Even if you're just a casual sports fan, I encourage you to check out some of this seven-game series that begins tonight at Yankee Stadium. There are lots of good rivalries in sports, but I think this one is the best. Anytime these teams play something weird always happens (e.g. last year 84 year old Yankee bench coach Don Zimmer tried to tackle Boston ace pitcher Ramon Martinez during a bench clearing brawl.) For human drama and the undertone of hate between the teams, nothing can top it.
Bill Simmons over at ESPN has an amusing preview of the series. He asks the question: Is it good luck to be pooped on by a bird?
I'd be curious to hear from either of my readers who they want to win this series or if it's good luck to be shat upon by a bird.
