I had the privilege of sitting in my beloved Fenway Park with my friend Cynthia Keliher to witness the first visit to Fenway by the San Francisco Giants and the man with the largest head on the planet, Barry Bonds. True to form, the Fenway faithful welcomed Mr. Bonds with their legendary hospitality. At the very least, nothing was thrown other than several chants of "STEROIDS...." There were several "Bonds*" asterisk posters in the house.
It was a perfect night for baseball - I had a great meal with good friends before the game, all in all it was a lovely evening.
Here are some snaps and thoughts.
The two jokers on the left sat in front of me - so you know they were eight feet tall with heads 2 feet across. All right - they weren't that tall, but darn close. The nice young man on the right was polite and engaging - I hope he learns to whistle through his fingers soon!
We brand 'em young in boston.
