Recently I read an article on Momsomnia, your mind just won't shut off and this was apparent to me as I lie awake at 3 in the morning. I'm blaming this 'yet another awesome side-effect of being pregnant' on the fact that I forgot to rock my Yankees jacket this morning.
I am ecstatic that baseball season is here once again. I've recorded all the upcoming Yankee games that I can see, am contemplating the MLB package (anyone have it? is it worth it?) and already looking at tickets for early June when the Yanks are in town.
The only thing missing is my beloved Jeter. It will be bittersweet watching the games without the Captain but as life goes on so must we all. I did ask my wife if I go into labor at the Yankees game in early June, (I'm due June 19th) if we could name him Jeter; she said no, go figure.
And then there's ARod, homeboy was getting cheers and boos each at-bat during spring training. I watched in anticipation to see if he could still hit....he can. I hate that he did what he did and never apologized for it. I am one to forgive but just admit to your mistakes. If he brings the team demeanor down I vote for him to take a hike, if not then I'll support him....but I won't be buying a #13 jersey anytime soon.
Here's to a great season!
