SOX WIN!

Game Six!

Games 1&2, 2013 World Series

A little road trip to Fenway with my wife and middle son. Didn't spend the $3-500 needed for a ticket but had a blast hanging out with Red Sox Nation for games 1&2 of the World Series.

Probably only Sox fans will appreciate this post.


Fenway. Part of the tour before game 2.

 Must be in Boston....lobstah!

At the Bleacher Bar, tucked inside the Fens. Nick on the phone working on a ticket.

A legend.


 The red seat designates one of the furthest ball ever hit at Fenway, by the great Ted Williams, the last one to ever hit .400 for the season.


Friends. Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky, Bobby Doerr and Dom DiMaggio. FEAR the BEARD is the theme of this years BoSox....with son Nick.

 The Bleacher Bar can be seen out in the center field wall. It's the left opening.

View from the right field Pesky foul pole.

BoSox relieve pitcher Koji Uehara and his son playing a little ball. Arguably the best closer in baseball this year.

More from the Bleacher Bar. Centerfield in the background.

A great view out to the ballpark from the Bleacher Bar bathroom!

James Taylor, born in Boston, sound checking for his opening of game 2. He also led a choir in America The Beautiful in the 7th inning....he got a bit confused, but that's ok, nobody really cared it seemed.

One more elbow landing....

Decided to try a lower air pressure on my tubless tires due to so many roots on my home trail to smooth them out, a trail I've ridden for 8 years.
Well, I burped it (allowing air to escape between the rim and the bead seal due to a hard hit) on a tight corner when hitting a root.
I ended up crashing and sliding over a large rock in the trail.
3rd time I've done this on this same elbow with the last one happening near Driggs, ID and the first one at Roth Rocks near State College, PA requiring 17 and 30 stitches respectfully.

This time it wasn't near that bad, but still a bit of scrubbing and toothbrush work to try to get it clean.

Jeff, you should have been there!!! (like you were at the first two!)
