I MAY HAVE BOOBS, but I really do know what I’m talking about.
Wednesday, October 19, 2005
The common perception is that girls do not know anything about baseball. This is the common perception because it is generally true. Sometimes you’ll see a chick with a baseball hat on, but you know it’s really there to cover a bad hair day. Some girls will claim to be Yankee fans, but couldn’t name a single player other than Derek Jeter (because he’s ‘so hot!’ of course). Others will try to play along for their boyfriend’s sake; these are the girls you’ll see at a playoff game playing with their cell phones as their man stampedes three rows of fans to catch a Sheffield foul ball.

This is where I come in. I’m the chick that’s reading Moneyball on the train. I’m the chick skipping class to watch the ALCS. I’m the chick getting in a fight about Ortiz’s defense with two Bosox fans…and winning. I’m the chick who scoffs when I see people wearing Yankees jerseys with the names on the back (that is not authentic!). I’m the chick explaining the balk and the drop-third strike to her nephews.

I’m also the chick who constantly has to convince people that I do know what I’m talking about, despite the fact that I am indeed a female. I can hold my own with the most die-hard fans, and in most cases I probably know more than they. I know about trades, what’s happening down on the farm, managerial strategies, steroid rumors, the value of the lefty specialist, and the downfalls of the designated hitter.

Or course, I’m still a typical chick in some ways. I tend to get a tad emotionally attached to the players (who care’s if Bernie’s hitting .250? He seems like such a nice guy!), and I always bring my eyeliner to the stadium, in case I need to touch up between innings. But don’t let that fool you. I am the Yankees Chick.

    I commend you on winning your argument with Red Sox fans over Ortiz's defense! I assume your position was that his defense sucks, but lets be honest; only George Bush could lose that argument!

    Keep on spreading the Yankee word out there in sunny CA...

    If you're a true fan and not just out to be 'cool' because you're a girl who loves sports, then why talk about that fact so much and drive home the point? Seems to me that if you're really just a true fan, then you'd just do your thing, not keep talking about yourself and how much you know and try to persuade everyone.
