When it comes to baseball, I’m a fan of the other New York team, the Mets. Like my oldest brother says, being a fan of the Mets shows character because it is so much easier to be a Yankees fan. But something the Yankees are doing today before their visit with President Obama at the White House, I think, shows their character.
The Yankees will first be taking their World Series trophy to a rehabilitation house for veterans and a veterans hospital. Putting team loyalties aside, it’s always good to hear when those who have more give to those who have less or may need a morale boost. That’s the same for all people. We may not have something comparable to a World Series trophy to bring around to others, but there may be other gifts or things we can do to brighten someone’s day. In this instance, I will have to give a cheer for the Yankees.
