Yankees Ban Anti-Gay Song...

This is a couple weeks old, but it's worth mentioning.  It seems that it's become a tradition in Yankee Stadium for rowdy Yanks fans to single out fans of opposing teams and sing a bastardized version of the Village People's "YMCA" to them during the playing of the song.  I don't know how long they've done this, but based on this video clip, it seems that every Yankee Fan in the section knows the words to this spoof.  "Why are you gay?  I saw you sucking some D-I-C-K" are among the classy, inventive lyrics (just watch):  



Well, the Yankee organization got something right this season.  Thanks to complaints from offended fans, and to awareness brought by sites like Change.com, the Yankees have banned people from singing of this hateful song in their stadium.

    It's disgusting that this was prevalent enough that the Yankees organization was even aware of it. I hope it's a rule that will have real consequences if broken.

    Yankees fans need to be more mellow...I suggest the Christopher Cross classic "Arthur's Theme (You Can Get Caught Between the Moon and New York City)" as their new theme.
