Am I a bitter Mets fan? Yup. Sure. Those words are synonymous.
Before the existence of Facebook, I could live with the Yankees winning. I wouldn’t be happy about it, but whatever.
However, I can’t stand all of these assholes that suddenly become die-hard Yankee lovers during the postseason. I’VE WATCHED MORE YANKEES GAME THAN THEM THROUGHOUT THE FUCKING YEAR, AND I HATE THE TEAM.
I mean, sure, if you’re from New York, it’s cool if you want to support them. I have no problem with that. But to start posting it on Facebook as if to prove that you are “legit,” is just fucking ridiculous.
Sorry, I’m getting emotional, but words cannot express how happy this Yankees loss makes me.
Inevitably, any Yankees taunting results in Mets bashing.
Only one thing pisses me off more than bandwagon Yankees fans suddenly becoming die-hards during the playoffs, and that is bandwagon Yankee fans insulting the Mets.
For somebody that knows as much as about baseball as I do, and for somebody that has only missed about 5% of Mets games for the past fifteen years, and for somebody that is currently wearing Mets pajamas pants at this very moment, it is flat-out insulting. Not because I’m offended that my team sucks – I know they do, that’s a certainty – but because of the source.
I told a friend the other day that a hearing a bandwagon Yankees fan insulting the Mets is equivalent to what it must have felt like for a white property owner during the early 1800s to be insulted by their slave. (Note: slavery is the darkest mark in the history of human existence and an absolute disgrace to humanity… I am simply just making a comparison to how drastic this situation is.) That’s how much it bothers me. Unfortunately, In this case, whipping them back in retaliation is not legal (and rightfully so!)
If you want to decipher the real Yankee fans from the shitty-ass bandwagon fans, just look at Facebook. The ones taking the high road and complimenting Texas for simply being a better team and playing a better series are the real ones. The ones that go straight to attacking the Mets… they’re the worst.
And that’s why I fucking love when the Yankees fail. Because as a life-long TRUE Mets fan, I’ve had to deal with all this Yankees bullshit my entire life.
Watching the “faithful” Yankees fans flood out of the stadium in droves for two consecutive nights during the ninth inning was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.
To the real Yankees fans: I personally apologize for all the Mets fans’ berating that you have had to put up with over the past 12 hours. It’s not directed towards you.
To the bandwagon Yankee fans, you know, the ones that don’t even actually care that the Yankees lost, because they’re not real-enough fans to have invested any type of emotion in them to begin with: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOUUUUUUUU
