The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have a historic rivalry dating back past the Great Bambino. Boston lifted the curse in 2004 after coming back from 0-3 against the Yankees in the ALCS en route to a World Series win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
And yet, the rivalry lives on. It’s not always respect-driven either.
Bad blood between Yankees and Red Sox fans exists to this day, and when the two teams came together for a recent series, tempers flared.
In a video from Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports, two female fans didn’t pull any punches.

It’s unclear if these girls are cheering for the same team, against each other, or have some other sort of discord, but one thing is very clear: they don’t like each other.
We’ll just give a shout out to the guy attempting to break up the fight while holding his beer with one hand and managing to not spill a drop.
New York managed to take two of three games from the Red Sox to tie Boston for first place in the AL East.
