Fenway Park Update

Fenway Park
Just checking in...

I'll post pictures and videos when I arrive back in Los Angeles. For today, it's a day off. I'm not going to the game. We are going to explore the city. We'll be there tomorrow for the ESPN/Night game.

Last night was amazing. I've dreamed of visiting this ballpark since I was a little kid but never thought I would watch the Dodgers play here. But thanks to interleague play, we get that opportunity.

The atmosphere around the ballpark is great. The fans arrive very early. You see a lot of bars and restaurants around Fenway Park. There's a lot to do there.

Manny Ramirez was the talk of the town. I didn't really care about that. There was mixed reaction from his first at-bat. You can tell many Sox fans have hard time saying something bad about him. They have this love/hate relationship. Other fans will just tell you "Manny can go to hell"

I was interested in checking out Fenway Park. I was impressed. This old park looks amazing. No wonder they say "Most beloved ballpark" I will post pictures in a couple of days. 

E-mails... I'm not being a jerk, I will respond. Please give me some time. We've been walking and running for the last six days. I think we only sleep about five hours. We need to take advantage of this trip. It's not like when I'm back in L.A. where I'm in the computer all day and I can respond faster :)

Follow me on Twitter for updates. Go here. Since I won't be on a computer, it's easier for me to tell you what's going on. With replies, it's a bit harder for me. I'm sorry for not re-tweeting your messages. Please don't think I'm ignoring you. I will respond soon! I promise. Thanks.

Hi Roberto, I'm on the dodger tour package and Steve Lyons told us to wear blue Mannywood shirts to the game tomorrow and espn is going to put our section on tv. We're in right field section 2 box 88. Come and join us there.

I think Clemens was sitting in the Green Monster section for Game 1. Did you see him? That would be a pretty cool experience.

@ Steve - I will be in section 36 tomorrow. I'll try to stop over there.

@ KempKershaw - I wasn't sitting in the Green Monster. Everyone thinks I was because of the Twitter picture. But no! lol I'll explain when I get back home how we got there.

Don't even think of replying to emails and such while you are there! As an LA transplant from Boston, I say: enjoy the history, the atmosphere, the lobster at Legal Seafood, and counting the times you hear the word "wicked" used in a sentence. Bostonians are a fun bunch and Loooove their beer. Lol

@ Kroxx - Funny :) This is a great city. I'm having a blast.

Im super happy by the turn out of Dodger fans that have come for the series. A lot of friendly banter between fans at the games. Beautiful weather as well. W's would be great, but what can you do?

Roberto Baly said...

@ Brandon - Same here. Dodger fans came out strong! :)
