Game day

Go Yankees!!

(I'm indifferent to sports and really don't feel like getting into my distaste for them all together, but I love telling people from home I am a fan. Don't mess with a southerner and their sports much less admit you root for a northerners team. And seeing as how I see sports as a tragedy, I like to have a little fun with it)

Anywoo, I hate game days because my train is packed more than usual filled with blue and grey Yankees jerseys. Which is a plus being packed in a subway filled with testosterone has its advantages if I do say so myself. So I will brave the packed subway car if I get a date out of it. (Which has yet to happen, much to my dismay but its only the beginning of the season ;) I had lots of eye candy on the commute home, even if I was sandwiched in there.

And I HATE hate hate with a passion seeing this sign. I don't think the A-train has worked on the weekend once I moved up here. The shuttle freaks me out because they look like regular MTA buses and I'm always afraid I'm going to get lost in The Bronx. Now that's a scary thought!

Well, here is one guy who has never understood the appeal of sports at all.

I've always thought it had something to do with my lack of coordination as a child.

People shout themselves hoarse, spend money to sit on bleachers in the rain and then riot in the streets because a bunch of guys ran around on a field kicking or throwing a child's toy around for a prescribed amount of time and somebody won and somebody else lost?

Uhhh...getting stuck on a crowded train on game day in ATLANTA is so NOT full of yummy eye candy. It's scary and smelly and I'm a little afeared for my life (or my wallet) at times.

And yet, I still wore my Colts jersey to the Falcons game. bwa..ha..ha...

I'm not scared of The Bronx, per se. I go there all the time to go to Target, but its kind of like any borough, I would be freaked out to be lost in Queens or Brooklyn as well. But there is a big rivalry between The Bronx and Brooklyn here, and I prefer Brooklyn (even though I hated ever minute of living there for 4 months).

And I LOVE wear the opposing teams colors on purpose! I tried it once and it didnt go over well with my LSU lunatic friends.

I really want to go to Yankee Stadium, though, and I would even wear a Yankees shirt- but I'm holding out for it to be a date, so I need to find him before the season is over.
