I was terribly disappointed to hear that this summer's Hot Stove, Cool Music concert will not be at Fenway Park. It's been a tradition in our house to attend what used to be called the "Fenway Sessions." Fenway was the key word there. It was all about going to the park on a summer night and seeing some music, regardless of how much we actually cared about the bands. We did it in '05, '06, and '07. This year they got Buddy Guy and George Thorogood to play with the usual suspects--Gammons, probably Theo, probably Kay Hanley and Buffalo Tom--but they've moved the event to some other place. So they've lost me and Kim this summer.

Another thing I thought would be a tradition for us was the Futures at Fenway doubleheader. We went the first year, 2006, but terribly they scheduled 2007's games on a Sox @ Baltimore weekend, which we'd already had tickets to. So now we're back to that being a tradition, as we'll be there this Saturday, to see Lowell and Pawtucket at Fenway. Brian's coming up for it. I think the last time he was at Fenway was when he and I drove up from CT and saw the "Bryce Florie game," on my birthday eight years ago, while he and I were roommates.

I still can't believe that you were at that game.
Yeah, waaaay out in the RF GS, so it's not like we were close to the horrible incident.
