"If one of our sons became a player in the MLB and was on the Yankees right now, what team would you root for?"
It was a no brainer for me, I would keep my loyalty for my team, the Red Sox, but hope for my son to go 4-4 each game. She then threw me another doozy:
"If one of our sons was drafted by the Colts or Steelers (my two least favorite NFL teams) in MSG would you wear a Colts hat to celebrate on ESPN?"
This one was much harder for me. On one hand what is the harm in just putting on the team hat during this great moment? On the other hand the Colts and Steelers are pure forms of evil to me. But in the end I said I could wear the hat during the draft, but would never wear one during an actual game.
Now it was my turn:
"If one of our sons was given a full ride to play for Notre Dame would you cheer for the Irish?"
I believe the look I got was enough of an answer...neither of our sons would ever set foot in South Bend, unless they were on the visiting team.
What say you?
