Yankees fans locked in their position as the world’s most obnoxious fanbase after New York advanced to the ALDS playoffs on Wednesday night.

And while a normal, well-balanced person would feel inclined to congratulate the Yankees on their success, I am not that person, and I pretty much dislike everything about the Yankees. From their horrible, fair-weather fans to their gaudy pinstripes, they’re pretty much the worst thing since lima beans and overpriced IPAs.

But before we review some of the lowlights from the game in the Bronx last night, I will say something nice about the Yankees, because I am a good sport.

Yankee Stadium has good sushi. I ate at a restaurant inside the stadium once and it was very upscale and very swanky and I felt like royalty. That was a memorable experience, and I will hold it with me forever. That, and yelling at Jeter from behind home plate. That was fun, too.

Now, let’s take a look at some factual evidence to illustrate why Yankees fans are the absolute worst.


The ‘We Want Boston’ chant is cute enough. Just be careful what you wish for.

Though I can’t imagine anyone living near the stadium shared that sentiment:

But theeeeen they started throwing around beer for NO apparent reason, other than probably hating beer and nice things:

And they documented themselves being sore winners:

Then they combined the two worst things on earth: wasting beer AND being sore losers:

This completes today’s lesson on why Yankees fans are terrible. The Yanks might think they want Boston, but I can assure you. Boston wants them worse.
