2 weeks ago, I was sitting on the couch watching TV and then I get a text from my BFF, Melissa. She said "Your boyfriend is a Cardinal." HOLY COW. I don't think I've ever jumped so high off the couch. I ran dowstairs out of breath. Jeff thought something was wrong. I screamed at the top of my lungs "LANCE BERKMAN IS A CARDINAL AHHHHHHHHHH!"
For those know know me, I have a deep love of Lance Berkman. Please don't ask how I came to love him so much, but I do. It all started when he played for the Houston Astros and for some reason Jeff kept calling him Fat Elvis. I thought it was funny/cute. Then every time we would go to Cards games and the All-Star Ballots would come around, I'd always pick Lance, even though Albert is in the same spot. Jeff didn't like that.
The best was last year when Jeff's brother invited us to sit in the Green Seats when they were playing the Astros. We got to sit on the visitor side, so I was able to get some lovely shots of my Lance.
Strike Out - it's okay, you're a Cardinal now!!
What hurt me the most was when he was traded to the yucky NY Yankees. I thought we were over, done kaput. No way in Gods Green Earth would I support Lance in Pinstripes. Luckily, that was VERY short lived and now he will be spending 1 year with me. Jeff is okay with this. He knows my love. He feels the same about Jennifer Garner - but she doesn't work in St. Louis. Muahaha!
So, as we approach March just so you know I'll be watching an awful lot of baseball and probably not blogging as much - so if you want to go to a game, let me know.
Let's go Cards!
Me & Jeff at the Green Seats -
I was wearing my Don't Fear the 'Stache T-shirt - LOVE!
