Is it wrong to mess with Red Sox fans?

by The SUBWAYblogger (writer), New York, Manhattan, April 29, 2007

So yesterday afternoon, SUBWAYblogger went to the Yankees vs Red Sox game (which by the way the Yankees finally won). Getting up there was a complete nightmare. Like a complete idiot, SUBWAYblogger forgot that the A and C lines were scheduled to be all F-ed up.

First, there’s no C trains at all. Damn. Then, the A trains were running local when in fact they did stop. Many stops were simply being skipped all together. At the time, the A trains were running nonstop uptown from 59th Street to 125th Street. That’s a long, nonstop haul. So if you were looking (as SB was) to get on at any point in between, you were out of luck. Usually, you can take an A train to 145th Street to catch the B or D.

Anyway, as described, the trains were a complete nightmare. So there were tons of people that had no idea what to do because they aren’t subway riding regulars. When people asked, SUWBAYblogger helped them find their way. Basically, it was “Don’t worry. Just follow me.” So I ended up having a little trail of followers.

Then, there was the ride home…

Feeling a bit relieved after our Yankees victory (finally), we were headed back to the train. There was a group of complete a-hole Red Sox fans causing trouble the whole way. The kind of people you just want to smack.

At one point, they turned around and in my general direction asked, “Does the 4 or the D train go to Grand Central??”

Here was my chance. “Take the D train!” I yelled back. Gratefully, they headed for the D. So there’s a certain amount of satisfaction in sending a posse of Red Sox fans all over Manhattan.

Just some innocent fun. Hell, I could have told them to take an UPTOWN D train, and that would have been even more fun.
