PHOTO FRIDAYS: NYY vs. SOX
“You can take the girl out of NY, but you can’t take the NY out of the girl!”
That’s what I say whenever I encounter a Red Sox Fan in Rhode Island. who asks me why I root for the Yankees. They’re often surprised I haven’t changed my allegiance to root for Boston (will never happen) when I moved from Manhattan to New England last year.
This past year, when there were just two fourth classrooms, there was a bit of a rivalry on our hallway when the Yankees got into the play-offs with the Sox. My colleauge is a Red Sox Fan, as were many of the fourth graders. However, there were quite a few Yankees Fans (i.e., who were kids) that banded together with me. Sadly, our team lost (They’ll win again… just look at the stats on this guy’s back!).
I’m hoping for another play-off this year! If that happens, I think I’m blowing this photo up and sharing it with my NYY-Loving Students. It’s a great statistic to share, even if this guy’s shirt is a little cheesy.
