A Yankee Fan’s Response to A Sox Fan’s Ode to Mariano

I have to admit that I need to drink vodka on the rocks,
Whenever someone I know admits they like the Red Sox.

I just do not like them, it’s one of the things I can’t bear,
They strut around refusing to shave their disgusting facial hair.

There is one exception, someone I don’t blame
It’s because Yankees are his daddy, Pedro Martinez is his name.

He’s a top notch, a class act, the finest you’ll ever meet,
And it’s all because he admitted that the Yankees cannot be beat.

It’s hard not to like him although he’s a foe,
He helps the Yankees win games, He’s Pedro.

In pitching ballgames against the Yankees, well it’s understood
Pedro Martinez will always tip his cap to the Yankees because they are that good.
Yankee fans will remember him forever. To tell you the truth
I think Michael Kay still tells the story from his broadcasting booth.

Were he not a Red Sox player there wouldn’t be such a fuss,
Too bad you retired Pedro, we wish you could pitch to us! 
After Pedro Martinez tipped his cap and called the Yankees his Daddy last season, you knew Yankee fans weren't going to let that comment slide. These photos are from Game 2 of the ALCS on Oct. 13, 2004. Food vendors set up outside the park got into the act as well.
