Are you the biggest Yankees or Red Sox fan?

The best fried chicken joint in town is ironically enough owned by a huge Red Sox fan. On Christmas Eve this year, I stopped in to pick up an order for our triennial family get together (about 40-50 people).

I walked into the small waiting area and announced in a LOUD voice -"Hey Johnnie, I'm here to pick up an order for Beckett and Lester !"

Johnnie took it with surprising good grace, as there really isn't any good comeback for a Red Sox fan after last year. And besides, the small waiting area was full of customers.

Surprisingly, aside from Bucky F___g Dent my favorite Yankee/Red Sox memory happened last season and I think about it often with shock and surprise....It all started as one of my "bucket list" wishes being an avid BLEACHER CREATURE at Yankee Stadium a dream of mine before I left this earth was to go and watch a Yanks/Sox game at Fenway....Now mind you, I took one of my very best friends and fellow bleacher creature with me. Meg and I together are a force to be recokened with when it comes to Boston Fans invading our space in our section, in OUR stadium. oh yes they get the jeers and the Boston Sux cheers. So on our way to Fenway, we discussed the first fight we would have considering my friend chose to wear her 'fist' tee shirt with a hand that um let's say has a pinky, thumb, and a peace sign minus one on it ..... and boston underneath it! Anyway, after asking our Lawyers to 'stand by' lol, off we went to Boston....Upon arriving, we got a few traditional 'strange looks' but we were loud and boisterous and here's the memory.... PEOPLE WERE WELCOMING US AND TELLING US TO ENJOY THE GAME, AND HOPING THAT WE 'LIKED' THE STADIUM.....shaking our heads, we were trying to "hate" but finding ourselves strangely 'liking' well i wont go that far , strangely finding these people puzzling. As we sit in the stands its gets stranger! Meg stood up puffing her shirt out showing off her 'emblem' when the Boston fan next to us got up went out and bought us a beer!!! After singing Sweet Carolyn, for the 7th inning stretch 'far cry from YMCA' another man next to us asked us how we were enjoying the game and liking the stadium....We were DOOMED, we couldnt have a good FIGHT there if we wanted to ! hahaha. Which surprised me. And not one yankee sucks chant , not one arguement, we LOST, but worse yet we went home confused. hahaha. Im sure there are other Yankee fans whove gone to Boston with the OPPOSITE effect, but this was the weirdest and BEST day we ever had....I think of it often....Georgette Miller......born & bred in the Bronx. Yanks fan forever.....

Attention all die hard fans of the Yankees and Red Sox. We have a great opportunity for you. Here at YES we would love to hear your best stories about the greatest rivalry in sports. What's your favorite memory of an instance that was very personal to you, while attending or watching the Yankees and the Red Sox play? Do you as a Red Sox or Yankees fan have close interactions with family, friends, or spouses of the enemy team?

We want to hear all about it right here! The best stories will be chosen and we here at YES will give you an opportunity to tell your tales on-camera for an upcoming Yankees-Red Sox game!

It was Tuesday, October 3rd, 1978 at around 6am in the morning that I was in my kitchen of my Mom and Dad's home as a 15 yr old kid having his morning Captain Crunch cereal for breakfast when in comes Bucky Dent to see my Dad who was Bucky's theatrical agent at the time getting ready to drive Bucky to the studios of Good Morning America with David Hartman to interview him after his dramatic homerun he hit against the Red Sox in that one game playoff in Boston the day before. I asked Bucky how he felt and he said "Alan, I could have been the hero or the goat but this time I wasn't the goat and just got lucky". I then asked him if he knew it was a homerun once he hit it and he told me "that he thought he hit it well but not nearly enough to clear the wall and that he wasn't sure until he hit first base". Of course Bucky then went on to win the 1978 World Series MVP that year as the Yanks were once again World Champions for the second straight year. I was in complete "awe" of Bucky that morning and all my friends could not believe he was in my house that morning. I will remember that morning the rest of my life for sure and Bucky and I still keep in touch to this day. What a great memory...

No offense but this story sounds like bs.... Bucky Dent's in your kitchen the morning after he hits the home run....

See my story here: Post 22 on page 3 is the story encapsulated.  One of the other posters assisted me with getting the pictures to post.  The article was reported by him to help get the pictures to work.  By the end of the story, the guy I refer to figured out I am a Yankees fan.....

I remember  going to the old orginal stadium growing up and sitting in the right field bleachers. My Father took my 2 older brothers and I to around 12 games a year on Saturdays.

At that time they still did single admission double headers and allowed you to bring your own food and drinks. My Mom would pack us a picnic lunch and we  get there early enough to see batting and  fielding practice.

I would see Mickey Mantle and later Bobby Murcer doing their outfield drills and all the kids are screaming at them to get their attention.

We  used to go to 2 or 3 of the Red Sox  games and of course they were intense. With guys like Lonborg pitching and having to face Yaz is was not at all fun.

I have to say I hated the Orioles more. They killed the Yankees all the time. That is why I agree with Francesa, You hate the Red Sox , but you hated the  Orioles more from 1966- 1975.  As far as I am concerned the Red Sox and Orioles  can't lose enough for me.

Being a Yankees fan it’s an MUST to hate the Red Sox.  I’ve been to plenty of Yankees vs Red Sox games at the old stadium.  The best game at the old Stadium I’ve ever watched was game 1 of the ALCS 2004.  I still have that ticket stub.  Mike Mussina was perfect for 6 innings.  The stadium was going nuts.  Even through Pedro Martinez wasn’t pitching that night the crowd was still chanting “Who’s your Daddy” in reference to comments that Pedro Martinez said to the media.   The Yankees had an 8 to 0 lead the 7th inning.  I don’t think Hideki Matsui gauged the fly ball towards left field during the 7th inning that was hit by Mark Bellhorn who broke up the perfect game.  From that point forward the hitting machine of the Red Sox went wild.   It was scary first had witnessing the Red Sox coming back and being down by 1 run going into the bottom of the 8 inning.  The biggest hit of the game was Bernie Williams hitting a double to give the Yankees a comfortable 3 run lead.  I still to this day never understood why the Yankees didn’t want to bunt to move Curt Schilling off the mound to test out the durability of his torn tendon.  I will admit I’ve not yet attended any Rivalry game at the new stadium.   I’d like to one day. 

  Within the past 2 years my hatred for the Red Sox has greatly intensified.  When I’ve entered the Yes network Fan of the year contest during the 2010 season to my wildest dreams I never expected my “Yanekesland video” to be shown outside of  I was shocked that wrote about me and linked my video on their site.  I was very appalled at first.  Especially when they took one of my photos and called it “photo of the day” Let’s just say the comments there users said about me wasn’t nice.  From that point on I’ve decided whenever I get a chance to mock the Red Sox I shall utilizing Social Media.  So for me hating the Red Sox has become more personal.

Ok so my story goes like this......I was chosen by MLB fans as the last Yankees Sprint All Together Fan in 2011. Being chosen was awesome, I was told that I was going to do the Narration for the opening of the Yankees Red Sux game on the MLB Network.  The MLB network also gave me 2 tickets to the 9-23-11 Yankees vs Red Sux game which was rained out. I got lucky in a way since my wife was not able to make the Friday game. However the game was rescheduled for Sunday night. My wife made it to the game and the segment aired on 9-25-11 before the Yankees Red Sux game. The Yankees lost that night. Very depressing! Knowing that I was connected to the rivalry by the smallest thread made it a memory I will never forget. The memory is not about the game itself, it's about being their with my wife. Watching the greatest team to ever take the field......The New York Yankees!

Over the last 40 years, I can not single out any Yankees Red Sux moment that has meant more to me, then when I proposed to my wife on 9-11-05 on the Yankee Stadium scoreboard. The Yankees won that day with a first inning HR by Jason Giambi and 7 innings of 1 hit baseball from Randy Johnson. Mo had our hearts pounding in the 9th and got the save as usual! Oh and she said YES!

The Yankees Red Sux on field moment I will never forget can be summed up in one word............Boone!

I am the Ultimate Yankees Fanatic!
