The Red Sox blasted 'New York, New York' in the clubhouse after eliminating the Yankees

The Red Sox beat the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday, 4-3, to advance to face the Astros in the ALCS. The win took some crunch-time pitching from Craig Kimbrel, who quashed New York's bid to tie the game in a very tense and dramatic ninth inning. 
After the final out, it was time for the Sox to let loose and exhale ... and go celebrate in the clubhouse. Of course, this wasn't just any regular postseason win. Red Sox vs. Yankees is one of the premier rivalries in all of sports, as we all know, so there's a lot at stake. 
A win of that magnitude requires a next-level celebration ... so the Red Sox cheerily blasted Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," the Yankees' victory song, in the clubhouse as a soundtrack to their revelry:

This is high quality, especially given the nature of this particular rivalry. But it takes on an extra layer when you recall Yankees slugger Aaron Judgealso enjoyed the same song while leaving Fenway Park after New York's Game 2 victory ...

This rivalry? As strong as ever.
