I know, I know...I love football.. It is my all time favorite sport. I mean, come now......No competition

But, you see, I married a baseball fan. Big time. And even though I held these children that we had, I nursed them, kissed their boo-boos, taught them, laugh with them, cried with them. STILL, they are bigger baseball fans then football fans.

I don't know where I went wrong.

So by default, from the simple fact that I live in the house, I too, am a baseball fan.

And all baseball fans know, this is a big month. Not the biggest one, thats next month, but it is like New Years Eve, getting ready for the real thing.

And.... is there any better team then the New York Mets?? Well, yes, but we won't say that in this house. As long as they are doing better then the Yankees(they are) then we are good to go.

And go they do.

Shea Stadium. As you walk down the subway plank, you can feel the electricity in the air. Shea is being torn down. Sad times. The new stadium is right next to it. Across the street is the US Open tennis courts. Way cool.

AAAAHHH, almost there.

And this is a picture of our sons and my nephew. Stephen is my sister's son. He is a functioning austistic young man. Much to Stephen's friends frustration who live in Philly, thanks to his cousins, he, too is a Mets fan.

We have more Met's stuff then is reasonable. Chloe's room is a Mets room. Her walls are the same brown as the baseline. Mets and/or baseball stuff just threw up in there. Posters, stand up guys, baseball curtains, calendars. She has her baseball encyclopidias all lined up. These things are the size of big dictionaries!!

......She has a Mets carpet. Enough said.......

When it was her turn to pick a vacation spot, I *hinted* that Prince Edward Island would be lovely. She loves Ann of Green Gables. PERFECT!! So, after a long consideration, she picked Cooperstown. COOPERSTOWN!!!!!! I almost cried, but John said it was her choice, so off to Coopestown we went for the week. It was......not Prince Edward Island.

PS for all of you non baseball fans, Cooperstown is where the baseball Hall of Fame is. Its a small town in upstate NY.


So, here is hoping the Mets do well this year. Or I will have to once again comfort a whole family, as I had to last year.

And the year before.

And the year before that.

And the one before that.......

And the one before that.......

Lol, you are a patient woman, hehe. I, too, prefer football. I don't think I have ever sat through a whole baseball game! But for your sanity, here's to a good year for the Mets:p

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet words and prayers. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
