I guess I have to get used to it since I have quite a few games in the "bleachers" this year - not really bleachers since they have all real seats (cramped) up there (there is "real" bleacher seating up on the high level on the home to first side - very crappy seating). It's a great time, a great view and great fans up in that area. Nothing but Boston accents and fun times.
It was a perfect day, great weather and I honestly had a great view of the game up there. I really enjoyed the day even though Kevin cried a bit over the shut-out, his wife, as always, was a good sport.
I'll be at every home game on the weekends, so many more great pictures to come.
Fenway is looking better than ever since the redesign and getting over to way out there seating, I got a look at the new food concourse, it's great, very family oriented and open. I'll have to take a few pics from there next time. They had two bands playing a few hours before the game inside and out. As usual, Loius Tiant was outside signing autographs, he's such a great guy. An institution on Yawkey Way by now.

Although he cheered his team on from the heart of the Red Sox home seating, no one gave him any grief. Everyone was nice and so was he. I have to say though, that's very different from my encounter with Pirate's fans at Fenway, Pirate's fans are complete assholes and a waste of human life.
