No one's quite sure when it started, but if one man has his way, it will be gone this weekend. Red Sox fan and Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen today calls for the end of the "Yankees suck" chant that has rung out -- with far less frequency in recent years -- where rowdy Sox fans are gathered.

In his column, Cullen makes a few strong arguments for the grassroots abolishment of the chant. Among them:
  • It's obnoxious, crude and moronic
  • We won in '04 (and '07), remember?
  • Chanting it at a Celtics rally? Come on
  • Makes us look like inebriated yokels

So check out the column, and tell us what you think -- should "Yankees suck" be shelved for good?
