Watching the Sox

To thank me for doing a great job on a gruelling project at work, I was offered tickets to see the Red Sox play at Fenway.  I don’t normally watch sports but hey, game on!  We live so close I should watch at least one game.  The game was played back on September 23.

I took my mother-in-law Joan, because she’s a fan-in-the-literal-fanatic-sense of the Sox.  It was also a way to thank her for all the times she’s helped us out.  She thought it was a hoot.

I had an ‘oh-thats-so-quaint’ moment when I realized that the score board along the back of the field is updated by hand.  There’s a jumbotron too, but in between innings some dude goes out and hangs little panels on the scoreboard to provide scores for other games being played nationally.  The current score is updated by hand, too, but they stay inside to do that.

The Sox lost, in the end, but Joan and I had a great time!  I’m planning to take the girls next year for an afternoon game.
