Getting my Joe Mauer fix of the day

OMG. Since we got our DVR, I don't watch commercials anymore, unless it's for a show I watch or it's something really, really, REALLY entertaining, but I was watching the Royal Pains summer finale tonight and I had to stop and rewind during one of the commercial breaks. It's not new - it's been around for awhile - but I just love, love, love this commercial. I'll give you three guesses why, and the first two are wrong. ;)

Confessions of a lazy Yankee fan

The Yankees are playing Boston this week. Yesterday CC Sabathia won his first game against the Red Sox this whole season. New York is showing Fenway, once again, how it's done.

And I'm not watching it.

I've been a terrible baseball fan this year. I've been caught up in other things - work, hobbies, friends, boyfriend - and I've barely watched a game or listened to a game all season. Sometimes I catch an inning or two on the car radio when the boyfriend picks me up when we hang out. And I'm always making fun of him for being a fairweather fan. But he's right when he says I'm a worst Yankee fan than he is. At least this year anyway. Although I did make it to a game at Yankee Stadium a few weeks ago when New York played the Angels. And they even won, so that was fun. But tomorrow September will be here and I don't have a clue who is even in the running for playoff spots. All I know is that New York and Boston are, and the Twins are not.

When I haven't even been following Joe Mauer, you know it's bad.

So this is my apology to major league baseball, and all the Yankee players who don't have a clue who I am and have no idea whether I follow them or not, and I resolve, now that fall is here, to be a much more attentive, active, and engaged fan...of football.
