Happy birthday to two friends and potential rivals
As I have written before, I have twin boys. I had hoped to raise two Red Sox fans, but living on the West Coast has conspired against me.
With absolutely no prompting on my part, my boy Matty declared himself a Dodger fan. And I must say looks good in Dodger blue.
My other boy Aidan, the one who made so many correct picks last October, has aligned himself with his grandfather and become a Giants fan. And the Orange and Black look good on him!
I hope this continues... the thought of twin brothers rooting for arch rivals is too delicious to pass up. (Especially as I can watch as an impartial Red Sox fan.)
When I mentioned my boys at the end of Reverse the Curse of the Bambino, they weren't even born.
Today amazingly they are 5 years old. And I have always claimed that you truly start following the ins and outs of a pro team when you reach 7.
We'll see in 2 years if they remain Dodgers and Giants fans.
Happy birthday buddies... your daddy loves you and can't wait to take you to many many ballgames.
