New York is going above and beyond to ensure Earth’s salt supply never runs out.
The city’s tabloids are famous for their over-the-top back pages, which typically house aggressive sports headlines. And the papers lived up to their reputations Monday morning in the aftermath of the Boston Red Sox’s World Series victory.
The Red Sox, of course, weren’t praised for dominating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Fall Classic. No, Alex Cora’s club was reminded it still has a long ways to go before it matches the legacy of the New York Yankees.

Has an entire city ever been so triggered?
But hey, it wasn’t all vitriol spewing out of New York on Monday. For what it’s worth, Newsday took the high road after Boston won its ninth championship of the 21st century.
Ultimately, it’s a good thing that Boston and New York fans are back to despising one another. The greatest rivalry in sports is at its best when there’s a genuine hatred between the two fan bases.
As for the players, the Red Sox are doing their part to ensure the on-field tensions remain sky-high when the rivalry resumes next year.
