In a baseball state of mind...


I've officially caught baseball fever. Between gearing up for my first fantasy baseball draft of 2010 (tomorrow early afternoon--wish me luck!), spending entirely too much time shrieking/squealing over the pictures Mama Grammarphile sent me from my parents' trip to spring training (Hamels and Utley and Dobbs, oh my!), and counting down to Opening Day, my mind has whipped itself into a baseball-crazed frenzy lately.

One more reason I'm looking forward to Opening Day is that shortly afterward, the Victoria's Secret MLB gear will be able to be purchased online. You may have heard a little bit about this clothing--my take on it is here, although from what I've read on other blogs/websites, I seem to have the opposite viewpoint from everyone else. I actually like the stuff.

That being said, the problem is this: I live in New York. I'm a Phillies and Twins fan. Until after Opening Day, the Phillies and Twins stuff is only being sold in Victoria's Secret stores...in PA and MN, respectively. What's being sold in New York? Mets and Yankees stuff, of course. I don't mind the Yankees (except for whenever they beat my Phillies or Twins), but no matter how cute or sparkly it is, there's no way in hell you'll ever catch me wearing any Mets garb. I'd seriously rather run around naked than wear a Mets shirt. But I digress.

I looked online to see what Victoria's Secret stores they were selling the MLB gear in, hoping that maybe, just maybe, one random NY store would have Phillies stuff in it (hahahaha, wishful thinking!), but sadly, that wasn't the case. While I was there, though, I spotted a fun little misspelling/typo. The Yankees may be the current World Series Champions, but that doesn't mean everyone knows how to spell their name. (For the record, the Phillies and Twins both had their names spelled correctly on that website--yay!)

Ahhh, baseball...once we hit Opening Day, I will be the giddiest, happiest little Grammarphile around...at least until October or so! :)

I love the idea of Vicky's Secret MLB stuff!!!! OMG, I'm so glad you shared this info, I have to get myself to a store and find some Boston stuff! =)

Oh dear. My NYSis would be ~so~ very disappointed in that typo (she's a Yankees fan).

Mama Grammarphile to the rescue! I raided Victoria's Secret for you and picked up a few items that you might enjoy wearing. Can't wait to see you so I can show them to you.

Love you.

@ Bridgete: It's really, REALLY cute. If the Sox stuff is as cute as the Phillies stuff, you will LOVE it!

@ LadyStyx: Well, your NYSis could always become a Phillies fan. No typos there. ;)

@ MarieC: Go Mariners, indeed! On one of my fantasy teams, I have Hernandez and Lee...so I'll be rooting for the Ms all season long (except when they play the Phillies or Twins, of course...hehe)!
