So this happened today at Fenway Park. Loved every minute.

These Red Sox are so much fun to watch.

Excellent quote from Jason Gay’s WSJ piece, and oh so true (not that I have any problem with this, just to be clear). And also, this from the comments: “It will be great to have Mr. Valentine in the dugout and out of the announcing booth. Maybe we can concentrate on enjoyment of the game…”
