Eugene… in a Yankees cap? What’s going on?
So for many of you, you might not be aware that I’ve been a regular guest on Korean English language radio for TBS on its show Sports Weekend. All readers of this blog should be well aware that I absolutely abhor the New York Yankees. I hate them so much, that on a trip to New York, I just had to pose for this picture at the stadium store in the old Yankee Stadium…
But let’s get real, it’s just sports, right?
I don’t hate their fans, I enjoy friendly banter with other sports fans. Usually though I get laughed at for supporting losing teams like the Orioles and Redskins. On Sports Weekend, the show’s New Yorker homer host SJ (A Yankees/Jets/Rangers/Knicks fan) has continually talked smack about me because I like the Orioles, Redskins, Omiya Ardija, Nexen Heroes, and other teams that seem to never get any luck. He always asks how I can support losing teams and mocks me for wearing apparel indicating that I am a fan of those losing teams. It’s all in good fun.
Well today I went on the radio wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap. When I explained why, I said that because his Yankees were knocked out of the playoffs, thus they are a losing team, so I can finally wear their stuff!
A good laugh was had by all.
Sports related smack talk is so much fun.
