By defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers four games to one on Sunday, Oct. 28, the Boston Red Sox won their ninth World Series in franchise history; their fourth in 15 years.
In addition to subversively singing “California Love”, the theme song of Dodgers star reliever Kenley Jansen, the Red Sox players in the clubhouse sang the Frank Sinatra classic “New York, New York”, the celebratory tune played after Yankee victories in The Bronx. It was a reference to Yankee outfielder Aaron Judge who had celebrated a win over the Red Sox in American League Division Series Game 2 by blaring “New York, New York” as he walked out of Boston’s Fenway Park. Red Sox players first sang it in The Bronx in response after having eliminated the Yankees in that series two weeks prior.
Of course, some of those on the Red Sox couldn’t help adding the F-word expletive to describe the Yankees during their World Series celebration. Take a look:
¡NEW YORK! ¡NEW YORK! 🎵🎶
