Opening Day at Fenway

April 8, 2008 at 4:59 pm 2 comments

Spring is officially upon us. The defending world champion Boston Red Sox inaugurate the home portion of their 2008 regular season with a 2:05 p.m. game against the Detroit Tigers.

What’s new about this team and this game? After 86 seasons without a ring, the Red Sox have won two World Series titles in the past four years. And after a century of pretentiousness about our national pastime being worthy of a World Series, baseball bloviators finally have a point: The Sox visited three countries — Japan, the US, and Canada — during their 19-day season-opening road/plane trip.

What’s stayed the same? Fan perspective. The same folks who grouse about the Sox entering Fenway Park with a last-place record in the American League (3-4 after a sweep by the Toronto Blue Jays) don’t seem to realize that things could be worse. Boston’s opponent, the Detroit Tigers, is 0-6 to start the season.

Go Sox!

    I’m not grousing. Good teams will win and bad teams will lose. The Sox are a GOOD team. Check out my blog too: http://npbmlb.wordpress.com

    I have to say, I’m all about the San Diego Padres, and Pittsburgh Pirates.

    I love watching the Sox play and truly despise the Yankees. The only thing I am surprised about is the Detriot Tigers slow start. I love me some Jim Leyland, and think he is an amazing coach. But other than that non sense. Good Article! and Go Bucs!
