A Real Yankee Hater

Although it has been more than ten years since they have had a winning season, I'm not ashamed that my baseball loyalties lie in Baltimore with the Orioles but it is impossible to avoid the intense rivalry between Red Sox fans and Yankee fans. Here's a license plate spotted in Portland. I always thought that the DMV was supposed to pass on vanity plates that use offensive language. Looks to me like a fellow Red Sox fan signed off on this one.

    And it looks like you got a solid hitter for Fenway with Gonzalez. I am just an observer. Remember, I am an Oriole fan!

      Stan, we, Red Sox Nation, take sincere offence. We spend. We spend our money wisely....aside from JD Drew and Dice-K and Jose Offerman and.....okay I gues my point is we spend. We are certainly not inferior money-wise. Neither talent. We may not act as well as Jeter, but after all we have morals.

        I have worked in New York and have never seen a licence plate running down the Red Sox, I guess because New Yorkers don't care about them. That plate shows that New England sports fans are in awe of the Yankees, it is a sincere form of flattery and goes against what it is intended to show.

          As an Oriole fan, I am not fond of either team's ability to spend more money than anyone else. Although everyone enjoys watching the Yanks get eliminated from the playoffs, I do think that most Red Sox fans suffer from sort of an inferiority complex.

              New Kezar Lake Listings

              With the endless coverage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight two new waterfront properties that Kezar Realty has just listed. The first is a three-bedroom A-Frame located on the Lower Bay. The front deck is just steps from the sandy beach and has a great view of both the lake and the mountains. For more photos and property details, please visit the listing page here.

              The second property is located in a private cove on the eastern shore and provides outstanding views of Kezar and the White Mountains. A short and gentle walk from the screened porch to the dock. Recently expanded and updated, this home also has an unattached two-bedroom, one-bath cottage that is perfect for guests. For more photos and details, please visit the listing page here.

              Here's hoping that everyone has survived the highway gridlocks and TSA pat downs while on their way to Grandma's home. Have a great Thanksgiving!
