I love my family

We are all so silly sometimes but none so much as my brother in law.... Krazy Kat!

This evening I called to see if he and my sister were watching the All-star game introduction of the Hall of Fame players and the current player. I wanted my sister to see Yogi Berra, he looked so cute and old and her favorite, Mr. October Reggie Jackson. Then came the silly:

The conversation went something like this
Krazy Kat: responds you know Reggie Jackson is Puerto Rican?
Me: What? No he's not!
K.K Yes he is
ME: No he is not, his name is Reggie Jackson, not Jacksonez (shut it Jack and Jaded, that was off the top of my head)
K.K He is! he was born in PR and he speaks spanish.
Me Born in PR to his Black parents.
K.K: Doesn't matter. Look it up
ME: Ok, I'm going to the Wiki.
K.K Yes look it up.

Well we were both right (more me than him). Reggie Jackson is indeed half Puerto Rican, but he was born in Wyncote, PA. His mother is from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and his father was a player in the Negro League for the Oakland, CA team. The wiki didn't say he spoke Spanish so that is a tie.....I told you I would blog on this and you know how I love to do research.

NY is in All Star madness: The parade was a block away from my job but it was too hectic with all the streets cut off I could only get pics like this:
YEAH to David Wright for pulling it out at the last minute and making the team!

The parade was a block from my momma's job too, she complained during her lunch break. My family is from Aguadilla. But I am just like you with looking stuff up online all the time, I find myself doing it even when it isn't necessary but I "just want to make sure".

@Lena, yeah I just went out took the pictures and went back to the office. I can't stand when all the B&T's come to the city. ANNOY

@dreamy I think the know it all factor is a family trait. I think its stronger in me.

What about A-Rod! LOL. He's the greatest. He loves shoe models and the Material Girl. LOL

Hmmm... You better be glad you are in ATL, no one messes with David Wright! *Waving fist*

I like looking at A-Rod but I knew he was going to make it, David Wright deserved it.

And how bitter are the Yankee fans, booing the Boston red Sox players... SO Bitter in pinstripes.
