The game went off with only a 30-minute rain delay. This was a miracle, as we thought no way is this game going to happen as we drove down to Boston through torrential downpours. The Red Sox lost, which sucks, but it was a great pitchers' duel - scoreless until the 7th inning. It was great to be in the crowd. Cheering and screaming with 37,000+ other people is much more effective than me by myself in the living room. Here are some pictures:

This is someone who is waay too excited to be at Fenway.
When we got there, the tarp was on the field. This picture shows how close our seats were. We were in the 8th row up, right behind home plate. Sweet.
