Meet Brittany Hutchinson. She's a college student from Boca Raton. She loves the Rays.
Anyway, when she told her boyfriend that she'd be trekking across the state to see the Rays play the Phillies in Game 2, he gave her an ultimatum: Him or Evan Longoria & Co.
"I said I was going to the game," Brittany said. "He said it was the straw that broke the camel's back."
Admittedly, it took me awhile to comprehend that Brittany's ex-boyfriend wasn't mad at her because she wasn't taking him to the game and, rather, he was mad at her for going at all.
But then she cleared it all up with one simple revelation — "He's British," she said. "He doesn't get it."
"Well, there you go," I said, needing no further explanation.
