Opening Day 2014 at Fenway Park in Boston, Ma has come and gone and it was an emotional one to say the least. The marathon bombing victims were a huge part of the opening ceremonies this year by getting to carry out the rings and hand them to the World Champion Boston Red Sox, seriously how special is that? I got the chills watching. Then as they dropped that enormous banner across the Green Monster that read “2013 World Series Champions” I got the chills again and goosebumps too. I mean these guys are my heart and soul all spring and summer long. On a hot summer day I can always count on the Red Sox to help me kick back and relax after work with a beer in hand and watch or listen to the game. But going to Fenway Park and watching a game live is definitely my idea of a good time on a cool summer night. Fenway is my home away from home, it’s my “happy place,” my little slice of heaven on earth. It could be a 90 degree day in the middle of July or a freezing cold rainy night in May and I will be there with a smile on my face (unless we are losing that is) enjoying every minute of the game. I’m so happy that baseball season is back, the Red Sox are like my second family. I have a new car, a new job, the world champs are back, what more could a girl ask for …. oh and I’m going to Aruba in less then a week… LIFE IS GOOD ❤
Obama and the rest of the staff at the White house welcomed the Boston Red Sox a few days ago and as I read about their experience from home I got the chills. These guys continue to amaze me, they are the definition of a class act. I continued on to read about Obama’s speech and how he praised these men for what they do and how they represent the city of Boston with pride and honor I felt goosebumps. These guys held our city down when tragedy hit on Marathon Monday. Then they continued to make us proud by making the playoffs and then going on to win the World Series. They are the heart of our city and I’m so happy that baseball season has begun. Lets go Boys, bring that trophy home again this year!
