Happy Valentine’s Day from HBT

74 Comments

Some people say Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday.  Other people think it’s an important day on which to express one’s love for another. Still others, no matter what they think of the day’s legitimacy, dread it either because they have no love in their life or because they do but they can’t stand the expectations and anxiety Valentine’s Day causes.

I don’t know where I fall on that continuum. It’s been a rather extreme year for me, romantically-speaking.  As a lot of you know, I’m getting divorced and that’s kind of a drag.  But as some of you also know, I’m in a new relationship and that’s pretty exciting.  What I feel about love and the rituals which surround it is very different depending on when, exactly, you ask me.

But I do know this:  if everyone who has a special someone in their life got them this card, the world would be a more romantic place:

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.

Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
