A note on civility toward a young, misguided Yankees fan

The Yankee Rebellion

Just a note to everyone planning to be at tonight’s Round Rock Express game: My oldest son will be in attendance and wearing his New York Yankees hat. His love of the Yankees is just a misguided youthful rebellion. I’m sure some day he’ll get over it.

Now, being Texas, I’m going to ask everyone to refrain from the things you would normally do to someone wearing a Yankees hat.

That means:
NO VULGER TAUNTING.
(“The Yankees suck” is mild enough and true, therefore acceptable.)

NO STICKING A SHIV IN HIS RIBS
(This isn’t prison.)

NO SPITTING ON HIM.
(Looking at his hat and derisively spitting on the ground is fine.)

NO PHYSICAL VIOLENCE OF ANY KIND.
(I understand the urge, but resist it.)

One day we’ll cure him of his Yankee obsession. Until then, thank you for your tolerance.
