New Hampshire in the Morning

Cranky Yankees. They’re everywhere

M – So Monday morning comes, it’s 25 degrees and no one is talking about our beoved Red Sox, whose season begins Friday. As in THIS Friday! I took it upon myself to stoke the hot stove fires by posting a Facebook question for Sox fans, asking “if they thought closer Jonathan Papelbon had anything left in the tank or is he toast?” Before you could say “Bambino,” Carolyn, a New York Yankees fan posted: “Who cares? Go Yankees!” Within minutes, trash-talking baseball fans took Carolyn’s bait and the gloves came off. I must admit sadly, that the Yankees posters sported a bit more pi** and vinegar that Sox fans. I guess if you had to live in a city with over 9 million other souls, you’d be a Cranky Yankee, too. That said, we’re just days from the Red Sox first game, and I ain’t feelin’ much juice in the air. Let’s hope “Pap” has enough juice in his right arm to retire a few more 9th inning batters than he did last year.
