Today the New York Red Bulls and New York City FC (that stands for Football Club, in case you didn’t know) squared off in an epic inter-city match on the pitch at Yankee Stadium. When you think about historic rivalries in sports, you think Yankees – Red Sox, Packers – Bears, Michigan – Ohio State, and Red Bulls – NYCFC. It is such a bitter rivalry that the fans are even fired up.
Instant reaction from this video is that the guy in blue is the worst. In typical soccer fashion, all talk and no action. Frankly I’m shocked the guy in black with the bucket hat didn’t take a dive from that “fight.”
I know the Steinbrenner’s want to make money, and having soccer and other sports in Yankee Stadium are a nice source of revenue, but do they have to have them during the baseball season? I can’t imagine they like seeing this go on. Doesn’t the Bronx have enough problems already?
