OPENING DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh boy,this is how we have spent the winter...............

BUT WAIT...........................................

This is what we live for.......we will live through snow,sleet,ice,rain,anything...to get to this day...Now Joey and Tanner and Lorenza and all you other Yankees fans may want to skip this post .........because today is the day we Bostonians live for.,.....OPENING DAY AT HOME AT FENWAY PARK OF THE BOSTON RED SOX!!!!!! This means its spring(even though it is about 35 degrees out WE DON'T CARE!!!!!!!!!!! AND there was a BIG ceremony so that they could receive their championship rings!!!!!!!!
PL2 had to go downtown to get her hair cut today...so she hopped on the train.......

And there was a BUZZ in the air!!!!! This town had COME ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She got very excited( because it was opening day,because she realized she had better be on the train before the hordes of people got on the train to go the game,and also BECAUSE SHE WAS GOING TO GO TO DUNKIN DONUTS!!!!!!!!Forget Starbucks and all that other other fancy stuff,,,she is a Dunkin's girl,and because it is opening day(she is shameless and will use anything for food)......


That is one of the closers for the Red Sox!!!!!! Our boy Pap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The whole town was on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She flew home(and beat the crowds going to the game...) and decided to take us for a walk before the game started,and took us here..........

It was very lovely there but all we wanted to do was this.........

And Pl2 was telling us that the Red Sox were HOME!!! Can you see how excited we are???????

So we flew home and watched it on TV.If you love sports then you would love here because this is the greatest sports city in the world!!!! In the opening ceremony they had a lot of famous Boston sports stars there.......Bobby Orr and Kenny Hodge of the Bruins,Bill Russell,JoJoWhite,KC Jones and Danny Ainge of the Celtics, Teddy Bruschi of the Patriots, AND THROWING OUT THE OPENING PITCH????!!!!!! This will only mean something to real baseball fans....BILL BUCKNER!!!! Of the 86 Red Sox(who let the ball slip between his legs and lost us the championship not that we were holding a grudge) BUT WE WEREN"T!!! Because he got a standing ovation!!!!!!! And then they all got their rings and they flew the championship flag and the Boston Pops were playing on the field. and 4 F-16's flew over the field(and gave PL2 a fright because then they flew right over the house and the whole place shook)..............

And best of all our friend Wally the Green Monster was there!!!(he looks like a GIANT STUFFIE) We love that kid.......so the cob webs are gone,spring is truly here and we are in heaven!!!!!!!!!

PS We met a new kid over at Scruffy,Lacie and BabyStan's.....HIS NAME IS FENWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guess who he roots for??OUR BELOVED RED SOX!!!!!!!!!

Hey, Is that Olmstead Park named after Olmstead, the park dude? You know the guy. He designed Central Park and our mountain park here. I would love to pee in one of his parks. Well, I pee on the mountain all the time, but I mean in one of his big major parks.

Happy Sox Day!


Lenny said...

Go Red Sox! Is Jordan's furniture doing the free furniture promotion again? My mom is drooling looking at the Dunkin's pictures. :) Did you guys get any munchkins to eat?

Your friend, Lenny

Molly the Airedale said...

Dexter said...

Opening day, oh yeah! I LOVE baseball because you can meditate during the game and not miss anything! Momma works at EMC who sponsered the Socks in Japan! Yahoo!

BTW - This party rocks, huh?

Fenway said...

I'm gleeful with happiness for you both.I was following the RSS feed on Ms. Alpha's computer and saw that DiceK lit 'em up. Yayayyayay. Arooooooooo.

And those nice fans finally forgave Bill Buckner. My little heart is so full.

And you Ms. Thing is a Dunkin' Donutty fan, too. My Ms. Thing noticed that it's the biggest franchise in MA. They make howlingly good coffee.

We loved the pics and we can't wait 'till Friday when they get to Boston Cream Pie those losers from NY! Hahahaha. Yippee Yi Yo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You guys are the BEST! Didja tell everyone that you know a famous lil' pup? Maybe I can get us all onto the Green Monster. In fact, my "real" name is Tartan Bay Green Monster...that's the one they'll use at the doggie shows.

Koobuss said...

Great post, guys, even if it was about the (cough, cough, cough), it's so hard for me to say, Red Sox.

There, I got it out. Whew!!

I loved all your photos. Isn't it great to have baseball back! Now, if spring would only come, too!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Go Yankees!

Noah the Airedale said...

Crikey you two are so funny. Is Boston really the biggest sporting city in the whole wide world???? Down here we play cricket, rugby league, AFL, soccer, rugby union and basketball. We're not really into baseball. Do you like cricket?

Glad baseball season is here!!

I love it when the red soxs kick the Yankees butt...you see, I'm a Met's fan...or around here it's call a Met Sox fan.

My dad is teaching me about baseball as we sit and watch the game together, and share the snacks!

Agatha & Archie!
Thank you so much for visiting my page yesterday! That was a pic of my dad2b holding me in my 2007 World Champs tee. My brother and I signed your blog today and happened to see our friends Mary & Panda on your guestbook!!! My mom was so excited! Did you know that my brother and I are on the window of Mary & Panda's store?

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Wow...this post was so Sox red, it was BLAZIN!!!!!

Just becuz the Pirates lost their home opener...again. Though we WERE behind 7-0, came back to tie it, and lost in extra innings. That was the first time an opener here has gone into extra innings in like 40 years. Usually...we just get trounced. Poor Pirates!!!

Wanna talk bout the Pens???!! WOOHOO!!

So glad you two hooked up with Fenway...he's as obsessed as you two are!

Wow..if we were named after our stadiums...

Lacie could be Mellon
Babystan could be PNC
and I could be Heinz...


Barkin' at ya...had a fab time with you two at the pawty!!
