Heartwarming Yanks-Sox Story To Get Your Tuesday Off To A Good Start

"Police arrested a Yankees fan Saturday after he allegedly stabbed a Red Sox fan in the neck over an argument about their baseball teams’ rivalry at a restaurant in Branford, Conn., police said.

Monte Freire, 43, of Nashua remains in critical condition after John Mayor, 45, of New Haven allegedly stabbed him with a knife at the Chowder Pot Restaurant around 10:45 p.m., according to a news release from the Branford Police Department.

“Unfortunately, witnesses were telling us the disturbances emanated from a dispute over certainly that: the Yankees and Red Sox,’’ Captain Geoffrey Morgan said in a phone interview.

Mayor is facing several charges, including assault in the first degree. In addition, he is being held on a $500,000 bond. His arraignment is set for today, pending his release from the hospital." (story via Boston.com)

Nice!!!  High five for you, John Mayor!  I'm sure that asshole deserved it because, let's face it, there really is no argument about who the better team is when it comes to the Yankees and the Red Sox.  So obviously Mayor won that argument and then punctuated his victory with a good old neck stabbing.  That's just great hustle right there.

A diehard fan like that should be rewarded.  Somebody get Hank and Hal on the phone to bail this dude out and hook him up with some field-level seats for Game 3.

It's stories like this that make me proud to be a Yankee fan.
