Lego rendition of Fenway Park, Boston
Our neighbor had an extra ticket for a game at the Red Sox spring training park in Ft. Myers--the Red Sox played the Detroit Tigers.
Of the 8,000+ people there, I was probably the only one who was not wearing a Boston or a Detroit hat or jersey or tee shirt. I'm not a big time sports fan, which made me kind of an odd ball in my family when I was growing up. I do enjoy watching games live, though.
It's been a long time since I attended a ball game--or sports event of any kind, for that matter. It was a lot of fun. I'd forgotten what a great people-watching opportunity these events can be and how you get caught up in the excitement.
The Red Sox were behind when we left the stadium (it just got way too hot) but that could have changed. I don't know the final score.
