New York Yankees
Last time I went to New York, Yankees paraphernalia was littered all over the ground. Well, I just asked Lordy Lordy Lord what it was all about. And He replied, "My child, you are in New York, and you must understand that here they worship the Yankees baseball club."
Well, now I understood perfectly well. The New York Yankees may not be my favorite team, but I can respect the fact that people like them, or idolize them, as it were. Still it doesn't give cause for any geopolitical strife, if you quite catch my drift. The New York Yankees as allegory.
