One Small Step For Me, One Giant Leap For Red Sox Nation

One of the givens about going out with a born and bred New Yorker is that the trash talk is flying all night. But I think I had the last word during our ride home on the T.

Me: I’ll sleep with you if you denounce the Yankees.
Him: WHAT? No.
Me: Okay.
Him: Well…
Me: Mmm-hmm?
Him: I mean, they maybe weren’t the best team this season.
Me: That’s true.
Him: Is that good enough?
Me: No.
Him: They, um…
Me: Maybe you could start by listing all the teams you can think of that suck.
Him: Okay…the Washington Senators, the Brooklyn Dodgers…
Me: Teams that suck, not teams that no longer exist.
Him: …um…the Yankees.
Me: What about them?
Him: They suck. They suck, okay? THE YANKEES SUCK.

There’s a guy sitting across the aisle from us wearing a Sox hat. Now he’s staring right at us, wide-eyed, and he says simply, “That. Was. AWESOME.”

    You are amazing. Plain and simple. The fact that you managed to engage a stranger in your conversation and leave them feeling awestruck by your brilliance? You deserve a prize.

    So did you hold up your end of the bargain? It’s only fair.

    HA! Fantastic! And yes, I too would like to know whether you held up your end of the bargain. I hope you weren’t (literally, har har) taking one for the team there.
