Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh it can get wierder than that, and still be a bone of contention.

Consider that a "Yankee" is properly someone from one of the six states forming New England (Maine, New Hampshire. Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, or Connecticut), a "Yankee" isn't a generic term for just any American, and is most emphatically not a baseball player from New York City! The enmity between the true, original, proudly contrarian New England Yankees and those Big Appleites is real and goes beyond sports. I myself refuse to go there. I don't need to. With me, it's an article of faith that if there was anyone worthwhile in New York City, he or she would move to Boston.

And God help a Red Sox who become a faux-Yankee. Roger Clemens is getting what he deserves.
