It Just Doesn't Matter - 8/28/14

It Just Doesn't Matter

The Yankees are playing the Detroit Tigers again and boy did I get some responses after my blog post last night "Who wore it better me or Kate Upton". They were all pretty positive so thank you. But Yankees haters and Kate Upton fans all around don't like me right now for what I wrote. Ask me if I care - and I'll ask you a question right back... When was the last time you took a stand for something you believed in? I do it on a daily basis. 

For years I've worked in a male dominated business, played sports my whole life, and some of my best friends are guys so I'm use to being bold, opinionated and have a very strong personality. I'm a tough girl and when I feel passionate about something I speak my mind. Don't get me wrong, I also have a soft side. I'm the most down to earth person you will ever meet and I always give my heart and soul to good causes. I offer help whenever I can, but when you mess with my sports teams, look out! I will never back down from a fight or a challenge. It must run in my family - I helped my brother beat cancer twice so defending the Yankees hat is a cake walk for me. 

We live in a world today where loyalty is gone. Morals are at an all time low. The entire planet seems to be in dismay or crisis. That's why I take my sports so serious. Not only did I grow up playing sports and watching them on TV or if I was lucky enough to go watch a game in person and cheer my team on, it brought me the greatest joy. To this day I find sports to be my relief. Sports take us to that happy place. They lets us escape for a few hours and just enjoy the moment. Whether it's baseball, hockey, football or basketball, or any sport we love and any team we obsess over, it's sometimes just what the doctor ordered. It's an outlet that we all need to make us forget all of our troubles and just enjoy life for the day....unless of course your team loses, then that's when a good beer after the game comes in! 

Let's face it, times are tough these days and we could all use a little escape. So to all my personal haters and to all the Yankees haters out there reading this blog, can you please just see my side of it and let me take a stand for something I love?  If it was your team you'd give me a high five. The Yankees are my favorite team and if someone who is in the spotlight turns their back on them, you're just setting yourself up for disaster - yes I'm talking to you again Kate... I just have to speak my mind because I'm all about respect. This is a team that has given me so much joy over the years the least I could do is defend them. It's time we all stood up for something we love and believe in. I challenge you all to give it a try. It's a great feeling.

And now, back to the game! The Yanks have had it rough for a while but all of a sudden they're turning things around. This could get interesting. The Yankees hat is alive and well! Let's Go Yankees!!! 

My quote for the day is a little different. I'm including a link that I think you will enjoy. I'm still smiling:

This quote comes from Bill Murray in the movie Meatballs... "It Just Doesn't Matter" ... "It Just Doesn't Matter"... "It Just doesn't matter" ... "It Just Doesn't Matter"

  1. I follow you as always, Lisa. Yankee fans always take a beating from other teams' fans, and sometimes quite justified. They can be obnoxious, two-faced, and fair-weathered. Especially in the past 2 decades. But it's the fans like you that deserve the utmost respect, and it's fans like you that make me proud to be a Yankee fan. I follow you proudly.
