No, I don’t want the Cubs’ shirts, despite the fact that Theriot and Hoffpaiur are total BILFs. I’m gonna want the Phillies and Twins gear, which I’m hearing is coming out soonsoonsoon (but not soon enough, dammit!).
I’ve been reading up on the new Victoria’s Secret/MLB clothing, and I swear I’m the only girl I know (with the possible exception of my friend Lisa, and she might only be excited about it when she can find Orioles gear in her local Vicky’s) who’s seriously stoked about this. A lot of people I know or whose blogs I read aren’t down with this clothing, for various reasons–they’re not into the overly girly/sparkly/hearts thing, they’re not sure the clothes will fit them nicely, they’re not sure the clothes appropriately reflect the spirit of baseball, etc. And those are all totally valid reasons to not be down with these clothes.
But for a girl like me? A girl who lives for glitter? Who goes to the ballpark in 5″ red stilettos? A girl who is sick of having to buy youth Medium shirts (not women’s, which are often too big, but YOUTH) so that they are form-fitting and don’t hang off her? A girl who would totally not be embarrassed to wear a shirt that says “love love love Phillies” because, well, she DOES love, love, love her Phillies? For a girl like me, this is gonna freakin’ rock. Finally! GIRLY CLOTHING! Stuff that will make me look cute(r)! Stuff that might actually make my boobs look good instead of flattening them out (yeah, the youth M shirts fit me, but they’re really not built for people with boobs–they’re built for, like, 13-year-old boys).
I’m not gonna be embarrassed to wear this stuff. Sure, some of it has a little bit of an airheady vibe, but you know what? Just as much as I know who’s hot on which teams, I know the stats of the players who matter. I know I’m gonna kick *** and take names in fantasy baseball this year (um, hopefully…hehe!). And I know that whether or not I’m wearing a shirt that says “I only kiss Phillies fans” (a great rule to live by, actually) that admittedly looks slightly airheady, I can talk baseball with the best of ’em. And soon I’m gonna look even cuter while doing so.
In other BILF-related news:
* My parents are in Clearwater right now watching Hamels pitch. Totally jealous? You bet your *** I am!
* Looks like the hottest Texas Rangers need a nurse. Hamilton and Kinsler are injured…poor babies! I’d gladly take care of them…
* My favorite non-Phillies, non-Twins BILF, Cliff Lee, seems to have gotten a little aggressive against the Diamondbacks yesterday. Behave, gorgeous!
