Ted Williams is a big part of the reason that it's always been cooler to be a Sox fan than a Yankee fan.

I know, I know... take your 26 ####### rings and shove them up your ####### ass.

I know, I know... take your 26 #### rings and shove them up your #### ####.

Not physically possible, at least for a Yankees fan. Now, for a Red Sox fan (assuming they *had* 26 rings), maybe. Most of them did have their heads up their #### #### for 86 years.

Williams much cooler than Joe D.

I don't have a horse in this race, but banging Marilyn Monroe is a pretty tough trout for a fisherman to hook.

Joe D. then also told her to get out of his house.

Ted banged a few models in his day, too.

And he also didn't insist on being called the greatest living ballplayer at public introductions.

Williams was what John Wayne tried to play in the movies.

BTW, Montville's book on him is great.

and, you know, as far as we know Ted Williams didn't beat his wife.

Joe D did not hit .200 in the 10 biggest games of his life.

Here we go, here we go, here we go....

Williams/DiMaggio...DiMaggio/Williams...Finkle/Einhorn...Einhorn and Finkle...

Joe DiMaggio ate at Dinky Donuts...Teddy would never have done that.

Therefore, Ted is better. See? This is easy.

Williams much cooler than Joe D.

In perpetuity it would seem (at least above the shoulders.)

Underappreciated Joe D nuggest, his teams went 9-1 in World Series play.

That was Barra's argument for DiMag in one of his books.

But I'm glad that drunken Yawkey trade never took place.

Ted Williams taught flying in WWII and flew a jet in Korea.

Joe DiMaggio, for 3 years left waitresses in greater Honolulu wondering why they hadn't gotten a tip and then played the classic jealous jerk when his wife told him about her USO appearances in Korea.

Point, Ted.

Williams much cooler than Joe D.

This is true, but Mickey Mantle is much cooler than both.

Ted Williams aspired to have people call him the "greatest hitter who ever lived." Joe D made contractual arrangements for such things to happen for himself.

Also: folgers.
