The backstory: We are baseball fans of the old-fashioned sort, with complicated loyalties that can sometimes make things tricky. We dislike the Cubs, because they are the traditional rivals of the St. Louis Cardinals, for whom our devotion is most reserved. We dislike the Dodgers for a host of very good reasons that boil down to the fact that I am a born and bred northern California girl. The other night the Dodgers were playing the Cubs. I texted JT for guidance.
Me: Cubs v. Dodgers. Who do I cheer for?
JT: The umpires.
Me: Well said, son.
