Another Season At Fenway

Last night was the first Red Sox game we had tickets to this season. Standing room only, which sounds kind of lame until you realize that the standing room seats have pretty decent views (when some idiot isn't standing at the top of the aisle in front of you anyway). It was a bit cold though. The t-shirt, shirt, sweater, and jacket I was wearing were apparently not quite enough. Next time maybe something with a hood...

As for the game itself, we got shut out by Hernandez. Heck, it was almost a no hitter until J.D. Drew managed to get a single off of him in the 8th. I guess Joanna's technique of incessantly talking about the fact that a no-hitter was going on did work in the end. Dice-K managed to give up 3 runs, but as Rob said, if he pitches like that in every single game this year he'll win more than he loses and nobody would think of complaining. If you're going to complain about anything from last night it's gotta be about the fact that the offense couldn't get their shit together. Doesn't matter how well a pitcher does if his team doesn't score any damn runs.

I must admit though, it was pretty crazy watching Dice-K's first outing at Fenway. The stands were practically white from all the flashes during his first pitch, and I'm still trying to figure out how the guy dressed in a sumo outfit managed to avoid frostbite. The fact that one of the vendors outside the park is now advertising Sausages, Pizza and Sushi will take some getting used to though.

Next tickets are for Friday night versus the Angels. Hopefully it'll manage not to rain. Heck, hopefully it'll manage not to snow...
