Picking on someone your own size

Fans of the Red Sox and the Yankees often debate over which team has more tolerant fans. This story is one for the Yanks. According to reports out of Baldwinsville, a town of 7000 in Onondaga County near Syracuse, a fourth grade student was forced by his teacher to turn his CC Sabathia shirt inside out because the teacher is a Red Sox fan. While Peter Addabbo’s classroom is decorated with Red Sox memorabilia, the nine-year-old at first thought his teacher was kidding but quickly learned that the request was a serious one. Other students mocked Nate Johns for his inside-out shirt, and the school’s principal is now investigating the incident. You stay classy, Red Sox fans.
