Warning: Pointless rant coming up…
For some unknown reason, I see a plethora of Parisian idiots sporting Yankees gear. I take issue with this for the following reasons:
- These fools have no idea that the NY logo is the logo of a baseball team. Many of them think that it stands for New York, that they are rockin the coolest American shit on this side of the Atlantic. Most of them probably have no idea what baseball is.
- It just looks stupid. Picture it. Pansy-ass Parisian gangsta-wannabe wearing a sideways Yankee cap, in his skinny jeans, thinking “Putain, c’est mortel!”
- You ONLY ever see the Yankees logo. It just creams my corn that I don’t see a Giants logo anywhere. The French seem to fixate on the strangest things to associate with America. They embrace Oreos, for example, but are physically incapable of making a decent chocolate chip cookie.
So, men, if you are French and own Yankees gear, please don’t bother talking to me. I don’t run around San Jose in a Stade Français jersey, and I don’t pretend to be the #1 Bordeaux fan when I’m in New York, so you should afford American teams the same respect please and stop being such a poser.
