In Other News Water Is Wet


I've always believed that if you lift up a Yankees cap, you'll find an asshole underneath. Well, I was wrong and I want to apologize to anyone I've offended in the past. It turns out you'll find a criminal. Take it away New York Times:
A curious phenomenon has emerged at the intersection of fashion, sports and crime: dozens of men and women who have robbed, beaten, stabbed and shot at their fellow New Yorkers have done so while wearing Yankees caps or clothing...
But Yankees caps and clothing have dominated the crime blotter for so long, in so many parts of the city and in so many types of offenses, that it defies an easy explanation.
So there you have it. Remember this the next time you're out at the yard or having one at a sports bar. If you see a dork in a Yankees cap, go ahead and beat him like a pinata in juvi hall on Christmas morning. You might just stop a crime!

I look forward to the day when I get mugged by a guy that's simultaneously ripping my Giants and talking about 27 titles. Good times.

Yankees fans usually stand down to Raider Nation here in SoCal. No problems here.

Is this what the Times has become?

100-something Yankees caps over an unknown number (probably in the 5-figures) of "serious crimes" does not indicate any meaningful correlation. There were probably more people wearing Nikes.

It does imply that Mets supporters are more civil than Yankees supporters (of the major ethic groups around here, the Mets' base is more heavy on Jewish, less heavy on Blacks and Italians and about even on Irish and Latinos...make of that what you will) and that the Yankees have a lot of ill-informed/bandwagon/glory hunter supporters. But, the relative quality of the neighborhoods where the respective fan bases dominate would better explain the disparity.

Besides, it isn't the dork that's committing the crime. I'd venture that the lot of the readership would have a hard enough time whupping the pictured, let alone any real thugs.

Hey Boko, do you take off pearls when you go to sleep or do you continue clutch them all through the night on the fainting couch?

Bokolis said...

Any pearls I ever clutched probably weren't mine.

When I faint, it's usually with my d!ck in my hand.

It won't actually have success, I consider this way.
