I'm not entirely sure how I proved your point. I believe a better thing to say would have been, " Thanks, I proved my own point." Right now you seem to just be arguing with yourself. But that's fine... continue.
Deleted for your pleasure. Long live In-State off the front page.
I suppose I had better delete my quote as well then to remove all evidence
Yeah, I do think it's played out; at the least it's certainly overexposed, and has been since the Sox won it all in 2004. Next you thing you know every coed had a pink hat with a "B" on it and dude-bros with the "messy but I want it to look that way" hairstyle were sporting one size too small Johnny Damon alternate color road unis.
I don't need ESPN to tell me that Red Sox/Yanks is a big rivalry, but they've done their best over the last 5 years to shove it down our throat at every opportunity.
I'm well aware that the Cubs have one of the largest payrolls in the game, and it's about time. They're a big market team that was operated like a small market team for years, and have only recently (since 2006, when McPhail left) started to become a player when it comes to signing big-name free agents.
