One of my favorite days of the year is here again! Yay for Opening Day!
I have always been a Phillies fan, but I married a Red Sox fan. For those of you that follow baseball, you know this is not usually an issue. Philadelphia is an NL Team and Boston is an AL team. They rarely play one another, and when they do, it is only one series a year.
Because of the lack of overlap, over the years I have become a Red Sox fan and my husband now considers himself a Phillies fan. Except when they play each other, of course! 😉
So, imagine our surprise when the 2015 MLB schedules were released and we realized (thanks to a change in scheduling) that the two teams play each other not once, but in two series in 2015–including on Opening Day. 😱
Now, Hubby and I are a just a bit competitive. We like to heckle, and we like to gloat. And the fan of the losing team may like to pout a bit. (We share our prediction on who that will be, based on what we saw in Spring Training, but anything can happen–that’s why they play the game!).
Luckily, tonight we are back on the same team–we will put away our baseball differences, pick up our cheerleader pup (who is named Cameron–as in Cameron Indoor Stadium, home of the Duke Blue Devils), and cheer our little hearts out during the NCAA finals–this time for the same team. 🙂
For the record, Hubby is used to living in a house divided. He is a Red Sox fan and a Duke fan. His older brother is a Yankees and UNC fan. Which says a lot about Hubby–he loves a good rivalry! 😉
