More Yankees Hate

On the way into work today, I heard all this bullshit on NPR, and it wasn't the usual: it was the Yankees talking about how 'hard' it is to win a championship. And Hank Steinbrenner talking about how nine years is a long drought for them. Maybe for other teams no big deal, but 'for us.'

Nine years during which they won two pennants. What an entitled bunch of assheads: they basically go into each season assuming Hank and Hal have bought another championship, and any other conclusion to the season is somehow an injustice.

Meanwhile there are teams that go a century without a world championship. Is the idea to see which team can win at baseball, or is it really just a contest to see which owner can be in the biggest market, with the deepest pockets and the least conscience?
