So, we are discussing the Red Sox/Yanks rivalry, and how Fluffy hates the Yankees because they are a better team. We're going back and forth when he brings up the clinching argument: The Yankees spend more money on their payroll then any other.
This argument always gets me riled up, but especially when it comes from a team that spends 50 MILLION dollars just to SPEAK to a player. So I thought long and hard(so to speak) and in about 10 minutes, my rebuttal was complete. This is a complete mock up of the conversation. It may or may not have gone this way, but since it was between Fluffy and myself, there is no one that can disprove it, and since it's on the internet, it must be true:
Fluffy: Dude, the Yankees spend like 1/2 a billion dollars on their payroll. Of course they are going to win. They are buying wins.
Me: 1) Thats they dumbest argument ever, Frenchy. And 2) Why do you hate Republicans?
F: Shut up dude. You're an idiot. Doesn't New York vote Democrat? And didn't Hillary Clinton, the uber-dyke of all Democrats used to be a Senator in NY?
M: No man, I'm serious. You are totally a Democrat.
F: How do you figure?
M: Let's see. You hate the Yankee's. One of your arguments is that they spend too much money. The Yankee's spend so much money because they make so much money.
F: Yeah, cuz they charge like a thousand dollars a ticket.
M: And people pay that. Therefore, the Yankees must be a Capitalist organization, and since they are prospering due to that Capitalism, you hate them. That makes you, and every other person that hates the Yankees because they spend too much money, a fucking liberal loving, Obama sympathizing, Peace prize winning, Birckenstock wearing hippie Democrat.
And that's why the Yankees are Republicans and the Red Sox are hippie douches.
