Sibling Rivalry

This week there is some intense sibling rivalry going on in my house.  The Phillies are up in New York playing the Yankees for a 3 game series, hopefully my sister and I will still be friends when it’s over.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the Phils and will cheer for them any other time when they are not playing the Yankees, but I’m a true Yankee fan at heart.

This was my first Yankees game, my Uncle took me for my birthday when they came to Citizens Bank Park and played the Phillies (Yanks won).  June 2006.

This was my first game at Yankee Stadium on the day I turned 22, July 18, 2007.  They played Toronto and won this night also.

First trip to the new stadium last summer for the Yankees/Phils series, May 2009.  Yup, they won this game too.

This is August 2009 Yankees/White Sox and mine and the bf’s first official date.  They won this one in true Yankee style with a walk-off in extra innings.  Hopefully my good luck streak for the Yankees continues and they’ll come away with another win tomorrow night when I’m at the game!

Alright moving on to fitness and food.  My sis and I went out for a 1 mile warm-up run yesterday when I got home from work.  Sidenote, why does 1 mile sometimes seem harder than 3?  Anyway, 1 mile in 9:07 and then we moved on to Yoga Meltdown.  This was my sisters first experience with it, and I think she liked it as much as I do.  I think the dolphin poses at the end are my favorite.  I really feel it working so many different muscles, core, shoulders, back, arms.  Love!  We both collapsed into sweaty heaps on our yoga mats when it was over.

Dinner was grilled chicken marinated in my fav marinade, and grilled peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, and brown rice.

And if you are keeping count, I finished bottle number two of the marinade.  Time to stock up, haha!  I realized I eat a lot of peppers and zucchini in the summer, good thing they are delicious.

After dinner, my sister and I sat on the couch watching the game, and the Yankees won, wooo!  She was not as excited as I was, naturally.  Well happy Wednesday, this time tomorrow I will be 2.5 hours away from the start of my weekend!

  1. I can’t say anything about this except: “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

  2. I’ve never understood how such split loyalties can grow in the same household. And if your sister had to choose one team, why – WHY?!! – the Phillies? Granted, I’m not a huge baseball fan, and I know the Yankees aren’t entirely lovable, but I just have a problem with Philly. The city and the sports teams. Well, maybe just the sports fans. One of my roommates is a Phillies fan (he’s from Jersey, but Cherry Hill, which is basically Philly). We don’t talk about it.

    • Haha well in her defense she has lived in a Philly suburb for most of her life, and she goes to Villanova which is swarming with Philly fans. I’ll agree with you though we do have some awful fans, some great ones, but yes some awful ones.

  3. I can relate to sibling rivarly…I went to Texas A&M University and my brother went t Univeristy of Texas. They always play one another on Thanksgiving. Ah fun times…the day all about family and my brother and I are yelling and screaming at one another! hehe!

  4. you’re a yankees fan? I’m so sad. sigh.

  5. I’m so happy to see you loving Yoga Meltdown!! I’m totally in love with it!

    I’m not a baseball fan … So I don’t know if being a Yankees fan is good or bad – but I think its cute that you and your sister cheer for different teams.

    • Meh to most people being a Yankees fan is bad, but that’s just because they’re jealous of how good we are 🙂

      • I think it was on Tosh.0 (or the Soup maybe? those dudes totally look alike) that he said something like, “It takes 162 games just to figure out the Yankees paid for the best team!” lolz

  6. I don’t understand how/why people get angry-violent over sports teams and rivalries-glad you and your sister didn’t beat each other up. But I also don’t understand why people have to bash other cities and their sports teams as well. Can’t we all have our favorites and get along?!? 🙂

  7. There’s a little tension now that I’ve moved to Chicago- I’ve become more tolerant of the cubs. My loyalty will always be with the Cards, but the friends and fam back in Mid-Missouri are raising their eyebrows… lol

    And I hate running just one mile. Because it takes me at least that long to find my stride. So that one mile always just sucks.

  8. Haha, love your Yank pride. I don’t really follow baseball, but I do live for my college football team and will beat people for messing with them. I’ve lost many a friend over it.

  9. Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

  10. Even though I’ve only lived her for a year, I get offended when people bash Philly. People are passionate! About their city and about their sports! How can anyone have an issue with a city they have only visited? Once you’ve lived here, then you can pass judgment…just sayin’

  11. Hey thanks for jinxing your team : ) lol enjoy the rest of your weekend!
