NEW YORK (WFAN) — A YouTube clip currently making the rounds is proving, once again, that the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry knows no bounds.
A Boston fan, shown in his kitchen, is trying to get his young son to pledge allegiance to the Red Sox.
The boy, with toy bus in hand, remains steadfast: “But I love the Yankees!”
“You can cry all you want,” says the father. “You’re on your own, pal.”
Tough love apparently doesn’t work on this tiny Beantown Bomber. He bawls, “I want to love the Yankees!” as a sibling sidles up to console him.
“I’m not making him cry, he’s making himself cry,” replies dear ol’ dad.
The family rivalry reaches its climax with this hilarious exchange:
“Repeat after me: I love the Red Sox,” says the father.
“No, Yankees. I don’t like … the Red Sox!”
“OK then you’re going to have to find a new place to live!”
