Blood may be thicker than water, but baseball beats them both.

I learned this after explaining to my two boys that they were half-Lithuanian on their father’s side, and half-Yankee, meaning their other set of grandparents came from an old New England family.

My younger son looked worried. "But we’re still a hundred percent Red Sox, right, Mom?"

Dear heart, wish you were here to warm this night
My dear heart, seems like a year since you've been out of my sight
A single room, a table for one
It's a lonesome town all right
But soon I'll kiss you hello at our front door
And, dear heart, I want you to know
I'll leave your arms never more

(a single room, a table for one)
It's a lonesome town all right
But soon I'll kiss you hello at our front door
And, dear heart, I want you to know
I'll leave your arms never more
