Rooting for the Yankees is like... 

A Google search turns up the following comparisons:


Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for Microsoft.
Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for US Steel.
Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for Brad Pitt to get the girl.
Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for General Motors.
Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for Germany against Poland in 1939.
Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for the IRS.
Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for Goliath.


A recent addition by Jim Caple is


Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for Ticketmaster, only with better T-shirts.


I humbly submit this addition to the collection:


Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for the lions against the Christians.


And of course the final insult is: rooting for the Yankees is soooooooooooo Republican.

It's true. They have a payroll that is 55% higher than the second-highest payroll in MLB. They have a near monopoly on pitching, a scarce commodity. Three of their top four starting pitchers are free-agent pickups. It's all there for you.

UPDATE: Turns out I'm not the first to come up with the "rooting for the lions" bit. Back to the drawing board.

UPDATE: I don't see this anywhere:



Rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for anthrax.
