Lifelong Yankee fan here.
Let the hating begin.
But just know that I am a Yankee fan for very good reasons.
A) My father was a Yankee fan growing up. He was born in 1923. Like many baseball fans I follow the team I was brought up with.
I live in New York City.
C) I have been a Yankee fan since I was a child. My first game was in 1971 at the age of 5. I am no "bandwagonner", "frontrunner" or fair weather fan. They were terrible when I was a child, languishing in last place and I loved them anyway.
D) It's my religion.
Go ahead....start the hate fest. I'm used to it. Winning a lot eases the pain.
