Take Me Out To The Ball Game

The last time my Kansas City Royals played baseball in October (and won the World Series), I was this size.

Me, circa 1985 

While I'll always be a Royals fan, it's been fun the past few years to cheer on the Texas Rangers as they play in their second back-to-back World Series. 

My husband and I have been fortunate to go to most of the games during the postseason. Clearly, we don't fool anyone in our faux Rangers gear so I spent last Saturday afternoon on a quest to find a Nelson Cruz jersey. I've never been a jersey wearer, but for some reason (maybe it was the grand slam walk off I witnessed), I really want to represent #17. Apparently, so does everyone else in Dallas. They were sold out everywhere. Boomstick, baby!

Sans jersey and too stubborn for a regular Rangers shirt, my most recent spirit gear consisted of these bracelets and bangles my sweet friend Molly gave me for my birthday. 

I'm still on the lookout for a Cruz jersey (or t-shirt), so if you spot one, let me know. Go Rangers!

I hope you find your jersey - your wrist looks great, in the meantime :)
