(or Lester, for those of you not fluent in Bostonian) the girl behind me screamed that every time he took the mound. there were so many Sox fans at last night's game, it was awesome. The Trop likes to put up "make some noise for your Rays! show these Sox fans this is YOUR house!" on the scoreboard -- but i have to say, felt more like Fenway Park than The Trop. except for the crappy lighting & the lack of bullpen.
let's just say that may be my most well spent $55 ever. turns out i was four rows behind the Sox dugout. surrounded by loud & energetic Sox fans. we had "here we go, Red Sox, here we go!" chants going constantly. and can you top a twelve-inning 12-6 Sox victory?!
it was awesome. right down to the Sox fan blasting "Sweet Caroline" from his car in the parking lot after the game!
tough to give game commentary when you're caught up in live action (nowhere to take notes anyway -- which i usually do) soooo...
how about some photos instead? (click the photo -- it's a link to the album)
|Sox at Rays - July 28, 2007|
oh & i will have all of you know that i fully admit to applauding Lugo when his walk scored the go-ahead run in the twelfth that opened up the landslide of Sox offense -- and again when he came in toward the dugout at the end of the game. appreciation, if not love. but cheer, i did.
