R.I.P. Baseball Season 2010
One highlight of this season is that I was successfully able to think of one instance when I would root for the Yankees, much to my brother-in-law's cheeky grin. Here's the scenario: If I was at the game with my sister and brother-in-law (legit Yankees fans from NYC), at Yankee Stadium with my baby niece Ruby on my lap, and the Yankees were playing the Los Angeles Lakers- I would root for the pinstripes; but only once. I might give off a "Go Yankees" but just the one time. And it might be mumbled under my breath. And I might throw the word 'candle' in at the end. But, I feel it's a starting step toward baseball reconciliation with 'that side' of the family. In 2011, however, we will all be living in D.C. and have decided the Washington Nationals will make a great peacemaking team.
The other highlight of this season was going to a Red Sox game on Cinco de Mayo. My BoSox didn't give me much to cheer about this year, but that game was pretty sweet. That picture was taken before I went to Thailand.
