Opening Day Notes
Just a few notes from today’s opening day ceremonies at Fenway (and a quesiton).
I got quite a laugh out of the 2007 banner that covered the Green Monster flying all around when they first dropped it. It was like 2004 didn’t want to be forgotten.
I loved that the Sox had Johnny Pesky hoist the flag. It sure seems like he gets a lot of respect around the clubhouse and it really showed today.
Bill Buckner came out to throw the first pitch to a HUGE ovation at Fenway. I guess the wound is finally healed. Bill looked rather emotional himself.
It was announced that Neil Diamond will play Fenway on August 23rd. So, here is the question part. Usually the Fenway concerts happen during the All Star Break (right?), this is during the season. Do the folks over at Fenway have another concert to announce (Bon Jovi was supposed to be this year’s show) or is the Neil Diamond show going to be the only show at Fenway this summer (this would break my streak of Fenway shows, since I saw Dave and The Police and have zero interest in Diamond).
