  • My Weekend in Boston

    I have posted a story about a weekend trip I took to Boston to see Fenway Park and to watch the Red Sox play the Orioles, at the following site which is identical in format to Baseball Fever:

    Weekend in Boston Part 1 Time to Go Shopping. Both of our sons were born when we were living in Acton, Massachusetts. They entered this world at the Ralph Waldo Emerson Hospital in neighboring Concord, in 1973 and ‘74, just a few blocks from Walden Pond and Henry David Thoreau’s little house next to the pond. But we left Acton and moved to the Washington, DC area in 1975, so they have no memories whatsoever of Massachusetts. I’ve been a Boston Red Sox fan since about 1949, as I grew

    Most of the people who have read it seemed to enjoy it, and they're not even baseball fans. So I hope some of you will take a peek. It’s pretty long, because it includes some sightseeing sidetrips around the Boston area, but it’s in parts so you don’t have to try to read it all at one time.

    Extremely well written, and, as you said, very long.

    I have many, many memories of Boston, now being here, in Arizona for 19 years. I am 69 in 2 weeks.

    I always tell people who have never been there, that if they ever get a chance, please DO visit Boston and the surrounding area.

    Some of the greatest historical locations in the country, great restaurants, great educational institutions, and, of course, Fenway Park.

    I did a lot of writing in the past, being the editor of a suburban, weekly sports tabloid.

    Some day I will post some of my great experiences at Fenway Park, including all four games of the 1967 World Series. I was fortunate to attend all four of them.

    And, living in the Boston area for most of my life, I have been very fortunate to say that in my lifetime, as far as sports goes, that I was able to attend World Series games, NFL playoff games, NBA playoff games and Stanley Cup, NHL games.

    As far as I am concerned, there is no city in the country that comes close to Boston, and I rate Boston Sports Fans (New England) as some of the best, and most knowledgeable in the world. And, of course, the most rabid, and most loyal.
    Patriot fans, check out the newest, and best, Patriot Fan Forum on the net. Lots of good stuff.

      Thanks, NEM, for your kind comments. I'll look forward to your recollections of the '67 World Series, and any other topics you will be generous enough to post.
