP b.s. hits.
