I'm a big Red Sox fan and definitely enjoy the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. This case, however, shows that even the best sports rivalries can be taken too far.

The heartbroken girlfriend of a Red Sox fan killed when a Yankees zealot allegedly mowed him down with her car says her dead beau had not been arguing about baseball with the driver, contrary to media reports.
Beaudoin's devastated girlfriend Donna Dionne, 29, told the Herald yesterday, "Matt was sticking up for a friend who had been punched by this woman. It had nothing to do with a big baseball rivalry. These stories are wrong."
Dionne said her boyfriend tried breaking up the fight, but when Hernandez got into her 1997 Dodge Intrepid and he saw a Yankees sticker in the back, he and friends jokingly chanted "Yankees suck!"
"He was just mocking her," said Dionne, of Hudson, N.H.
