Opening day

Today is opening day for my team, the New York Yankees. I know what you are all thinking. WHY THE YANKEES?

Growing up on a farm in western Kansas, the only games that my dad could get on the radio were those of the navy pinstripe variety. Ever since then he’s been a die hard fan and brought his three girls up loving them just as much.

My first grade school crush was The Captain, Derek Jeter, who will be embarking on his final season with the team this year. (Tear.) I had his picture plastered all over my locker and even managed to get his autograph at Spring Training one year.

Many kids grow up the same way, liking the team their parents root for, and it is this tradition that I can’t wait to pass on to Evie. Gotta start ’em early!

To-Do lists: I love the feeling of putting a check mark in a box.
