The new year has come and gone and my first bit of temptation to break one of my new year’s resolutions manifested itself today. If you forgot my New Year’s resolutions, you can refresh your memory here.
No, I didn’t crack an A-Rod/Madonna joke, I went to the Yankees’ team website and saw this…
The one New Year resolution that I was actually serious about (or thought that I could stick with) was to “stand strong and not buy every single novelty first season patch, coin, dirt, etc.”
Now, I’m not a shoppaholic, although, I do enjoy a good shopping spree on the Don Edy Hardy website every once in a while… But, seriously, I’ve got to have this patch. Maybe I’ll buy a framed picture of the old stadium and the new one with the patch in the frame? OOO or maybe it will have the last season patch and the inaugural season patch too!!! For starters, maybe a tee shirt?
I’ve got to do something to control these urges, but every time I go to Yankees.com I’ll be face-to-face with my temptation. Help me out here guys! Should I just give in? At least it’s a cool looking logo. I feel sorry for Mets fanatics… they have to sport this thing for a year!
Hmm… I wonder how much dirt from the new stadium will cost? Maybe I can go on a tour of the new stadium and just scoop some up off the warning track like I did at the old one. While I’m at it, I’ll get me some grass too. I’ll have to bring a small pair of scissors with me to cut the grass… I don’t want to uproot any of the sod. Just kidding… I’m not going to do this, so please don’t arrest me if stealing dirt is a crime (I assume it is since they sale it).
On a different note (well sort of), the local radio station I listen to (107.9 WLKN) had their mid-day show on with Candy and Potter (a hilarious married couple). Candy and Potter brought up this story about a woman who went to rehab because she was addicted to Pop, Soda, Coke (what ever you like to call it). Then they had people call in and say what they need to go to rehab for. Well, I had to call in and share my Yankees addiction with the Charlotte Metro area. I usually don’t call in to stations, but it was just so true that I just had to.
Final Whisper: What are you all addicted to? Is it Yankees baseball like me?
Baseball Nerdish as Always,
Ok, it’s the off-season and it’s rather quite. So, I’ll be watching the Carolina Panthers take on the New York Giants tomorrow. Usually, I’d go with the Giants, but I’ve got to have a little hometown spirit right? I’m not a big football person, although I like to watch it (if that makes any sense at all). Plus, I need the Panthers to win so I can win my fantasy football game this week (yea, I missed the draft).
The radio station I listen to here in Charlotte (WLNK 107.9) put together this very amusing rally music video for the Panthers and I thought I’d share it…
Final Whisper: Go Panthers!
