An American Yankee Girl

It is time for me to advertise my first blog. 

Katherine Anne is a great friend of mine.  She traveled the United States and the world while growing up and sped through my home state of Minnesota from time to time.  We became friends by proxy before Facebook connected us back up, as it does to so many people.

Even though she is a friend, I hate her guts.  She is the epitome of what is wrong with America.  As a die-hard Yankee fan, she brings out the horrid inferiority in me - a die-hard Minnesota Twins fan.  Her lousy team which has included baseball greats like Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth,  Micky Mantle, Roger Clemens, and Carl Pavano (oh wait...he sucked!) has crushed the humble and undeserving Twins in most of the post seasons of the past decade.

Regardless, Katherine Anne loves the Yankees.  Her blog is full of accolades for them.  Currently, she is tracking Derek Jeter's (actually, my favorite baseball player of all time) quest toward 3000 hits.  Her succinct blog entries have captivated my attention and now I am awaiting the historic moment with bated breath.

She is also a seriously proud American.  She loves this country with every bone in her body and then some.  Sure, her taste for Country Music is a bit suspect, but it fits right into her love for John Wayne, cowboys, football, baseball, July 4th celebrations, our military men and women, and everything else that is great about our nation.

In short, Katherine Anne's posts will take a bad day and make you feel good.  Her ear to ear smiles will serve to cause the sun to shine and the rain clouds to be driven away.
