A Beautiful Night At Fenway

How often do you get to park for free directly across the street from Fenway? (How's that for gloating?)Well, when your brother in law works for the Sox, you can find out. You can also check out his ring.

Well, the weather couldn't have been better and the seats were cool too, though not the best I've ever had at Fenway. Clement pitched well and Youkillis hit a home run and Tek nearly hit one, bouncing it off the right field wall some rows down from us. Here's the view from our seats:

And can I just say, I love Julian Tavarez and Rudy Seanez? You see when it was 7-1 I'm thinking, "Well, this is cool, but it would have been nice to see Papelbon pitch." Ask and you shall receive. Pap started warming up in the pen, and there was excitement in the air.

Pap came in, the crowd went crazy and he shut things down, though he did give up one hit. (He also scared the garbage out of us when the trainer came out. According to the Red Sox website, he "tweaked his lower back."

After the game saying goodbye to my brother-in-law, I saw him chatting with John Lithgow. Go figure. Great night at the park!
