Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was booed Sunday in New York by Yankees fans when his image was seen on the stadium’s giant TV screen while sitting behind the visiting Los Angeles Angels dugout.

Although it may seem to be a bit premature to express displeasure with the back-up QB, it is not unusual when you consider that Yankees fans are also traditionally supporters of the New York – football – Giants and hate the Jets.

But Tebow is in good company as New Yorkers have also booed such home town greats as Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Joe Namath.

Super Bowl hero Eli Manning has heard the boo-birds. The President, Governor, Mayor and anyone else holding political office who foolishly elects to attend a sports event in the Big Apple are all routinely subject to derision by the fans in attendance.

Of course, even New York takes a back seat to Philadelphia fans where sport spectators in the city of brotherly love have jeered both the Pope and Santa Claus.
