Red Sox fans are the second most annoying in the world. The MOST annoying fans are Chicago White Sox fans. They're like Red Sox fans covered in the rust of Cleveland (haha, when's the last time we made a rust joke about cleveland?)

-Nick Grin
I've heard stories, though, about how rude Philadelphia's sports fans can be.
  • They once booed Santa Claus.
  • Someone accused Eagles fans of booing QB Donavan McNabb the day he was drafted, though I haven't yet been able to confirm this story.
  • "Wild Thing" relief pitcher Mitch Williams received death threats from irate Phillie fans after allowing Joe Carter to hit the come-from-behind, walk-off home run that won the 1993 World Series--the threats effectively helped ruin his career.

That actually wouldn't surprise me since people in Philadelphia seem to be rude in general. I've flown through the Philly airport twice and I will NEVER fly through there again. Even if my fare price doubles, it will be worth it to avoid philly.

Of course, walking nearly a batter an inning over his entire 11-year career certainly didn't help.  He certainly earned his nickname "Wild Thing". Shocked

Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport passenger lounge in Bozeman, Montana, while awaiting their respective flights.
 
 One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer. Another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show & the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Montana State University from the Middle East.
 
 Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.
 
 The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face.
 
 The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.
 
 Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, "At one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few."
 
 The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, "Once my people were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?"
 
 The Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a smooth drawl.  "That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's  a-comin'."

I'm sorry - who won the Central Division this year?  Right.  Not the White Sox.  I won't talk smack against the Bostonians (who are the most annoying fans in sports); but you've got no wiggle room with me there, Windy City fellow.  You and your Sox and Cubs can tuck your tails and go!

Hey man, I lived in Boston in 2003 (for the choke) and 2004 (the world series).  I've seen the fans when they're high and low.  And yes, generally speaking, Boston Red Sox fans are the most annoying in the world.  They call themselves intelligent fans, but nearly every Bruins and Celtics game was punctuated with a round of "Yankees Suck" from the crowd.

Bostonians tend to think of themselves as intelligent in general; the trouble is that they equate liberalism with intelligence. Parroting Michael Moore makes one no more intelligent than parroting Pat Robertson. I think having the world headquarters of Christian Science has gone to their heads.

Bostonians tend to think of themselves as intelligent in general; the trouble is that they equate liberalism with intelligence.

And many of them are intelligent - there are lots of PhD's in the city because there are lots of colleges (which means lots of graduates and lots of professors).  But the arrogance comes from many factors, including Boston's rich history, it's central role in American Politics over the last 250 years, it's academic environment.  While New Yorkers don't think anything exists outside of the city, Bostonians don't think civilization exists outside the city.  Combine that with the huge mood swings (caused by the erratic weather and the horrible road system), and you get stressed out folks who need the Sawks as their escape.

{edit}

Oh, and let's not forget the outrageous land values as a source of arrogance and pride; Boston frequently competes with New York for the most expensive city to live in award.

Yeah, Back Bay is among the most expensive real estate in the world, but perhaps that's because it was underwater a few years ago.

Haha.  Yeah, right on.  I always loved the tour guide's rules for Boston roads: (I was a part of 4 orientations at HC - 1 as a newbie, 3 as an Orientation leader) if it's straight and flat, it was water; if its curvy and hilly, it was land.

I know the regional interest in this game probably extends no further than the home cities of Portland, OR, and Ogden, UT, but did anyone happen to see, buried deep in the college football section, the score of the NCAA Div. I - Tournament Subdivision (formerly I-AA) football game between Weber State and Portland State?  The Portland State quarterback threw 9 TD passes, AND STILL LOST! Shocked  The box score of the game looks something like this:

Weber St.    3  35  21  14 - 73
Portland St.  7  20  21  20 - 68

The 141 combined points scored in this football game is an all-time single-game record for all levels of NCAA play.  I imagine that the 1189 yards of combined total offense has to be close to a record, as well.

Talk about Cub fans!  That phrase "Holy Cow!" was made famous--though he certainly didn't invent it--by one of the most famous Cub fans of them all, Harry Caray.  May he rest in peace.  (I can still remember, from my days watching the Cubs on WGN, that cardboard(?) caricature of a cow shot full of holes that he had in front of his broadcaster's booth.)

You know what's refreshing?  In about 4-4.5 months (at the posting pace we've been at for the last 4 or so) this thread will get to return to its original purpose: counting down to a big posting milestone (in this case, 200k).

Just a random observation I made at the Bass Pro headquarters in Springfield MO today-

Crocks are hideously ugly on adults, but look cute on little kids.


What say you?

"Crocks" refers to either (1) shoes

or (2) storage jars.

Neither one was ever meant to be worn.

I think he knows about the shoes (he does live on a college campus).  What he probably doesn't want to get into is OB's comparative study of kids and adults and their footwear... Wink Grin

The Dodgers are finally getting a classy manager with a track record for success.  Move over Tommy L (and I know any movement is hard for 'ya) - LA finally has a manager to rally around.

Little did any of us then know what the thread would become, how it would grow and grow and wander in its ever increasing page count....
