Yankees Jersey in Boston?

What would happen if someone wore a Yankees jersey in Boston?

As former MLB commissioner Bud Selig once said, "You can talk about the Dodgers and Giants, the Cardinals and Cubs, the Packers and the Bears, Ohio State-Michigan, but there's nothing like the Red Sox and the Yankees." As you can tell from Mr. Selig's quote, it's pretty obvious that the Yankees and the Red Sox hate each other. So who in their right mind would wear a Yankees jersey in Boston?
Well, this brave, young lad decided to take charge and sacrifice himself for the weakhearted.

And it wasn't just any Yankees uniform.

It was Alex Rodriguez's, one of the most hated player in the whole league. He decided to wear a Rodriguez jersey and walk around Fenway Park, the home and heart of the Boston Red Sox!
As our brave soldier changed into his Rodriguez Jersey, a biker passes by and warns him.

"I wouldn't wear that here."

But as soon as he starts walking around the streets of Boston, he comes across a sign that he probably did not want to see in a Yankees jersey.

New York Sucks!

People stopped in the midst of their meals to boo our brave young soldier.

And it didn't simply stop with boos. Bostonians in cabs, Bostonians on the street, even Bostonians on their phones did not hesitate to yell:

Yankees suck!

Then he runs into one jacked Bostonian who says:

Why you wearing that shirt man?


You got the wrong f**kin shirt on dude.


Yeah man, why you in Boston wearing that shirt?

And it doesn't simply stop with some threatening comments.

BOOM! POW! HOLY SH*T!

He got punched in the face for simply wearing a Yankees jersey!

Well, at least he was brave enough to do something that most of us would not have been able to ever dream of doing! And thanks to him ladies and gentleman, we learned a very important lesson today:

Never, ever wear a Yankees jersey (or anything Yankees related) in Boston!

Here is a full video of what happened when he walked around Boston wearing a Rodriguez jersey! Enjoy!

The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?

Pedro Martinez's TOP 3 Fights!
Pedro Martinez recently got his number (#45) retired by the Boston Red Sox organization. It is the first time the Red Sox retired a pitcher's number. Even though Pedro made his Major League debut with the LA Dodgers, he spent most of his prime time with the Red Sox. He was with the organization for seven seasons and accumulated 117 wins and 37 losses with an ERA of 2.52. Career Stats: 219W 100L 3SV ERA 2.93 SO 3154 WHIP 1.054 During last year's Hall of Fame ballot, Pedro received 91.1% of the votes from the Baseball Writer's Association of America giving him the ticket to put his name up in Cooperstown along with baseball's greatest. To honor his induction to the Hall of Fame and the retirement of his number I have prepared... The Top 3 Fights by Pedro! 1. September 24th, 1996 - Montreal Expos vs. Philadelphia Phillies The first fight that I have prepared is when Pedro was with the Expos. He threw a beanball to Phillies' hitter, Jeffries. Then, when Pedro came up to bat, Phillies' pitcher, Mike Williams threw a threatening pitch and received an initial warning from the home plate umpire. However, when the next pitch hit Pedro, Williams got rejected from the game. But...it was too late and Pedro charged the mound. 2. April 13th, 1994 - Montreal Expos vs. Cincinnati Reds I personally don't think this fight was initiated by Pedro. Pedro was once again with the Expos when this fight happened and he was on his way to pitch a perfect game before the fight broke. He needed five more outs...but instead hit Reggie Sanders with an inside fastball. Sanders however overreacted (I think he was pretty pissed off after being struck out two times all with an inside pitch) and charged the mound. Thus, the benches cleared and our good old Pedro got hit and squished by a bunch of players. Oh and yes. He lost the perfect game as well. 3. October 11th, 2003 - New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox (Game 3 of the ALCS) This was probably Pedro's worst moment in his Major League career. The biggest rival in sports history were competing for the championship title in 2003. During Game 3 of the series, Pedro hit Yankees' outfielder Karim Garcia and things were got heated. Then, former Red Sox pitcher, Roger Clemens threw a beanball to Manny Ramirez and the benches cleared. Baseball legend Don Zimmer ran towards Pedro and Pedro just grabbed Zimmer's head and threw him to the ground. Zimmer was 72 at the time. I mean Pedro was a great baseball player for sure, but you should never....I mean never throw a 72 year old man to the ground. Let's take a look at this again. I mean can you believe it? So disappointing... But once again, I still think of Pedro as one of the greatest pitchers of all time. He looks small compared to other big league pitchers but when he starts throwing, he becomes untouchable. Pedro is actually 5' 11'' and weighs 170 pounds. But whenever he stood up on the mound, he went into beast mode. He wasn't afraid to throw an inside pitch and threw as hardest as he could. That was probably why he hit so many batters and got into so many fights. But it is also the reason why so many batters were intimidated by him despite his height and weight. I would like to congratulate Pedro on being inducted to the Hall of Fame and getting his number retired by the Red Sox. Congrats Pedro!
Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring?

An Ever-Growing Dilemma: Traumatic Brain Injury in Football
Image source: pexels Football is a beloved sport for many Americans. It is full of excitement, passion, and competition. Unfortunately, the game has an ever-growing dilemma that is increasingly difficult to ignore - traumatic brain injury (TBI). Recent studies have revealed the long-term health consequences associated with playing football, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). For this reason, players need education on the potential forms of brain injury and at what stage they need a traumatic brain injury lawyer to prove the severity of brain injury. This blog post explores the realities of traumatic brain injury in football from its prevalence among all levels of play to potential solutions for reducing head trauma. We will also discuss why understanding traumatic brain injury laws should be a priority for everyone involved in football whether as a participant or fan. What is traumatic brain injury? Traumatic brain injury is a type of brain injury that occurs when an external force causes damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injury can happen when the head unexpectedly and violently hits an object. It is also prevalent when an object penetrates the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can vary greatly, depending on the severity of the injury. Mild symptoms may include a temporary loss of consciousness or confusion. It can also be severe, such as coma or amnesia. In some cases, traumatic brain injury can lead to long-term problems with cognition, movement, sensation, or emotions. Treatment for traumatic brain injury varies based on the severity of the injury. For milder injuries, rest and over-the-counter pain medications may be all that is needed. However, more severe injuries may require hospitalization and intensive rehabilitation for the individual. There is no definitive answer to preventing traumatic brain injury in football players. Some suggest a change of rules to the sport. For example, banning tackling in practice or banning certain types of hits during games may help reduce the risk of TBI. Others believe that improved equipment design, such as better helmets that better protect the head from impact, may also help reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury. That is why it is important to know some traumatic brain injury laws to find what is truly permitted in the sport and when you might need to consult a personal injury lawyer. Traumatic Brain Injury Laws The case of a traumatic brain injury may form the basis of a legal inquiry. This is applicable in cases where the actions or inactions of one party cause another to sustain a brain injury. Legal inquiries can proceed based on the following theoretical laws, these may include: A case of negligence Medical malpractice Assault Trip and fall All of the aforementioned above may necessitate legal action. For instance, in the case of trip and fall or slip and fall, such cases may occur from uneven floors, clustered walking surfaces, or inadequate lighting. In any case, alongside medical personnel, you need the expertise of a traumatic brain injury lawyer to ascertain the causation of the accident. This ensures all medical records, facts, and evidence of your brain injury are well covered so you can focus on recovery. The Dangers of Traumatic Brain Injury Football as a sport traditionally values toughness, and this often results in collisions between players. As the number of reported concussions in football continues to rise, so does the concern over the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury. TBI can lead to a wide range of problems, including: Memory loss Depression Anxiety Problems with coordination and balance In severe cases, it can even lead to dementia or death. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the severity of a traumatic brain injury. Many of which include the force of the impact and the angle at which the head is hit. This determines whether or not the person loses consciousness. Repeated head trauma is another major factor, as it can lead to cumulative damage. It is impossible to eliminate the risk of traumatic brain injury in football. But some measures can be taken to reduce its occurrence. These include: Better helmets and mouthguards Stricter return-to-play guidelines More comprehensive sideline concussion protocols The long-term effects of traumatic brain injury are also disconcerting. Studies have linked TBI with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Other research has suggested that TBI may contribute to the development of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a degenerative brain condition that has been found in many former football players. The potential consequences of suffering a TBI are serious enough that every effort should be made to reduce the risk of injury. This starts with proper training and equipment for all levels of play from youth leagues to the professional ranks. It also includes adopting rule changes aimed at reducing contact between players, for example, banning or limiting certain types of contact. How to Prevent Traumatic Brain Injury? The best way to prevent traumatic brain injury is to avoid head trauma. This can be done by wearing properly fitting protective equipment, such as helmets and mouthguards during all sports and recreational activities. Some steps can be taken to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury if head trauma does occur. For example, prompt medical attention can help to ensure that any resulting swelling or bleeding is quickly controlled. In addition, rehabilitation and cognitive therapies can help those who have suffered a TBI to regain some or all of their previous functioning. Conclusion Traumatic brain injury in football is a growing dilemma that cannot be ignored. Even with all of the advances in safety protocols, athletes and their families remain at risk as long as they participate in contact sports such as football. It is essential for everyone involved from parents to coaches to medical personnel to take steps to ensure that player safety remains paramount. No one else has to suffer an injury due to negligence or ignorance. We must keep searching for ways to protect our athletes and make sure that this ever-growing dilemma does not go unresolved.
