Rooting for the Right Team ? 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 parents came from an old New England family. My younger son looked worried. "But we’re still a hundred percent Red Sox, right, Mom?" Link: https://www.rd.com/jokes/sports-jokes/
