New Hampshire in the Morning

For crying out loud. Fenway is 100 years old.
For crying out loud. Fenway is 100 years old.

M – How awesome was the Fenway 100th anniversary pre-game ceremomy Friday the 20th at 2 p.m.? As the “Field of Dreams” music started, the left field foul territory garage door opened. As if he walked out from the Iowa corn field, Jim Rice appeared. Then what happened next surprised the hell out of me. I began tearing up. I missed the memo that a box of tissues was necessary viewing gear for this ceremony. Following Rice, more Sox alums came from his door and the one in centerfield. Dewey. Remy. Oh my God, Bill Buckner appears and walks to first base to thunderous applause. More tears. Terry Francona walking in from center field. Oil Can Boyd. Fisk. Pedro. By now my neck is bathed in salt water. Finally, 94-year old Bobby Doerr and 92-year old Johnny Pesky were wheeled to second base and the full waterworks erupted with sobs. Am I soft or do the Sox have this emotional hold over us? I saw the fun, but I never saw the crying game coming. I won’t be here for the Sox bicentennial celebration in 2112, but warn the great grandkids to keep the Kleenex handy.
