A little about where I come from (the Northeast, not the Bronx though), and perhaps why I am not there anymore:

They started chanting a two-syllable word to summarize this conclusion. First they chanted it in reference to the Red Sox fans. Then they chanted it in reference to the Red Sox players. Then they chanted it in reference to nothing, just for the aesthetic satisfaction of it. Art for art’s sake.”
