Here’s the scene: 7th inning, Nick Swisher at bat. As a Blue Jays fan, it is my duty to hate the Yankees. It is my priority to hate Nick Swisher. So I booed him. Heavily.
“Swisher sucks! Boo!”
I can hear a female Yankee fan behind me speaking to her friends about my booing of Swisher, which of course encourages me to boo even louder.
Then, I feel a pat on my shoulder. I turn around.
“What are you saying?” she asks?
“Swisher sucks,” I reply.
“What was that again? What are you saying?”
“I said Swisher sucks. He is terrible.”
She then points at her ear, where she is wearing a pair of dangling Yankee earrings.
“Sorry, I couldn’t hear you cause we’re twelve-and-a-half games up. You’ll have to talk louder.”
Sadly, I could not think of a comeback.
Well played Yankee fan, well played….
