Some days are just meant to be. I dropped by my bank in Roslindale after work and then made a beeline for Fenway for Opening Day. I got there just as Beckett finished the sixth, managed to find a standing room only seat and slipped into the ballpark.
I enjoyed my Guinness and the last three innings of a 5-3 Red Sox win over the Rays. The reaction Papelbon received as he jogged out to close the 9th, Dropkick Murphy’s blaring in the background is one I’ll remember for the rest of my life. Perfect way to close the evening.
