Hey, Boston, Shut the F#%* Up!

Boston, I used to like you. I used to visit every couple of years, go for a long run along the Charles, eat some chowder down on the Fish Pier. But this year, something began to curdle inside me. The slobbery tears at midcourt (this was for Red!), the icy Papelbon glare (ooh, we're scared!), the creepy cult of (the genius) Bill Belichick and (the golden) Theo Epstein and (the dashing) Tom Brady and (the extremely fucking annoying) Yoooooooook... Enough. We get it. You rule the universe. Yes, it's quite an impressive run you're on here. (For a small city.) But remember, fifteen years ago, your teams sucked large donkey balls (Pats:5-11; Celtics: 32-50; Red Sox: 80-82). And because sports go in cycles, they will soon suck again. So relax. Try some humility. It becomes you.

I love it when New York fans try to preach humilty.

I've been to my share of games in Yankee Stadium during the Torre run (the first part when they actually won) in Giants Stadium in 2000 and in the Garden in the mid 1990s.

I don't remember seeing a lot of humility from the NY fans.

Your own medicine doesn't taste very good, does it?
