We Bronxites sure know what it’s like to be disrespected even on our own turf. You’d think that after all our recent turbulent history, we’d have some degree of pride and self-respect. I say, if the Bombers have zip loyalty to The Bronx, and the only reason the Yankees are in our borough is for their selfish, greedy $financial advantage: Then ByeBye & Good Riddance to Randy & George, who never seem to espouse pride in our shared Beloved Boro. Especially if there isn’t any substantial financial advantage to us, the Residents of The Bronx… then screw them! The Bronx has and will always rise again! Of course, having grown up at 165th & Grand Concourse, I am destined 4ever2B a rooter for the hometeam. That’s because I love the home, not because I necessarily love the team. ***mricle***
