~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's baseball season, and I've noticed that many teams are wearing shades of
beautiful blue.

We used to live in South Florida, where the Marlins play. My husband still roots for them. Look at the gorgeous teal blue in their logo.


Now we live in the Tampa area. Sometimes, it's hard for Johnny to get the Marlins on TV, and he settles for watching the Rays. Here is the logo for the Tampa Bay Rays. It contains two delightful shades of blue.



Are there any shades of beautiful blue in your team's uniforms or logos?


Happy Blue Monday!

Natasha said...

Hi Sally. I am not too familiar with baseball but Stacey's husband used to play and LOVES it and my hubby has been watching a bit of it on cable lately so I am getting to learn a bit more about it.

Thanks so much for having us again this week. Happy Blue Monday!

Best wishes,
Natasha (& Stacey and Holly).

♥ Kathy said...

How fun :) My mom was a tour guide at the Astrodome when I was little so the Astros were the only baseball team I ever watched play. They always lost lol Happy Blue Monday Sally!

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally. I miss you so much, and think of you every day.

I am a Yankees fan, but they have blue, too.

Jeanne said...

Hello dear Sally, My husband rooted for the Marlins too. Both of us were transported to Florida when we were 9 years old and grew up in Miami. We didn't meet until we were in our 20's. He moved in 1946 and we moved in 1948. We lived 5 miles apart but he attended a different HS. I'm from MI and he is from OH. Our fathers had warmer weather in their dreams.

The Gators are college teams but blue and orange is their colors. You know we have a family of Gators.

Thank you for your email keeping me updated on how you are feeling. Feeling better is wonderful to hear.

Today is a beautiful day in the mountains. Enjoy your day in your beautiful new home.

Love, Jeanne

Debbie said...

Good morning Sally!~ Nice blue baseball logos....not really into baseball myself so I do not have a favorite team:) Happy Blue Monday!

The Tablescaper said...

I'm not a big baseball fan, but both the Mets and Yankees sport the blue!

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

Hello Sally,

I don't think we have major baseball teams here. People seem to prefer basketball more. But it is played in some schools.

This made me remember of a movie "A League of their own". :-)

Happy Blue Monday!

Mizpah,
Li

Becky K. said...

I am not a big baseball fan...but I did feature that teal blue in today's post.

Have a great Monday, Sally.

You are in my thoughts....hoping you are ok. So few posts of late.

Sally, The team logos are pretty. Love that teal color. We have a farm team for the Chicago Cubs in our city, and guess who the new manager is: Ryne Sandberg! We're excited! Thanks for sponsoring this meme; it's fun.

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Smiling One. Too bad I know nuttin' about no ball games! :) I did see a professional game in Houston last summer but I couldn't even tell you now who was playing, but the hot dogs were good! :)
I'll be in the Blue with you today.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Jamie said...

Can't say I'm a real fan of either team, but I do like the blue :)
I have some blue from "home" this week :)

Hi, Sally girl...I am so glad you are feeling better.
I'm like Shelia, I don't know squat about ball games...I always just eat everything they sale and think I had a great time.

Mama Ko said...

Good luck on your baseball team Ms. Sally

Baba said...

Good morning Sally, I love your blues today... especially the blues on the Rays logo...I am sharing my thrift store finds... Baba

Ann said...

Love your shades of blue. I think thats a pretty common color among baseball teams. We have a semi-pro team I love to go to here. Maybe our Royals will climb up the ladder this year. Hope so. Happy Blue Monday.

jlshall said...

I'm not really a baseball enthusiast, but I hope both your teams do well this year. Love that fish on the Marlins logo, and the teal color, too!

Sailing Simply said...

Were all black and garnet here in Gamecock country. But your post did remind me of one my favorite restaurants here in town, The Blue Marlin. YUM!

The Happy Homemaker said...

Oh, Sally...I'd be a bad wife if I didn't throw my husband's beloved Tarheels into the mix!Gotta love that Carolina blue:) Go 'Heels!!!

Heidi said...

Your team logos are fun, and love the blue. But the only team colors we're fond of around here are black and orange - Go Giants!! (Oh, and "panda" black and white - for Pablo Sandoval). But I do love blue and white at home!!
Thanks for hosting this fun meme.Have a great week.

Beansieleigh said...

Hi Sally! Well, I have two favorite teams. My grandfather taught me to love the Boston Redsocks, so I've been routing for them ever since.. No blue there, though!.. My other favorite team is from my own home state, of course.. New York Yankees! Now THERE'S some blue for ya! But could I have possibly picked two bigger RIVALS than these?!!! It's not easy when they're playing each other!... Happy Blue Monday! ~tina

Marice said...

those are nice looking logos :) thanks for the visit Sally! oh ant btw, the baby that was welcomed to Christian is my friends' baby :)

Denise Marie said...

We've been a Marlin but not a Ray in little league. lol

Teresa C said...

Ooops! I missed Blue Monday again, but I did post. I have to get my act together earlier in the day!

I'm a Red Sox fan. I love their grey uniforms with the navy numbers and their hats are navy. I think they have blue pre-season uniforms as well. There is always some blue in there.

Eden said...

Hi, Sally!

Those are beautiful logos. Happy Blue Monday

April said...

Well, living in the Atlanta area, I have to admit that it's Braves all the way for me! At least they have blue as their colors, too! :)
