The Yankees vs. Tampa Rays
Katherine and I headed to Yankee Stadium tonight for the game. She was a Tampa fan amidst a sea of Yankees; I was just there to watch the game. My understanding is that the Durham Bulls (her hometown minor league team) funnel into the Rays so she knows a lot of the players.
The game was fun. Of all the sports, baseball is the only one that I really get. And I’ve always preferred watching it live to t.v.
But, I must say that the best part of this game was the behaivor of the fans. The Yankees did not play well so we got to listen to a lot of booing — not at the Rays but at the Yankees for sucking. When the Rays got a home run, with the bases loaded, this guy behind us kept yelling, “What the f*ck is going on? What the–” etc. He eventually got so fed up he started rooting for the Rays. “Show them f**king Yankees how it’s f**king done!”
Katherine and I laughed and laughed and laughed.
