Baseball season  has begun, meaning one of its ugliest rivalriesthe Yankees vs. the Red Sox—has been revived once again. This ad, which appeared on the New York subway, advises Yankee fans to "ALWAYS OFFER YOUR SUBWAY SEAT TO A PREGNANT WOMAN UNLESS SHE'S WEARING A RED SOX HAT." Yes, it's that serious, in case you were wondering. 

The WFAN show Boomer & Carton, which features one-time Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, is behind the ad. The sign isn't shocking at all, because if George Clooney and Scott Caan were willing to scrap over the Yankees and Red Sox in Oceans 12, why wouldn't the common man? Or woman?
