It’s been a wicked busy weekend for me.
On Saturday afternoon, I took my Dad to a Red Sox game. (The tickets were a Christmas gift to him.)
We sat in the right field roof box & had a fun day – despite the Red Sox losing & David Ortiz getting himself thrown out of the game for arguing with an umpire.
Me & Dad in our seats – with a Boston Marathon runner behind me
Because the game was the day before the Boston Marathon, they had Rick & Dick Hoyt throw out the 1st pitch. They’re heroes of the Boston Marathon & Dick is the grand marshal this year. Another teammate will be pushing his son Rick in his wheelchair for the marathon.
They also honored a wounded warrior team of veterans during the 7th inning that would be running the marathon the next day.
The weather for the game was amazing! I forgot to put on sun block & got a burn on the left side of my face, but it was worth it!
The last time Dad had been to Fenway Park was when I brought him, my Grandpa, and my Uncle in 2005.
