In love and baseball

Well, the baseball season has finally started and The Yankee Fan and I couldn’t be more excited. Not only do we get all the baseball in the world to watch, but it means we get to go back to work at my beloved ballpark, together! I’m really looking forward to it.

That being said, obviously he and I have a slight rift in our relationship when it comes to our baseball loyalties. We’re very light hearted about it (I mean, he works at his rival ball park!). I watch Yankee games with him on Sox off-days and we only tease each other slightly. Since we’re both bigger fans of the actual sport, we appreciate our separate loyalties.

To make this season more interesting, we’re placing wagers on every Red Sox – Yankees series there is this season. We’d going to have some stakes, but we’re (or maybe it’s just me) having a hard time deciding what the stakes should be. I’d like to do something different for every series. I mean, we’ve got the basics, like wearing the opposite jersey, and stuff, but I’m at a loss for what else to do.

Keeping it clean (since I’d like to be posting the results on my baseball blog as well), what are some ideas we could use for our bets?



Here’s some shameless self advertising. Sorry in advance.

So here’s the thing- I’m a big time baseball fan. Big time. Primarily Red Sox, but baseball in general. I could go on and on about it, describing my story to you and brag about all my special things I’ve done because of my fandom.

But that’s not what I’m here to do.

I was nominated as Female Baseball Fan of the Year. While the nomination is an honor as it is, I actually made the finals for my story. There were several minor categories, like best fan gear, best stadium photo, etc, but I actually made it to the finals for the big award.

Now what I need are votes.

The voting is open until November 25th and I’ve posted the link here for you. There are a few pages for the minor awards before you hit my story. I’m #52 on the last page (you’ll see my name, my photo, and my story- you’ll know it’s me).

If you could vote for me, it would be AWESOME. Don’t feel that you have to and there’s no way that I’d know if you did or didn’t, so no pressure at all. But if you could vote for me, I’d be super ecstatic. 🙂

Thanks in advance!!
