For it's root, root root for the home team...


...except when it isn't.

We have a tradition
at the end of summer
as close as we can get to Ben's birthday

of going to the Twins game when the Tigers come to town.

Because, as we all know
(all together now)
Ben LOVES tigers!

So he happily cheers AGAINST the home team.
And lately, that has been the position you want to be in
(if anyone follows the Twins, you know what I'm saying)

EXCEPT

wouldn't you know we would pick the one game 
where the Twins rookies would let you believe
that this is a TRUE rebuilding year!
(I hope so! ahem)

Sorry Ben!
Better luck next year.

On the way home Ben said he really had a good time.
If you know how competitive my boy is,
you know that is a true sign
he really is growing up.
I love being his mom.

He was pretty cool about it when they won last year, too. Great pictures, Tracy!

I so totally love all of Ben's expressions that you captured! Looks like a great evening, despite the home team winning (bah humbug!).
