, translated from the German means “. . . taking pleasure in the misfortune of others . . .”.
Like in 1966, when the Red Sox finished ninth in a ten-team league - which was terrible. But the Yankees finished tenth. I had no idea that the word existed, but schadenfreude
kept me from going off the deep end.
From the vantage point of almost a half-century later, I must admit that while I’ve only had a few opportunities to experience schadenfreude
in association with the Yankees, it’s been wonderful every single time.
I write about schadenfreude
in my new book about the Red Sox
, now in print.
And I'll like to share with you my highest Red Sox high
, which occured against the Yankees.
