Teaching My Son The Proper Order of Baseball

A conversation wherein a certain 6-year-old proves his parentage...




"Those, those are the New York Yankees, and they're the bad guys."

"They're the bad guys? The New York Yankees? That's a funny name."

"Yes. No matter who they are playing, today it's the Chicago White Sox, we're against the Yankees. They're the bad guys."

"Who are we for? Who are the good guys?"

"The Red Sox, but they aren't playing today."

"Do you know what team I like?"

"What?"

"I like Star Wars."

We have similar conversations, but substitute "Utes" for "New York Yankees."

I've always maintained Star Wars is the best team. Very versatile too. Baseball? Star Wars. Duck Hunting? Star Wars. Mom of the Year? Star Wars. Competitive Eating? You guessed it.

I'm glad to see he's being taught proper baseball.

Yesterday he says to me, "I've seen a lot of Star Wars. I've seen the first one and the second one and... Have you seen any Star Wars?"

"I've seen the original ones, four through six."

"What do you mean?"

"Well, they made those ones, four through six in the eighties. They made the first three when I was in high school, I haven't seen those ones."

"That must have been before they were Star Wars."

Yes yes good girl. That needs to be taught very very young.

Every blog post reaffirms my belief that we are kindred spirits! Go Red Sox, or anyone who is playing the Yankees!

Is Captain Picard on Team Star Wars? How about the gang from Firefly? If so, then I'm a fan, too.
