When you are given the opportunity to go to Red Sox Opening Day when they won the World Series the previous season and therefore will be getting there rings you don't have to think twice.
When you are given the opportunity to go to Red Sox Opening Day with tickets that were purchased at face value you don't have to think twice.
Well my friends I went to Opening Day on Friday at Fenway Park and it.was.awesome! Cold but awesome! If you didn't get to see it let me share with you the heartfelt ceremony that took place before the game.
Then each player came out to get their ring. Dustin Pedroia was first and David Ortiz was last! On the right side of the photo you can see the Boston Pops and the Dropkick Murphys (wearing kilts), both groups performed during the ceremony.
fire in Back Bay were honored. Their families were there and walked across the field to meet the team. It was really sad to see the wife and young children of one of the victims but hopefully that moment brought them some happiness that they will hold onto for years to come.
Jenny Dell. She was sitting right in front of us (when we moved seats) with Middlebrooks' dad. Guys were asking to take photos with her! Ha!
Going to my first ever Red Sox Home Opener was an incredible experience (even if the Red Sox lost). I don't know if I'll ever get the chance again so I tried to enjoy every moment even though I was cold!!
Here's to a GREAT season for the Sox! I'm going to a game again Tuesday night! Woo hoo!!
