Citgo Sign Turned Back On During Red Sox-Blue Jays Game

An iconic landmark for both Fenway Park and the City of Boston, the Citgo Sign underwent a huge transformation this summer. Over the past two months while the sign was dark, electricians replaced more than 218,000 LED lights with more energy-efficient ones (Source: AP). The 3,600-foot, 45-year-old sign was relighted during the seventh inning stretch […]

The Couch Potato Report: Halfway to St. Patty’s Day Edition

Ladies and gentlemen, the final official weekend of summer is upon us. Fall is already in the air, and so is football… and it is a truly glorious thing. Beyond it being the final weekend of summer, Friday also marks an unofficial holiday… “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day!” You wouldn’t guess it from my very […]

Football (aka Soccer) Returns to Fenway

Something was definitely amiss at Fenway Park Wednesday night. Sure, the fans were all there (over 32,000). The architecture was the same as it always was: the Green Monster looming over left field, the Budweiser sign illuminating right, Fisk and Pesky marking the corners. The songs were the same too: “Dirty Water,” “Shipping Up to […]

Red Sox 2010 Second Half Preview

With the 2010 Midsummer Classic in the books, after Joe Girardi screwed the American League out of homefield advantage in the World Series, it’s time to look ahead. The unofficial second half of the season will get underway for your Boston Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park, with the opener of a four-game series […]

Sox Drop Independence Day Game To Lowly O’s

Fans of fireworks on the Fourth of July were dissapointed this holiday. At Fenway Park at least. The Boston Red Sox managed only three hits on Independence Day this year, as they were shut down by Brian Matusz and the most-awful Baltimore Orioles 6-1 in Boston on Sunday in the oppressive afternoon heat. The Red Sox […]

Ortiz, Red Sox Cap Off Impressive Month With Victory Over Royals

The Boston Red Sox finished off their month of May in suitable fashion. On New Hampshire Day at Fenway Park, the Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-1 to salvage a split of the series heading into tomorrow’s day off. After a much-needed sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Sox came into this […]

Pink Hats: Fenway Park’s Immigrants

Pink hats are the illegal immigrants of Fenway Park, and some Sox fans are starting to act like Arizona law enforcement officers. It’s easy to see why longtime fans resent the newcomers to Kenmore Square. Bleacher seats are hard to come by these days, and if anyone deserves them it’s the tried-and-true fan, whose blue […]

Frozen Fenway, BU-BC and a Much Needed Party

It takes a lot to impress me. Very rarely do I walk out of a movie, a concert, a social gathering or sporting event shaking my head in pleasurable disbelief. Not to say I don’t enjoy any of these things, because I often do. It’s just I don’t get blown away very often. I’m much […]

My Boston Sports Wish List for the Next Decade

There is never anything wrong with looking back. But after a while, you just get tired of it. Over the last few weeks, we have all been inundated with year-end and decade-end reviews, “Best of” lists, and whatever else writers and newscasters like to throw at you to fill time in December. It’s all well […]

Winter Classic Destined To Be a Classic

Fenway Park was on the edge of its collective seat for the third annual Winter Classic. It was a close, tough match, but the Boston Bruins somehow clawed out a 2-1 victory at the end. The 1st period was nothing special, really. Some back and forth action, with a nice looking save or two on each […]

Red Sox Lose ALDS, is it Fenway’s Fault?

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is blaming the Sox being on the wrong end of an ALDS sweep on the Fenway Park infield, calling it the worst in the game. Stop it. You might as well say the umpires were on the Angels’ payroll. Not a bad idea, actually. The fact of the matter […]

Fenway to Stay Frozen for College Hockey

Fenway Park is set to have a very busy and very chilly off-season. The MLB’s oldest active stadium will play host not only to the NHL’s Winter Classic between the Boston Bruins and Philladelphia Flyers on New Year’s Day, but also to a college hockey double-header one week later, on January 8. Hockey East officials […]
