A northerner who hates The South, the Confederate flag and everything The South stands for.

A yankee is especially someone from New York City or New England.
If you don't like the way we do things down here you yankees are free to take I-95 north back to New York Shitty!

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?

a person who lives north of the mason dixon line, basically any state that fought on the union's side in the civil war (the northerners)
My mom doesn't want me to go to school up north because i'll meet a yankee and marry him.

The best team ever. Count the trophies. AND defenitely better than the Red Suck.
The Yankees won 26 world championships.

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.
Yankees suck.

A people who migrate to the south because there are more jobs, a stronger economy, better food, and better weather. They also insist on bringing their loud, rude, arrogant, ways with them all the while complaining that home was so much better. They are in a perpetual frantic rush. They talk very fast. They refuse to assimilate to southern culture but expect southerners to do things their way. They are horrible drivers. They do not give firm hand shakes. In the North eye contact is considered a threat.They find the word "Ya'll" offensive but use the word "Youse" in the exact same context. They are tacky dressers. Women have teased hair and outfits that southerners let go of in the 80's. Men rarely open doors for women. Men wear gold jewelry, loafers, and slacks but look down on southerners for wearing boots and jeans. They don't want to live in the South for fear of being "Land-Locked" but many don't swim. They hate Country music because they have no idea what Real Country Music is. Yankees think pick-up trucks and those that drive them are ignorant. They can't conceive that some one might want to drive a pick-up simply because they don't want to drive a car. They don't know that traditionally the term "Red Neck" is a compliment. They don't know the difference between a Red Neck, White Trash, and a Good Ol' Boy or which one a Guido is closely related to. There is no such thing as Northern pride and therefore they can't even begin to understand Southern pride.
Did you see that guy tailgating me at 90 miles an hour? He drives like a Yankee.

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.
