The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have one of the biggest and best rivalries in all of sports.
When the two teams clash, there’s always a little extra fanfare. Even the youngest of fans are not sheltered from the verbal combat that occurs. Video has surfaced of grown adult Yankees fans taking on a group of kids in Red Sox jerseys.
Yankees fans take on young Red Sox fans
In the video, a Yankees fan can be heard yelling at the kids repeatedly: “You were alive for al three of them!”
Meanwhile, a woman in a Yankees jersey stands facing the youngsters, taunting them and giving them an L. She is encouraged to “roast them while they’re young, they’ll learn their lesson!”
Rivalries that date back over 100 years evidently have no age limit, especially when you’re visiting the opponent’s ballpark.
We’re all for a little good-natured joshing, so long as it doesn’t get violent or abusive. Those youngsters look like they enjoyed the fun, and with the Red Sox winning three in a row over the Yankees, they probably got the last laugh too.
