|Connelly’s Top Ten: USA Women, Red Sox Bore Astros into Submission||Preparing for Another Year of Rebuilding for the Celtics||Red Sox Bullpen Sleeper: Matt Barnes||The Case For Trading Clay Buchholz|
I am a girl. I love sports. I don’t see why these two things cannot go hand in hand. My mom, aunt, and sister are all huge sports fans. I grew up watching the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics. When the Sports of Boston guys decided to add a female voice to this blog, I jumped at the chance.
I find it necessary to explain the term “pink hat” for anyone who doesn’t understand the title of this column. According to KC, a “pink hat” is a girl who is not a sports fan that moves here for college and buys a pink hat because it is cute. I own pink hats, jerseys, and accessories, but I don’t fit this definition. The way I see it is, if I can mix my favorite color and my favorite sports teams, why wouldn’t I?
I will mostly only talk about baseball and football, because these are the only sports I watch consistently. I watch basketball occasionally, but I don’t even think I could name the Celtics starting lineup. The only thing I know about the Celts is that I hate Paul Pierce and I always have. I go to UMass hockey games so I can chant obscenities and taunt the goalie, but I have no idea what’s going on. As much as I hate to admit it, I cannot remember the last time I watched a Bruins game. I also just drafted my very first fantasy baseball team! I have no idea what I am doing, but I will post more about my trials, tribulations, frustrations, and utter confusion later.
