Re: Greater Fenway Park
I have a cousin who lives in Boston. Last season before the baseball season got started she called me and said she got 4 tickets to Fenway and asked if I would want to go. I took her up on that and went to the game. It was on the last week of the season and we were as far away in deep CF as you could get. She got the tickets on the very first day they went on sale. Its just so hard to get tickets in Boston and if you do you pay and arm and a leg.
The Red Sox aren't a product of ESPN. They are a product of a large city with one of the top two greatest ball parks. They are a product of the people hating the yankees and also a product of building a very likeable team. Their first championship team they all shaved their heads, took a shot of jack before each game, and called themselves a bunch of idiots. In all reality they are a very easy team to root for.
I wish Bob Cast would take a look at the way the Red Sox are built and they way they play the game and mimick them. They are able to spend a lot of cash on players but they have one of the best farm systems in the game and are very good at developing players.
