We went to the Red Sox game yesterday. Rats. It was a fantastic outing until the 8th inning. Despite the season ending loss, I did take time too look around and reflect on the wonder that is Fenway Park and Red Sox fans. We were behind a die-hard lady who claimed to have 75 jerseys, 150 t-shirts, 50 pennants, and 10 coats. She also had a huge purse from which she pulled out snack after snack. The icing on the cake was when she pulled out the Red Sox scratch tickets. On numerous occasions she did say she was going to have a heart attack. I think she was only half kidding. I love that kind of passion.
