Mets–Yankees rivalry

Never elated when someone’s oppressed, never dejected when another one’s blessed.”   —   Alexander Pope

(Old Al would just never understand the Mets/Yankees and Cubs/White Sox fan rivalries.  Whenever the Yankees lose, on the same day that the Mets win, it feels like the Mets won a doubleheader, to most Mets fans.  And, Mets fans don’t feel guilty about this, because they know Yankee fans  generally feel the same way, when the shoe is on the other foot.  Maybe not the best counter-analogy, because oppressed is much harsher than depressed, but society and the media push a lot of Us vs. Them scenarios on us, all the time.  And, far too many of us don’t stop to think about the implications of this kind of thinking.  In the grand scheme of things, the baseball/sports indulgences are tame compared to the actual life and death issues.  Be well, do good, don’t hate.)   —   YUR
