Let's mock some Yankees fans!

Jun 1, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

But it’s OK, because the guy doing the mocking is Jason from IIATMS, himself a tremendous Yankees fan.

He just has a problem — as do I — with people wearing ugly red licensed gear, Yankees caps with rhinestones and grown men and women wearing Yankees jerseys with names — either the players’ or [shudder] their own — on the back.  Of which there are many in the linked pics, all of which Jason took without leaving his own section at the Yankees-Indians game.

And this isn’t Yankees-hate. This is just a good old-fashioned shaming that will serve to benefit the Yankees Universe in the long run. You have to do that sort of thing from time to time so as to maintain social order, don’t you know.

    Thanks for “getting it” Craig.
    The Yankee uniform has remain unchanged for eons, yet adults –I put this only on adults– feel the need to get goofy with putting names (including their own customized) on the back.
    I’m all for supporting our armed forces, and being there yesterday was a great experience, being able to have my boys see and hear the accolades given to those in service. But Yanks fans wearing red hats, red jerseys… just terrible. Again, my complaint is aimed at the adults.

    No matter how shabbily attired, 46,000 left the stadium happy yesterday.

    Another ridiculous post about the Yankees! Are you paid extra for each message that you write about the Yankees?

    That was fun, thanks for the link Craig, any chance to bust on fans that aren’t Philly Fans is greatly appreciated.

    I was looking forward to seeing this blog entry when I thought it was making fun of baseball gear that is the wrong color. That’s a fashion choice that needs to be mocked over and over. PINK? NO team has pink as a color. Maybe if your put your Reds hat in the wash at the wrong temp. That’s it. Irish flag colors? Sure, beer is a tradition at the game, but it isn’t Guiness.
    But, when it is a fellow baseball dork trying to become baseball’s go fug yourself and mock all manner of seatmate’s looks that is a different story. Who cares if someone has an odd haircut? Who cares if some guy decides to go cover his head with a camo (non yankees) hat? Who cares if another guy has a fat neck and some girl is showing a bra strap? Jason @ IIATMS and the women at Go Fug Yourself, I guess.
    So yes. Please, continue to take pictures of fat odd looking people all around you. And, no it’s not superiority complexes at all that force you to show how much better you are than others because they have worse haircuts than yours. That’s just holding up for tradition. How dare they have a fat neck? That’s not a tradition for the Yankees at all!
