This morning we are heading to Boston for two games at our beloved Fenway Park. We haven't been to Fenway since the summer before we moved to Canada, so this trip is long overdue.
But this isn't just any two games. Tuesday, July 28 is the highly-anticipated "JoS1", the game a group from our Red Sox community (from Allan's Joy of Sox) will attend together, most of us meeting in person for the first time. People are coming in from as far as North Carolina and Virginia - age range from 8 to baby boomers - bringing partners, children or parents, as the case may be. We are very excited!
By luck and coincidence, the Red Sox are retiring former Red Sox slugger Jim Rice's number 14 before the game. It promises to be a great day.
Also on Tuesday, we're taking the tour of Fenway Park, which Allan has done by I have not. On Wednesday Allan and I will do some city exploring around Boston, and see a second game that night. Then we drive back on Thursday.
Please take care of Canada while I'm gone. Don't let any war resisters get deported. CIC friend, rest up, because I'll have a lot to post when I get back.
