TBB Lingo & Cronies

TBB-short for Traveling Baseball Babes
Papa L- Lisa's dad, bitter Mets fan. Also known as Fred #2.
Papadukes- Serena’s dad, also bitter Mets fan, but has been more devoted to the New York Giants since the last baseball strike. Also known as Fred #1.
The Freds- What we affectionately refer to Papa L and Papadukes as when they're a unit/dynamic duo. For example, during any Fred K's Cancer-related activities or when discussing Fred K's Cancer in general.
Mamadukes-Serena's mom, hard core Yankees fan, but oddly enough, not nearly as angry as we are.
Auntiedukes-sister of Mamadukes. Listens to the Yankees on the radio. Because of the radio, until recently, she had no idea that AJ Burnett was one giant tattoo.
Brother-Serena’s brother. Hockey is life. Remains faithful Islanders fan despite team's performance over the last few seasons.
Sister- Lisa’s sister. Not much of a sports fan.
Erin- Serena's sister from another mother who is a fellow baseball lover (O's fan) and currently lives in Boston. She and Serena met playing softball together for Emerson College and by the end of the 2010 season, she'll have accompanied the TBB on 5 stadium tours!
Matt/The Favorite- Erin's Robin to her Batman (aka: boyfriend) who also accompanies us (and by us, we mean Erin) on our travels. We love him or else we would've dumped him at the Navy Pier a long time ago.
Golden Boy- Any player in any sport who can do no wrong, even when they do screw up. Examples: Derek Jeter, David Wright, Tom Brady, Sydney Crosby.
Tim Lincecum- Starter for San Francisco Giants and honorary Traveling Baseball Babe. This relationship is strictly imaginary. In no way should you think that this man got into an automobile with us. May also be referred to as, "Timmy" or "Tiny Tim Lincecum."
TOWSNBN- David Wright, third baseman for the New York Mets, short for "The One Who Shall Not Be Named." After being rejected by TOWSNBN incessantly, the TBB have chosen to ignore his very existence. Only on the day he decides to change his ways, will the TBB reconsider their position on the subject of TOWSNBN.
Winkie- Our pet kitten that we adopted with our now ex-boyfriend, AJ Burnett.
Lisa's Forbidden Love- Cole Hamels, starting pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. This title is quite simple. Lisa is quite smitten with the look of the boy, but she's a Mets fan. Mets and Phillies cannot be. Just call it your baseball equivalent to Romeo & Juliet.
Lisa's Future Husband- Joey Votto. What can we say? Lisa likes the Italians. It doesn't bother her that he's from Canada because as we've learned recently from Robin Thicke, Canadian men are apparently dirty, dirties. 
The Big Texan- Andy Pettitte. May also be referred to as simply "Big Texan." It's a bit weird that we have to specify this, but based on past experience, we know that if we didn't specify it, we'd get the follow-up, "Wait, who is Big Texan? Is that different from Serena's Big Texan?"
RSR- Random Side Rant
NG- No Good
