Red Red Sox Fan At Fenway
LAist is traveling around the nation seeing how LA compares and contrasts with the US.
Last night we attended a Boston Red Sox game at historic Fenway Park.
The Sox are out of the pennant race, they faced a team in last place, and yet they drew a crowd of 38,000 fans. 32,000 of which had some sort of Sox gear on. They got there on time, they didn't leave early even though the traffic is horrible around the park. They cheered like mad throughout the whole game, and you really got the feeling that the game mattered - even thought technically it didn't.
After the Sox won people spilled out into the local bars, waited in line to get their ID's checked and then celebrated the win that, again, meant nothing.
