The 2009 World Series Will Break Up My Wedding

phillies-yankees copyAs you all know by now, the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies will battle it out for the 2009 World Series title this week. If you are a reader of this site, you probably know that I am a HUGE Yankees fan. What you may not know, is that my fiancé, a native of a southeastern Pennsylvania suburb is a Phillies fan. We should be in for quite the interesting week.

I worry how this series will affect our relationship. Up until this point, we always rooted for each other’s teams. We shared a love for baseball and a hatred for the Mets. I’d take her to Yankee Stadium and she would buy a shirt of whichever Yankee she thought was the hottest at the time. She’d take me to Citizens Bank Park and I’d purchase a Phillies cap and cheer on Chase Utley.

But that all changes from here on out. My Phillies hat will be burned in effigy. I hope Citizens Bank goes bankrupt and Chase Utley breaks an ankle.



There is a good chance I will be moving back in with my parents this week. I just don’t think I can watch the games with her. I need to be among allies. I want to cheer and scream among friends if the Yankees win. I want to throw a tantrum like a 12-year old if they lose (although I doubt they will lose- The Yankees will smack around Joe Blanton, 90 year-old Pedro Martinez and the crappy 2009 version of Cole Hamels). I don’t think I can have her around this week if she’s not for the Yankees.

If the Yankees lose and she is celebrating in my home, I might lose it. I might pack her bags and buy her a one-way ticket back to Philly so she can hang out with the other degenerate Phillies fans.

If the Yankees win, she might be kick me out of the house because I undoubtedly will trash-talk her until she smacks me across the face.

Both the teams have a great core of players and should be good for a long time. Who knows? Maybe this will be the first of several World Series matchups. What if this rivalry escalates to Yankees/ Red Sox or Phillies/ Mets status? Could we still coexist? I don’t know.

Whatever happens, our relationship is on thin ice right now.
