Weekend with Pop: Day 2

The big event on Day two's agenda was the going to Fenway to see the Sox play the Pirates. I was so excited for the game, and I wasn't disappointed in the least! Thank God the tickets I scored were legit (I had a few minor doubts... ok, I was really super skeptical which I will continue to blame on Mr. V who denies any part in that). Not only were the tickets legit, but the seats were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Dad, being a native of Massachusettes, grew up being a Red Sox fan. Since he hadn't been to a game in 6 or 7 years, the tickets made the perfect Father's Day present!

Here are some pictures of the day:

"All Praise Kevin Millar!" shouted the kids sitting next to us

Ashbloem and Ann of Superette fame joined my family for the big game. Ash was a little worse for wear due to the previous nights activities, but she rallied around the third inning or so. Ann was as fun and gregarious as ever.

I love that they still change the stats by hand

All in all it was an awesome day. The Sox beat the Pirates 8-0. Woo-hoo! Dad said it was the best Father's Day he ever had. I couldn't agree more!

I was amazing that you saw the game through the view finder of your camera. Bet it was just like watching it on TV.
