Ahhh Yankees baseball is
officially back!

 

I want to wish everyone a
very happy opening day! I hope all of your teams win (unless of course you’re
an Orioles fan, in which case… LETS GO YANKEES).

 

Sadly I cannot watch the
game today. The softball team I coach has a double header today and it’s an
away game so I have to be on the bus at 3:00 p.m. sharp! This is going to be
the first opening day game I’ve missed since 1995. I’m totally bummed.

 

My man, Bill is going to be
at the game… which I’m totally jealous of. He’s promised to texted me game updates
during my softball game, but I don’t know if I should look or not. Maybe I
should just wait and watch the game when I get home, but it’s not the same… I’m
not going to be able to resist looking at the texts, but I’ll watch the game
when I get home regardless.

 

*** Text Message Alert: Bill says Camden
is “Yankee Stadium, south.” Apparently the Yankees are going to have plenty of
people cheering them on today!

 

So I decided that I’d put my
2009 predictions down for everyone to see and laugh at.  (*) denotes wild card

Giving up already?

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…

yankee patch.jpgThe 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!

met logo.jpgHmm… 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).
tzun433l.jpg 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?
