I recently has the displeasure of going to see my Red Sox play the Oakland A’s in Fenway. Now I’ve been a Bosox fan for a looonnnnnggg time so I’ve seen my share of absolutely crap baseball. To be fair, I’ve also seen three championships but man this years team is bad. It’s one thing to simply not have enough talent to compete, it’s another to have plenty of talent to at least be respectable but still suck and suck bad. This year’s team lack any type of focus, understanding and execution of fundamentals (how many outs have we run into on the base paths?!!), and zero heart or toughness. It’s been a complete and total disaster.
Now having said all of that the only thing saving this team right now is they play in the worst division in baseball and there are some rays of hope because of the performance of some of the young players on the team. in addition, I was lucky to actually see them win on the day I made the trek to Boston. Usually, even in their good years, I get to watch them lose. Given that both teams suck, the baseball wasn’t especially compelling but there are always interesting sights and sounds in Fenway and here are a few I thought I would share.
1. Drunk midgets (oh wait, we call them “little people” now). Yes, I saw drunk little people. I think there was some type of group outing and there were about 30 little people there. All very nice and absolutely hilarious because most of them had been doing some heavy drinking. Very interesting to say the least.
2. Banjo playing hipsters. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that hipsters have moved into Boston. This isn’t the Boston I grew up with. Buy banjos? C’mob at least give me some flutes or something.
3. Boxes of Wartrol. Not familiar with Wartrol? Me neither. I was intrigued for some reason and so I did some research and wanted to know does wartrol really work and according to a website called where to buy Wartrol, its a homeopathic solution for warts. My first thought was that’s kinda nasty, but whatever, it looks harmless and maybe if I had warts I would check it out. but I don’t so there you go.
Lets hope the Sox can find a way to get their head out of their ass. Out and if you do have warts check out the link below if you want more information on this stuff I found.
