Three cheers for Joe Queenan.

From his op-ed, "Life in the Mean Seats", in today's New York Times, discussing proposals to ban booing (I'm not making this up) at sports events:

First, no booing high school teams. Then no booing the Fighting Irish. Before you know it, Mets fans will be getting ejected from their own stadium for booing the Yankees. And if Mets fans can't boo the despicable Yankees, why go on living?

Update: Twiffer asks, rhetorically, who would want to make A-Rod cry?

In my experience, more likely Yankees than Mets fans.
