New York Yankees: 5 Reasons Rooting for Yanks Is Fun, from Eyes of a Diehard Fan

I read this article by a former Yankees fan this morning and felt I just had to counter it.

He listed 10 reasons why rooting for the Yankees isn't fun. While a couple of his reasons were legit (the new Yankee Stadium catering to upper-class fans, for instance), there were several I vehemently disagree with (winning and the Yankees tradition, for instance—he complained about rooting for a constant winner and how the tradition doesn't exist anymore, that it's just money).

What that article really showed me was that the current crop of Yankees fans (those who became fans during or after 1996) is truly spoiled.

So here are my five reasons why rooting for the Yankees is still fun and why I was born a Yankees fan and will always remain a Yankees fan till the day I die (unlike the author of the article I linked to, who has since stopped being a Yankees fan). 

Why only five while the other writer listed 10? You only need five reasons to be a Yankees fan.
