I first went to the USA (Live in UK) in 2015, and decided to go watch a baseball game. I went to Yankee Stadium, and fell in love with a new sport! I've kept an eye on the Baseball scores for the last 3 years since - checking the Yankees score has been the first thing I've done each morning during the season for the last three years. This year, in June, the Yankees and the Red Sox are coming to play 2 games in London, and I'm really excited to be going to both games!
I know that many people dislike the Yankees, for the same reasons that many in the UK dislike Manchester United, or Chelsea Football Clubs - they're successful and therefore people often choose to support them because it's nice to support a winning team. People change allegiances to the next winning team, and that annoys a sport's genuine fans, so often the most successful teams are the most disliked by fans of other teams (As well as the obvious jealousy thing). So when I speak to americans about baseball and mention being a Yankees fan, I sometimes feel like I get judged as a "Glory-follower". But the reality is that the Yankees are the first team I ever went to watch, and I've checked on their results and supported them every game ever since.
I don't really have much of a point here. I'm just really looking forward to taking my dad to London to watch the baseball.
I like that we're all unique, and part of what makes us all different is that we're interested in different things. So I'm wondering, do you like sports? Which sports are your favourite, and what is it about them that makes you love them?
I didn't know baseball was that popular over there. I thought the thing there was cricket or whatever you call it. Do you all have a baseball league too?
