A few weeks ago, I had the chance to actually go to two Red Sox games in one week! One was our Red Sox night for work which I went to with Darth Coco for her birthday. I'll post more about that night later, but for now I'm going to focus on the second game we went to. The evening started off well, we had dinner at the Boston Beer Works (very good, btw) though there was a very long line.
We were very fortunate in the game we went to because we were able to see Jim Rice's number get retired. That was pretty cool.
I just love close seats! It allows me to play paparazzi so easily...
And I HAD to have a piece of fried dough.... I got a Fenway frank (or 3) when I went to the game against the Orioles, so I decided fried things were appropriate for this evening.
Let's just say that the night got a little tense... The Sox were ahead and then the A's slowly started catching up... GGRRRR!!! It's like we were just waving at them as they rounded the bases. So very frustrating after an early lead. Below is a little example of the tension getting the best of people.
So, after a long (long, long, long, long, long, long game) the Sox lost in the 11th at around 11:30pm. /cry Oh well, you can't win them all... it was a very good night despite the loss. We kind of ran the gambit of the emotional spectrum during the game: elation, anxiety, sadness and hope. Another added bonus was that we both had Charlie cards, which make it much faster to get on the T. Thank you so much Mr. Charlie Card, you saved our lives... or at least let us get a few more minutes of sleep.
