A family story

Disclaimer: This story is for any of my relatives who may be reading this. It's not about grad school.

Last month, Big Sister #1, her family, The Husband and I went to Big Sister #4's house to watch Game 1 of the World Series. During the game, there was some debate about the abbreviations for the team names in Fox's info bar on the top of the screen. Big Sister #1 said, "How come the 'BOS' and 'STL' are both red? Weren't the 'BOS' and 'NYY' different colors during the playoffs?"

Brother-in-law #4 said, "Maybe they change the color of the team who wins, and you're just remembering what you saw on SportsCenter."

I don't know which is funnier, the thought of Big Sister #1 watching SportsCenter, or Brother-in-law #4's assuming that she does.
