Here is the weekly rant. As always, it's decisive, uncompromising, and rude. Just like Max Power.
Okay, so the question today is: "who is the most annoying fan-base in sports today?" Many of you may have your own personal opinions based on being harassed, beaten, or neglected... and if you're a Broncos fan cheering for Denver at Oakland Coliseum I wouldn't be shocked to hear you hate Raiders fans... but that's probably just because you've had someone shit in your mouth at the Coliseum... but at least the Raiders fans had justification for dropping a deuce in your Broncos-loving mouth, you were after all cheering for the Broncos in Oakland Coliseum. You just should have known better.
That being said, the winner for most annoying fan-base is a landslide winner that I'm sure many people can join in my sheer contempt with... the winner is New York Yankees fans that have never lived in or have any reason for claiming to be New Yorkers. Perhaps the best example of this is none other than Tom Brady who is from Northern California yet rocks the Yankees cap and claims to be a fan as if he were brought up in the Bronx and had a role in the movie Kids. I don't care what supermodel he nails or how many Super Bowls that guy racks up in his career, he is officially a piece of shit. I seriously think there should be a Michael Vick-style backlash about this, but apparently the majority of the American public feels that being a New England Patriot and wearing a Yankees cap is totally cool even though you're from San Mateo, California. Hey... to each their own.
Now, I'm sorry Non-New Yorker Yankees fans, there is NO excuse for claiming to be a Yankees fan if you are not from the immediate New York area. NONE. I've heard it all too. "Oh, my grandfather got me into baseball and HE was a Yankees fan so...." Or my personal favorite, "oh, I started loving the Yankees when they sucked in the mid to late 80's so I'm a real fan." Fuck you you're a real fan. What?! So they had like five bad seasons, you jump on the bandwagon and I have to listen to your shit even though you're from Oregon.
And is there any other any fan-base that can't take a bit of shit without freaking out? There's nothing like going up to a Non-New Yorker Yankees fan after them losing a playoff game for the first time in like 8 years and just mentioning the fact they lost and suddenly being involved in a brawl while you were in line for your morning coffee.
Now, I have a very minimal amount of love for JUSTIFIED Yankees fans, but if you're not from the immediate New York Metropolitan Area and you still root for the Yankees, you should really just go home and either: 1) shoot yourself or 2) well, again, let's just have you shoot yourself for the betterment of mankind. Trust me, the rest of the baseball watching world would do nothing but applaud your exit from this world...
