Before the Brawl, the Yankees and Red Sox Had One of the Longest Post-Anthem Standoffs You’ll See

Baseball Is Fun

Before the benches cleared (twice) at the Red Sox/Yankees game at Fenway last night, things got off to a much more friendly start.

After the National Anthem was sung, Andrew Benintendi (Red Sox) and Jordan Montgomery (Yankees) ticked the heated rivalry up a notch, with a good old fashioned game of (last-to-the-dugout) chicken.

It lasted so long the umpires had to get involved, and the announcers even joked that one of them might get tossed out of the game!

Before watching, who do you think will win?
