She's fallen in love with the Rays

Tb_celeste Today, It's Your Times  -- the St. Petersburg Times' community journalism site -- published a sweet letter from new Rays fan Celeste Spoon of Brooksville.

Spoon had surgery for a torn Achilles tendon and has been in a cast ever since April. She joined her husband to watch the Rays one night and has been hooked ever since. "That night I fell in love with the Rays, and I want them to know they've made my injury bearable," Spoon wrote.

She later explained to me on the phone that her husband has cancer and the Rays' winning ways "have saved my sanity."

She says she's looking forward to walking again so that she can attend a game.
