I was able to watch the opening celebration on my iPad. I can't tell you how much I love going up to Fenway and watching games there. My best friend is a huge Red Sox fan and we usually go every summer up and catch a few games over a weekend. Its one of my most cherish things to do, we have had this tradition for almost 10 years now.
I had a great time at Fenway last year and I like the place very much. It's probably got 40 or 50 more years left to it. It's like the anti-Wrigley.

But what the hell was that "Who is Karim Garcia?" all about? Don't tell me Pedro still has a grudge from the 2003 ALCS...

Edit:

...and Philip Humber just pitched a perfect game for the Whitesox.

^ Yeah, a perfect game from someone I've never heard of

Good for him. It's still a pretty rare thing, even though it's happened a few times recently.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

15-9. Ho...lee...SHIT. What an upset that was. The Redsox blow a 9-0 lead...Bobby V gets booed louder than any player probably ever has been...if he still has a job come next month I will be surprised.

In fact I don't ever recall seeing a team's fans boo THEIR OWN MANAGER ever before. Certainly not like this. As much of a Yankee fan as I am, even I felt bad for Bobby.

I didn't. Bobby V is an asshole all around. I couldn't believe what he said about Youkilis and I'm sure this is just the start of "Bobbyisms" should he stick around.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I have been to Fenway a few times and love it but I have been to other parks and am envious of their parking lots

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ I have the opposite attitude. I like parks that let you take mass transit to get to them. Having to rent a car is no damn fun.

Neither is $40 parking or waiting two hours to get out of a parking lot full of drunks.

I'm all for mass transit as well. The line down the street from me stops right in front of the stadium.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

When I lived in Great Neck, I could hop onto the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and be to Shea/Citi-field in eight stops, about 15 minutes. Now that I'm further out on the island, driving is easier but yeah I hate having to deal with the rush out of the ball park. If I have a choice, I'll take mass transit.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to find two ballparks to visit (Camden Yards and Citizens Bank Park) where I could book hotels right next door.

I am particularly grateful that I never had to deal with Phillies fans on the subway after a game at CBP. It was hard enough dealing with them at the game itself.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I can't wait until my boys are old enough to do a tour of baseball parks. My older son Ian who is three, likes to sit with me and watch baseball on my iPad. Figured would start out with an East Coast trip first, Fenway, Yankee Stadium, Citi-Field, Citizens Bank Park, Camden Yards, Nationals Park, Turner Field, Marlins Park and Tropicana Field. Figure it would be a two week road trip, just me and my two boys. Figure I would do it when my older one is seven and younger is five. It would be a mixture of driving and flying.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ That sounds like a lot of fun! Have you considered Sports Travel & Tours? They have a lot of packages to choose from. This July I'm taking one of their trips, to Atlanta/Tampa Bay/Miami.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Did you do one of those tours in the past? I think I remember you posting about it, or maybe someone else on here. At this point I'm still several years away from this happening. While the Tour place sounds intriguing, there something about jumping in a car and heading out for a road trip with your boys that is just to alluring. But considering that I will be almost 50 when this happen, it may not so alluring by then and the Tour maybe the thing.

Right, because I'm sure your Bleacher Creature idols are so courteous towards fans of opposing teams.

They're not too bad unless you're wearing a Red Sox jersey
