Looking at a few Yankee forums today and this caught my eye. A Tigers fan started this thread:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Great Series fellas

Tiger fan here. I understand that this isn't the way you wanted to see the series end, but it was a good series and fun to watch. I don't hate the Yanks (Well......maybe A-Rod) so I enjoyed it all. I was happy to see Granderson play fairly well and If Verlander or Cabrera can't win MVP, I am rooting for Curtis. I also left the room every time Cano came to bat.

Anyways, there is no doubt that you will be back next year. So hats off on a good series and maybe we meet again next year.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

fk off

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"fan" dont even start w that. u come in here 'oh hey fellers great series, hard fought games all around, i know ull be there agaqin next year!'

this is all a round about way of shoving it back in our faces and trying to seem all nice about it. u know if the tigers lost not a chance in hell u wouldve made tis thread

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looks like whatever board that was taken from doesn't have many eloquent members. Or maybe that applies to Yankee fans in general...

I didn't catch the live game (layover in Effingham) but I just started he condensed version with field audio...and...the stands were giving it to our guys big time! NY and Boston got their due in '11...IMO

Just goes to show how many truly illiterate and crazy people there are in the world. I am finally coming to the conclussion that not everyone is even slightly educated and has positive intentions.

We don't know the circumstances... What if that poster was a real d*** through the first 5 games, and then mocked them with a post of congrats afterwards?

I hate NY as much as the next guy, but if ^this^ was the scenario I could see us here at MTS telling the guy pretty much the same thing.

There are plenty of Tiger fans at various sites that would make this look pretty weak. I'm not a Yankee fan but lived in NYC for a while. My experience was that they had a lot of great fans with stories about how their grandfathers and fathers introduced them to baseball that were much like what I've read here through the years. I love the old baseball cities though so maybe I'm just partial.

Thanks for that. I appreciate a friendly voice here.

My father, and grandfathers were Yankee fans. My mother's father was actually a fan when they were the NY Highlanders. He used to tell stories, and once actually referred to Babe Ruth as "the kid". ( I swear). I could kick myself now for not tape recording his stories, both of growing up in NY (after emigrating from Sicily), and of those very early baseball fan years.

I was born in the Bronx. I saw Mickey Mantle in his late years. I saw Thurman Munson when he came up as a rookie.

I'm no bandwagon Yankee fan who showed up in the late 1990's. I was there through a whole slew of basement years, and some great ones. I am a fan when they're awful. I am a fan when they're great.

All I'm going to add here is that you can find obnoxious fans of EVERY team. We don't corner the market.

Yankees fans are so much fun. One time before a Tigers/Yankees series, I trolled the AOL Yankees board telling them how great the Tigers were and ranting about the greatness of Richie Becker. As you can imagine, they ridiculed me, so I kept telling them that the Yankees were a pretty good team, but that the Tigers would sweep them (fully expecting that the Tigers would actually be the ones getting swept). When the Tigers did sweep, I got some pretty nasty e-mails.

I wouldn't do that today, but it was the nature of the AOL boards.
