It’s the most wonderful time of the year again! Time to bundle up, head on down to Fenway, buy some tickets and shop for some awesome items! I always look forward to the Christmas at Fenway event, because it officially closes out 2016 and is my official kick-off to start gearing up for 2017. As usual I got there super early, mostly because I wanted to see what was going to be available at the Annual Fenway Yard Sale. The best items usually get picked over pretty quick so I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss out. When i first entered the yard sale, there were tables of Continue reading
This is always my favorite BoSox Club Luncheon of the year. July’s luncheon is at Fenway Park in the State Street Pavilion, and because we’re already at the park, usually a higher profile player attends, and it doesn’t get much more high profile than this month’s guest.

Wow. That is really all I can say about this day, wow. My cousin was finishing up her first season as an EMT for the Red Sox, and as a Fenway employee, she had tickets to the last home game of the season, which included an event afterwards for all the Family/Friends of the Fenway staff. The game itself was pretty emotional as it was teh last home game for Don Orsillo. Enough has been said about his departure, but personally I’m not happy with it. The dynamic between Don and Jerry is what I grew up with as a Sox fan, and while I have nothing against Dave O’Brien, he has some pretty big shoes to fill. As for the game itself, Henry Owens diminated the Orioles giving up only 3 hits in 7 2/3 innings, and Blake Swihart hit a solo HR to lead the Sox to the 2-0 victory. But the real story was after the game ended.
