The following pictures are from June 20! Dodgers vs Red Sox game at Fenway Park. It was the Sunday Night game....

We left Cambridge and got on the T-line (subway version) As I mentioned before, you will a lot of Red Sox advertisements around the city. Boston supports the team.

It was raining in Cambridge... but when we arrived in Boston, I didn't expect to see this when we got off the T-line

I wanted to cry. It was raining so hard that I didn't think there was going to be a game. We hid under a roof. The rain stopped about 40 minutes later... Thank God!

We started to walk towards Fenway Park... Like Friday, we got there early. We're not the only ones. Fans get there early.

    Fans eating, buying Red Sox merchandise, just having a good time. It's great getting there early. It's like a pre-game party.

    About to enter Fenway Park...

    All seats were wet. But this nice usher was cleaning and drying your seats.

    The lucky seat. This is where Ted Willam's longest Home Run landed. The seat in the right field bleachers is painted red to mark the spot where the longest measurable home run ever hit inside Fenway Park landed. Ted Williams hit the home run on June 9, 1946 off Fred Hutchinson of the Detroit Tigers. The blast was measured at 502 feet. Legend says that the ball crashed through the straw hat of the man sitting in the seat — Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21.

    Roberto, the Sandinista caption made me belly laugh! Vicente, however, might not be as amused...just don't go to the shooting range with him.
