I hear the "Hate Yankees" and "Evil Empire" all the time and it gets old and, sometimes, hurtful. I am a Yankee fan, even though I live in Oriole (Nats?) country. But I grew up in the Bronx and saw Mantle and Berra, and other childhood heroes.
In this case, Mr. Schmuck was clever and balanced. I appreciate the tone and can't argue with his commentary.
As to fans. I was coming home on the light rail and there were two guys eying me. There was no doubt they wanted to inflict damage to me. Other than wearing a shirt or hat, I do nothing to incite such a reaction. I will cheer for a good play or run. But never make obscene comments or rub in a victory.
On the other hand, I have sat next to O's fans and we enjoy a good laugh with gentle humor and good conversation. Baseball is to be enjoyed and obnoxious fans on either side can go elsewhere (football?).
May we live in peace, enjoy our rivalries and this beautiful game of baseball.

Why fans personalize entertainers in any venue is speculative since the proposition that you dislike a stranger speaks for itself.
Therefore it follows that the author's column title also speaks for itself!
