The Yankees have their backs against the wall today and their season hangs in the balance. Will the hard-throwing Jeremy Bonderman make like his teammate, The Gambler, and pitch the game of his life today? Is there any way that Jaret Wright can come through for the Bombers?
Talk about tight spots, dig my situation. I'm in Vermont for Emily's sister's wedding (she was married in Mexico last spring, this is the U.S. celebration). The ceremony isn't until tomorrow but there is a family barbeque today. Guess what time it starts? 5:00, smack dab in the middle of the biggest game of the year for the Yanks.
My first thought when I learned the Saturday schedule was to tape the game and watch it later in the evening. But that's when I thought the Yanks would win on Friday. Even if I prevent the other Yankee fans from watching it on the TV here, they've got cell phones, and scores will be floating around the party for sure. What to do? How to be a dutiful fiancee and make small talk when I'm sure to be distracted? Can you feel my pain?
I'll just have to find a way to suck it up, just like the Yanks. I know I'll be able to do it and I know they will too.
