Root Root Root

My aim yesterday was to celebrate the coming of the major league baseball playoffs (and the Red Sox's win in game one) by taking a video of Kiddo singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

Well, he showed wisdom beyond his years. Usually, when he gets to the line "for it's root, root root for the home team," he'll sing "Red Sox" instead (as has been carefully taught by his Dear Old Dad). I thought that would be cute, and fun to post.

Except yesterday, the Red Sox weren't playing.

But Kiddo knew the Yankees were (we had been watching them during supper). And when he he got to that line in the song, he remembered who they were playing against.

So, for yesterday at least, it was "root, root root for the Indians!"

Because, of course, our two favorite teams are the Red Sox and whoever happens to be playing the Yankees...

Here's the video (other than my having asked him to sing the song, this is completely unrehearsed):

Well, at least your Red Sox didn't play like St. Catharine's Junior Varsity Badminton team tonight.

I can't believe I stayed up until midnight for this. Feel like burning everything red I own...

Don't teach him the NU school song. Not worth anyones time to listen to!
