Taking Die Hard Fanatacism Too Far

By Greg Fertel On August - 16 - 2009

Let me start out by saying that I consider myself a die hard Yankees fan. I go to 20+ games per year and probably only miss 10-15 games on TV a season. That said, I try to stay optimistic.

I am a Yankee fan because I was raised that way, but I also enjoy being a fan. I think it is fun to love a team and root for them. That is what fanhood is all about.

I was lucky enough to get a partial season ticket package this season a row in front of my seats from the previous few seasons. By the way, the price of each of the tickets went down $2. Now, instead of sitting in the last row of the upper deck of the stadium right behind home plate, I sit in the second to last row.

This move has brought me the misfortune of having a particular fan sitting right behind me who has made multiple games for me and others unpleasant. It all started the second game of the Yankees versus Cubs spring training series.

It was a beautiful day, and everyone was ecstatic to be at the new Yankee Stadium. To be honest, my focus wasn't on the spring training game; my focus was on seeing friends, family, and checking out the new stadium. I don't think you can fault me for that.
