Woo-Hoo Opening Day!

Today marks the start of the 2006 baseball season.

Maybe it's because I live a stone's throw from Fenway and when the season start the whole vibe of my neighborhood changes (well, at least parking becomes even more of a nightmare than it usually is)... maybe it's because my brother would yell at me to leave the room if he thought I was jinxing the Orioles when I was a kid... maybe it's because Jason Veritek is just so damn cute... but whatever the reason, I have become a true blue baseball fan. Well, maybe not as much as this guy:

Sitting in fenway park with a beer and good friends and/or family on a sunny afternoon is one of the best places to be. Erin and I will be heading to a game on in a couple of weeks, which will be my first of the season.

There are also tons of photo opportunities when sitting in the stands. Here are some of my favorites from the past few seasons:

I can't believe you said that! You just jinxed the Orioles by bringing up the possibility that they could be jinxed by your youthful proximity!

Sheesh... what a waste of 162 games. It's ok. It's ok... just don't call me when the Mariners are playing.

HAHAHA, thanks Jeffy. Did I mention that the game that E and I are attending will be sox vs. mariners? :)

the mariners!? are your seats behind right field by chance? will you hold up a sign for me? "ichiro, please be my sperm donor?" please, oh please.

Terra said...

Ann-- in fact we are sitting near right field, just under the upper deck. Make the sign and I will hold it up for you! :)
