Walking Contradiction

I have to admit I'm kind of a walking contradiction. My guy friends, who are just as baseball obsessed as me, shake their heads in confusion when I admit my love and obsession with Keeping Up with the Kardashians. My girlfriends who I laugh, squeal, and cry through chick-flicks with don't understand my ability to sit through 3 hours worth of baseball and anguish over base-running errors. I don't blame them. I flip between E! and ESPN all the time. I need that perfect balance of drama on the field and on the television screen.

This was perfectly illustrated when I was watching 'At Home with Jason Heyward' during the Braves rain delay. I perked up when they introduced the segment, turned up the volume, and got a little giddy while listening to Hayward's childhood and rise through the minor leagues. I event got goosebumps when the replayed JHay's HR in his FIRST at bat as a major leaguer against Carlos Zambrano. Then a few minutes I switch over to Keeping Up with the Kardashians to see Kim's proposal and same thing! Giddy and anxiously waiting to see how Kris would propose. (By the way, I'm totally a fan of Kris Humphries. Who, I might add, is a million times better than Kris Jenner. The woman is crazy and definitely the most immature of all the Kardashians and that includes Kendall and Kylie.)

So, I confess. I'm guilty. I'm a walking contradiction. I'm just as comfortable in a tshirt and baseball hat watching a game as I am all dolled up with the girls squealing over a chick-flick.


  1. Oh there are SOO many of my girlfriends who don't understand why I love baseball so much! They all go "I can't wait for Football season" but I think they just want to sit around and drink lol. I can't say I'm a fan of the Kardashians, but I am totally like you where I will be all into a baseball game and then go home and gush over the Bachelor or something like that :) Your blog is sooo great, I can't follow on this computer for some reason but I will as soon as I get home!!

  2. I am the exact same way, except with football. Keeping up with the Kardashians is my guilty pleasure!
