Kevin Youkilis Is Disappointed In You, America


Kevin Youkilis pulls no punches when it comes to expressing his feelings. Whether it’s showing us how he feels, as he has chosen to do above, or telling us how he feels. So of course, he wasn’t shy at all expressing his disappointment in you, me, and the rest of the nation because we haven’t been showing up to WBC games.

I don’t think we have enough pride in this, Youkilis said yesterday at Team USA’s workout. It’s kind of a sad day – and I know it’s a tough time (economically) to buy tickets – when you see that. I don’t think there’s as much pride in the USA as there is for these other countries. There was a whole section of Dominican fans (Sunday) night just here to watch baseball. I think we’re losing a little bit of pride for, quote, ‘America’s national pastime.’

Ok, I can go along with that. But tell me you’re not gonna blame the US team’s lack of motivation in the WBC on the lack of fan support. Please tell me you’re not. You are aren’t you?

It definitely hurts a little bit to know that you’re always the away team in your own country, he said. There are some good people out there, but it would be nice to have a lot more of those people chanting ‘USA,’ holding up American flags. That’s the one thing we didn’t see much of the other night – there were more Puerto Rican flags than American (flags).

If there was 45,000 people it would definitely get the guys going a lot more, he said. From playing in front of that every night, it gets you going. There are days when you’re dragging and the fans lift you up with the support. I wouldn’t say that’s a factor in games we’re not winning, but it’s more (about improving) the environment overall.

Ok, I get it. If the environment is ideal, it’s easier to win these game. Kinda like if they’re no cops or security in a bank, it’s easier to rob the bank. It’s all about ideal environments. Everything is so clear now. Thank you for the knowledge, Kevin. I never looked at it this way. And to think, we were actually calling ourselves fans. We should be ashamed of ourselves. Can you possibly find it in your heart to forgive us?

    Maybe because we see high-level baseball in this country EVERY DAY and because individual teams mean more to people in a baseball sense than the national team, which has been a part of the consciousness for….exactly two years now.

    Get over yourself, Youkilis.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Maybe if American sports fans could come up with something other than the idiotic and somewhat too WWE-ish “U-S-A! U-S-A!…”, or if patriotism hadn’t been co-opted by neo-fascist right wingers in recent years, or if the past 8 years gave us something to be proud of in ourselves there would be a lot more people actually proud to be American. I am personally fine with cooling it for a bit with the whole “USA must dominate and crush all who oppose it in all facets” for a few years. Sorry Youk. I’ll root for you at Fenway but until then, I’m watching college hoops on my couch, not somewhat glorified spring training baseball for $40 a pop and $8 a beer.

    First Papelbon speaks up … when Manny is 3,000 miles away, and now Youkilis shows he has quite a large vagina between his legs. The BBGs (that’s “Baseball Gods”) are none too pleased. I’m selling the Sox at market prices, for size.
