Video: Our Red Sox Adventure
We had a huge amount of fun at the Red Sox game last night. Oh- it was a Braves game too. But the Red Sox won- bottom line. I felt a little bad for the Braves - since this was the seventh game in a row that they have lost. But I didn't feel TOO bad. Speaking of too bad- we didn't get on TV...but you will see our signs - and us...at the game...in this lovely video clip.
We were amazed at the amount of Red Sox fans there. The guy in front of us said, " This is Fenway South!" Of course, it helped that we were sitting with some St. A's alumni...but there were many more Sox fans that weren't from my alma mater. It was a great feeling to see all the Red Sox hats, shirts, signs, etc. I imagine that it must be kind of like when travelers overseas meet fellow Americans. Ah, a common bond.
Would you believe we met Ty Law's, Brett Favre's and Jerome Bettis' mothers!!? On our way to a baseball game! And what's more: they are all the same woman! Watch and see...and be swept away by the delusions of grandeur. There was so much more to be seen (she talked literally NON STOP from the Marta station to Turner Field and Brad taped the entire thing) but the kind editor is sparing you. Unbelieeeevable.
On a side note, I had no idea that the Red Sox used to be called the Dirt Dogs- a nickname?- but such is the (wicked) awesome scope of Nate's Amazing Knowledge of Trivia.
