Melrose huh? I'm in Saugus!
Actually, I'm quite lucky. Last year I got to Fenway over 20 times. The only problem being, probably half those times I was alone because I could only buy single tickets.
Tis year I'm cutting that by half (as of right now anyway).
Finally got to Yankee Stadium last year and was slightly disappointed...I expected it to be larger than life, I guess. I'd like to go back - I didn't really get the whole experience as we got there late.
I love Fenway. And I can't wait until the bandwagon fans fall off so we can get the real fans back into the park.
