A-Rod Did Steroids!


Last night’s Red Sox game featured a nice outcome for me, the Sox taking their 8th straight win over the Yankees (7th this year) but I won’t get overly confident just yet because the last few years this exact scenario has played out several times. Early in the season the Sox roll over the Yankees, later in the year, the Yankees get their turn and then, at the end of the season one team leads the season series 10-9 or 10-8.

However, I did enjoy one bit last night when, in the 9th while facing Jonathan Papelbon, Alex Rodriguez was serenaded by the Fenway faithful with some derisive heckling. As he batted the cheer went up all around Fenway, “YOU DO STEROIDS,” now, I found this very amusing, and I appreciated the elan of the crowd but I will say, I’m a bit disappointed that that was the best the crowd could come up with.

I expect more creativity from the crowd, but I do appreciate the enthusiasm.

    Nice – criticize it and be disappointed with the lack of creativity – and offer no suggestion?

    The Fenway crowd has, like the teams on the field, outclassed the NY crowd since 2004. The last good NY chant was “who’s your daddy?” and that didn’t work out too well. meanwhile, the fenway crowd had given Rivera a standing ovation for sucking, and come up with gems like this….I gotta say – they are taking the NY crowd to school for the past several years.

      Ok, that’s a fair point, you’re right, I didn’t offer a better solution for a crowd chant. How about “you’ll never be loved”. Although that’s a hard one for the crowd to get going together.

      I will also agree that the yankees fans suck.
