Red Sox Fans Are from Mars, Yankees Fans Are from Uranus by Andy Wasif is a tongue-in-cheek look at the complicated love-hate relationship between Red Sox and Yankees fans, how and why it developed, what accounts for the animosity and the grudging respect, and why it colors every fan’s outlook and continues to dominate the baseball landscape.

  • The arguers and the arguing types
  • The psychology behind the hate
  • Speaking different languages
  • Understanding our emotional needs
  • Avoiding an argument
  • Dealing with loss
