Loving the Irony

We signed Brady up for Little League. We're trying out a new league. We have put him in the Gilbert Little League division - SE Diamondbacks. In this league - the teams are assigned a name from the MLB....like the Diamondbacks, Angels, Indians, etc. This is different from the league he has played in for the last couple years. In the old league, the teams get to pick their names. But - now, the name is chosen for us. This shouldn't be a big deal, right?

Well, we've been waiting for a few weeks to find out what team Brady was placed on, who his coach is, and where/when his practices are located. Last night, we received the email....

Brady has been placed on the Yankees.

The Hottie just about died. Brady was almost in tears. I literally had to talk sense into both of them. You would have thought we were talking about the real Yankees. It was that bad.

I was holding back giggles and chuckles and tons of laughter. Yes, this was very ironic. The biggest, Fever Pitch-style Red Sox fans were now going to be cheering for a Yankee team.

No worries, I promised Brady that he could wear his Red Sox gear to practices and only had to don the Yankees jersey at the game. I also told him that Bryan would get a Yankees shirt to support the team....that didn't go over too well.

Isn't it funny how things work out?? HIL-AR-I-OUS!!!

I am laughing so hard; I can't stand it! That is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. I really feel bad for Brady. I hope this doesn't affect his game.

Seriously - I still laugh thinking about it. Tonight we got an email from the coach and all Bryan could say is...Yankees suck. I told him he needs to keep his mouth quiet!!! Poor Brades :)
