20-something guy wearing Red Sox hat to girlfriend: There’s no way we can have kids in New York. They’d be going to school with a bunch of brainwashed Yankee fan offspring, and every night we’d have to be telling them bedtime stories that end with “and they all lived happily every after, except for Derek Jeter, because he’s a fuckin’ asshole.”
Young woman on cell: I’m from New York, but live in Boston, but want to move back to New York… It’s hard being a Yankees fan surrounded by fucking Red Sox fans. I can’t do it anymore.
Overheard by: I agree…
Subway conductor: Yankees fans. This is a Bronx-bound express D. This will not stop at Yankee stadium. Transfer at the next station to the B. (20 minutes later) Yankees fans. I promise you this train will not stop at Yankee stadium. You can transfer to the B at the next station. Or you could just not go to the game. The choice is yours.
20-something mother to another, trying hard to look knowledgeable: The Yankees and Mets are playing two games today, the first at Yankee stadium and the second at Fenway, where the Mets play.
