It’s that time of year again, time to get together with family, eat, and be thankful for what we have. For those of you who live anywhere but Florida, the leaves are changing, and the weather is getting colder. Down here in Florida, although various cold fronts come through, it’s nothing spectacular. I have a lot to be thankful for, and I hope that you guys do too.
I am thankful for my family, they’re always there for me, and are supportive of my blog, which I just told them about. Plus, my dad’s side of the family is the reason why I’m a Red Sox fan, it’s a tradition, and that’s important. If it wasn’t for my dad, I wouldn’t even be a baseball fan. The greatest gift he will ever give me, is the gift of loving baseball.
I am thankful for my friends, even though some of them don’t understand my love for the Red Sox, and make fun of me for blogging. They’re always there for me though, and the ones that do support my blog, like Christina, it really means a lot to me.
I am thankful for baseball. It brings people together in a way that nothing else can. The way people are, the way relationships that we have, would be totally different in some cases if baseball didn’t exist. You never know what’s going to happen, it changes every night. You could love someone because of baseball, or you could hate someone because of baseball, but at the end of the day, we’re all baseball fans.
I am thankful for the Boston Red Sox. The emotions that I feel when I walk into Fenway Park, which is only about once a year, are indescribable. I would never be able to thank them enough for all that they do for me. There’s so much history to the team, painful history admittedly. And just watching every game, every night, is just the best thing in the world for me. I can forget about everything else that has ever happened, and only think about the game. I live with them, and I die with them, and I always will.
I am thankful for the people that read my blog. Words can’t describe how much it means to me that people are reading and sending me positive feedback on my blog. I’m so surprised that I’m the featured blog of the week, I never expected that when I came onto this site. This site is awesome, it doesn’t matter who you are, or even who you root for, we can all put our differences behind us (and by differences I mean different loyalties), come together, and just talk about baseball. Thank you guys SO much.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
