Today, you opened your big mouth (), something that sports fans everywhere have become accustomed to. However, this time the idiocy that came out was worse than ever. Let me get this question out of the way immediately - why do you think that Jets fans are the same thing as Yankee fans? Lets go to the quote:
“The Yankees suck this year and (New Yorkers are) bitter and mad and they’re making excuses over that and now they got Tom (Brady) going down, so New York’s excited,” said Schilling while appearing on Boston’s WEEI radio network Tuesday. “It’s unfortunate, but when you crawl to the top of the pile you will have people trying to knock you down."What an odd leap of faith you took there, Curtis Montague. You assume that because the Jets play with an "NY" on their helmet, and the Yankees play with an "NY" on their baseball caps, the fan base is one and the same? In case you forgot, there is another football team in NY called the Giants. You remember them, right? They are the team that made the record 18-1 famous and shocked the world by beating your butt-boy Tom Brady's Patriots in the Super Bowl last season. As a matter of fact, in a non-scientific poll that I took recently, there is a strong correlation between being a Yankee fan and being a GIANTS fan.**
I may be coming off a little bit "bitter and mad" here, but really, I'm just confused. Tom Brady goes, down with a knee injury, New York papers create catchy headlines about the injury and how it relates to the Jets and suddenly Yankee fans are bitter and mad? Don't you have a team to be
To conclude, I have to admit that I agree that a lot of Yankee fans are bitter and mad right now. When considering your asinine statements and the fourth place position in the AL East Standings, that is understandable. As a matter of fact, I started this blog to make fun of a lot of these "Yankee fans" you speak of who hold on to their nostalgic feelings from the 90's dynasty. I just don't understand how you connected that to Tom Brady's injury. Sadly, I may never know the answer to that question.
P.S Did kids in school make fun of you because your middle name was Montague? Isn't that a town in Long Island?
** I took no such poll, but I know a few people who are Giants fans and Yankee fans.
