One of the most important parts of being a pet owner is teaching your pet the difference between right and wrong. Of course, one of the most important parts of that teaching process is letting your pet know the right sports teams to root for. For example, Eko learned from an early age that the right team to root for in college sports is Notre Dame.
For baseball, I have always been a Yankees fan, but since we lived on the road for most of Eko’s life we weren’t able to catch too many games. With the Yanks (hopefully!) going deep into the post-season, now would be the perfect time to teach Eko to root for the Bronx Bombers. However, I think that after tomorrow I am going to have a tough time convincing Eko that anyone but the Chicago White Sox should be his favorite team. Why? Because tomorrow night Eko and I are going to a White Sox game. Not just any White Sox game – it’s the annual Dog Day game.
Along with a host of other lucky dogs/humans, Eko and I will get to watch a live Major League Baseball game from inside the stadium. It’s going to be an incredible experience and I can’t wait to check it out. I may be a Yanks fan, but tomorrow night Eko and I will definitely be cheering for the Sox. The White Sox…never the Red Sox…ever.
