first time at fenway

Surprise!

At 5:30 yesterday evening, I got a text from Jon. He had been offered a pair of tickets for box seats at the Red Sox game that night. I was sitting at work, getting ready to leave.  I guess we wouldn’t be going home to eat lettuce wraps and watch Restaurant Impossible after all.

The weather wasn’t great, but we still decided to go. The opportunity was too awesome to pass up!  I’ve lived in Boston for a total of 4 years now, and I had still never been to Fenway.  It was embarrassing!  Needless to say, I was pretty excited.

We had a great time!  We enjoyed some ballpark food (hotdogs, pretzels, chowder, etc), we watched the Sox beat the Yankees, and Jon even taught me how to keep score in a baseball scorebook (it’s not easy).

I can’t but always love the Detroit Tigers first.  But if they aren’t playing the Tigers…Go Red Sox!
