Using "we" When Talking About our Favorite Team
I am completely opposed to using "we" when talking about the Yankees, or our favorite teams. I find it unfair to the players and members of the organization. There is a reason they are in the organization and we are not....they are just basically better at what they do. How many fans can hit a homerun in the New Yankee Stadium (well actually most of us at the new one)....but how many of us can pitch a shutout or even give up less than 4 runs a start? I like the whole "we are part of the team" theory....but we need to know our place as fans. They are the players and we are what drives the game.
