As I was pulling on an orange and blue shirt this weekend, I thought, “This is what love looks like”. Because all Hokie fans know that you do not willingly wear blue and orange (something about our in rival’s colors for those non-Hokies out there). But for better or worse, my husband is a Mets baseball fan. And their colors just so happen to be…orange and blue. So I am now the owner of an orange t-shirt with a very large, very blue Mets symbol on the front.
So I walked out to the living room and made sure that Scott understood the magnitude of what was happening. I actually said, “This is what love looks like.” To which he replied, “Hmm. It’s very bright,” and continued watching TV.
Sigh. My sacrifice and love were not fully appreciated. Luckily, I was able to drown my sorrows in a hot dog and French fries and other fine ballpark foods.
The new CitiField – Shea Stadium no more.
It’s actually not so bad being a Mets fan (or married to one) these days. They are holding their own in their conference and actually threw their first no-hitter last Friday. Of course, we went to the game on Saturday and missed history being made.
I can’t complain though. It was a beautiful day, the Mets won and Scott had a chance to catch up with an old coworker and friend. We love that people like to visit New York!
All in all, it was a pretty nice little Saturday. I’d definitely go again.
But my Mets shirt might mysteriously be in the wash.
