Sox vs Yankees
31 August 2011 | Fenway Park, Boston, Ma.
It was no accident that we just happened to be in Boston at the same time the Yankees were in town. Shaybo and I were going to go to Boston a couple of weeks ago. When we checked the Sox schedule and saw that they played the NY Yankees at home at the end of August, we decided to put off our visit, get some tickets and go to see the biggest rivalry in professional sports at what is one of the last remaining iconic baseball stadiums in the country. We arrived early at Fenway by way of the Boston subway system which is known as the "T". Fenway Park is a grand old stadium located in the heart of downtown Boston. During games the streets surrounding it actually become sort of an extension of the stadium, thus turning the whole area into a lively, festive venue. Sox fans and Yankee fans don't pull any punches when it come to their dislike of each other...however the few Yankee fans that were in attendance were treated well by the Sox fans, although they did put up with a lot of ribbing. One thing that never changes from stadium to stadium is that many fans leave during the seventh inning (not me)....and this game was no exception, so as I normally do, we left our seats in the far outfield (pic) and watched the last two innings from field level behind home plate...the Sox won.
