Our friend, Brooks, was able to get fantastic seats for us - standing room on the GREEN MONSTER! Travis and I have sat all over the park, but the Green Monster was the one place we never thought we'd be able to sit. It was such a fun place to watch the game...and what a game it was!
We got there a little early so we could secure a spot at the 'bar'. Standing room 'seats' are on the top row of the monster and have a bar ledge for you to lean and eat on. With Travis' back acting the way it is right now, this was actually better - he would have been miserable in those tiny wooden chairs.

Then the game started!
If you've ever been to a game at Fenway, you know everyone looks forward to the 8th inning, when it's time to sing "Sweet Caroline". This time, they announced they had a surprise for everyone. Major League Baseball teams across the country had showed their support for Boston this week by adding some of our iconic songs to their games (like the "Cheers" Theme and "Sweet Caroline"). When Neil Diamond (who wrote "Sweet Caroline") heard this...and that the suspect was captured Friday night...he hopped on a plane to come sing "Sweet Caroline" AT the game! So cool!!
It was a fantastic day and just what we needed to start getting over the last week.
