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.

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.

A person from the Northern part of the United States of America who carries on the long Yankee history of activism and reform. These include the movements to abolish slavery, and the suffragist movement to acquire equal rights for women (See: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Yankee Abolitionist and Susan B. Anthony, Yankee Suffragist). Logic, reasoning, and education are valued highly by Yankees and used to champion freedom and equality for all Americans. Yankees have a strong sense of civic duty and culturally are known for straight-forwardness, time management, frugality, and thinking on their feet. Ivy League schools in the North are often associated with Yankees and have yielded many of America's top leaders and thinkers.
"The Yankee abolitionists welcomed slaves from the South that had traveled the Underground Railroad."
"The Yankee suffragists sacrificed their safety and livelihoods to win the vote for women."
"Her Yankee sensibilities led her to become a leader in the movement."
