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?

Originally a term used by dutch settlers in america to refer to anyone who wasn't from holland, this was then used as a derogatory term by the british in the american war of independance and later by confederate americans as a derogatory term for those in support of "the Union" generally speaking northerners. later the term was used by pretty much any non american to refer to an american though particularly from the northern states.
did you see those yankees down the beach today?

Baseball team from NY. They have "won" 26 rings, but they still suck. They didn't win them. They bought them. Brian Cashman and the organization do their best to buy every slugger/steroid-user on the market. But even with all those sluggers, they lack team chemistry. And a decent pitching staff.

As for the fans, they are the worst types of fans in any sport (Cowboys fans close at 2nd). They're the team bandwagoners love to cheer for (especially because NY has so much money). They are very egotistical, stupid, and classless. The only things they can say are:

"GO YANKEES"
"Red Sox suck"
"JETER IS THE BEST LOLOL"
"1918"
"26 rings"

But they fail to realize that their past accomplishments don't mean shit now. They haven't won a ring since 2000, while the Sox have won 2 since then.

Yankee fans can keep on gloating about their 26 rings for now. But soon, their "loyal fans" will probably ditch them once their team continues to spend more and do worse.

A group of people that I can honestly say I am, in fact, not jealous of. They seem to be perfectly willing to display their desperation for material possessions and total lack of self-confidence in that they need to fabricate it by way of owning big things to attract your attention away from their small package, which was most likely caused by the steroids many of them use.

And yeah, I'm a Sox fan. Problem is, you can't really refute what I say by saying I'm biased, because I admit the Sox are barely better-almost all athletes are shallow, materialistic assholes. But you notice the Sox are the ones actually taking some care of their fans and not charging $1250 a seat.

Pull your heads out, Yankees; in the end it doesn't matter if you're good or not. You're not curing cancer, you're just playing a sport.
The Yankees may have won more championships, but they're also brilliant choke artists. Man it's fun watching people hop on and off the bandwagon on a game-to-game basis based on if ARod can very gayly knock a ball out of a baseman's hand and expect it to work or not.
