Yanks vs. Sox
4 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When an obnoxious Yankee fan come into the bar after a Red Sox loss, he begins to spout off and malign Boston and the people in it. Karla has had enough and assaults him, leading to a possible lawsuit. This is less funny than the first two, but it is still fun.
