As a Twins fan, there is nothing more that I despise than the New York Yankees. Yes, it mostly stems from the complete domination the Yankees have had on the Twins (they swept the Twins out of the play-offs for the last two years). Nevertheless, as a sports fan, the Yankees represent all that is wrong with professional sports today.
