Phils fan, Mets fan put aside differences to get married, change bases

Maybe love is indeed the strongest word.

USMC Cpl. Kathryn Mannion from Coatesville, Pa., is an avid Phillies fan. Sgt. Daniel Campbell is from the Bronx, and roots hard for the Mets. And, wait -- they're married?

The couple just returned from their second tour in Afghanistan and were on hand at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday to perform a base change. Mannion swapped out first base while Campbell switched out third. The two admit that when they first met in 2008, they teased each other about their respective teams.

What would the Philly Phanatic say -- if he could talk?
