Well thanks for admitting that because most of the sox fans that I know wouldn't ever say something like that, they're too busy complaining about how much they hate the Yankees. But yeah, I completely agree about the rivalry thing. I look forward to the Yanks/Red Sox games every time they play..and a few years ago I went to an ALCS game at yankee stadium between the two teams and it was AWESOME. There's just so much energy in the crowd and tension between the fans and it's just such an awesome atmosphere.
I also have to say that I respect the Red Sox for coming back in this series and MOST of their fans, because in my opinion they have the most dedicated fan base as a whole.
