There are only two things this pair loves more than baseball: each other, and exploding on Twitter.

Carol and Warren Reckemeyer have been married for 63 years. But they both share a love even older than the one they have for each other – baseball. Carol has been a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan since they were the New York Giants, going back to when she was a little girl in the 30s. Warren, who is 92, has always rooted for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Despite their different team affiliations, the Reckemeyers have never let baseball come between them. In fact, it's a big part of their relationship, and they still go to games together regularly. And when the Giants play the Cards, they make it work. "We make a truce," Carol says.

The photo above, which has gone viral on Twitter in the last few days, was taken at a Cardinals-Giants game in St. Louis on Monday night. As you can see, the Reckemeyers wore these adorable jerseys that, when they walk together, spell out "together since 1952." Even though the jerseys are coordinated, Carol and Warren wouldn't give up their individual team colors – some things are sacred.
