It's rare, but yes, it happens. I'm from Boston so I liked it.

I really like how my thread turned into baseball!! I'm a Dodger fan and realized they just didn't have what it took to win. With the Astros beating the Yankees, it's now time for the World Series. I want to see the Nationals beat the Astros!

In other drum news, I did like that Rogers kit in Blue Onyx. Still, to me, condition is everything and I wouldn't pay $2k for this kit. For the asking price, I want a cleaner kit that I don't have to completely disassemble, clean and polish. That's just me!

What is that huge mark on the floor tom? Could it be a reflection? It looks like an enormous imperfection/scratch.

I didn't, but that's OK! Since this turned into a baseball thread, I did a few gigs on Cape Cod years ago, and everywhere we went, there were signs in restaurants and bumper stickers on cars spewing Yankee hate. You Sox fans are really vociferous, aren't you? I don't see the same kind of blatant hatred around here from Yankee fans toward the Red Sox.

You've got to be kidding, Yankee fans are the worst. During one of the games scumbags were throwing water bottles and garbage at Josh Reddick playing right field, so much that Hinch threatened to pull his players off the field if it continued in the next game. They had to make an announcement to the fans to refrain from throwing objects on to the field.
During the post game show when Houston had won in NY, you could hear Yankee fans shouting Houston sucks. Several people who were at the game in NY say they were harrassing anyone wearing an Astros jersey, one woman was called a ***** and she'd better watch herself.
This was going on during the Twins series too.

I'm sure stuff like this has happened. I just haven't seen it.

It's a reflection. Odd that it's there in all pictures, but the shape and location changes.

I noticed this, too. Concluded it was just a reflection.

I've hung around Yankee Stadium and the bars and restaurants there for years, and I never see anyone get harassed these days, unless of course they're jerks, which of course all Boston fans are! kidding, kidding! (at least a little...)

Honestly, even Boston fans are treated pretty well these days in the Bronx.

You can always find a drunken idiot or two in the stands of any ballpark, but these days, Yankee fans are quite polite. NYC is a different town than it was in the 80s/90s...
