Since I moved away from New England, I learned there was a lot to miss. I am not the only person that moved away. Here are some things and places that you will miss if you choose to leave, according to people that have moved.
Is this possibly the greatest job on the planet? The Green Monster Scoreboard Operator. WOW. For sports fans, the Fenway faithful, baseball lovers, history buffs, and all around coolness vibes, it just may be.
in 1973, four men, Norm Payette, Wilbur Wildes, Ge Erskine, and Dave McHugh, walked from South Portland to Fenway Park to raise money for the Jimmy Fund. Now, 48 years later, the children of these men will be replicating that walk to pay homage to their Dads.
We had a bunch of concert announcements this week in New England. You remember concerts...when we all get together and go crazy with our favorite musicians? Making incredible memories with friends and sometimes, complete strangers! Rescheduled shows and some new shows have been announced at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, The Bank of NH Pavilion in Gilford, Rock Row in Westbrook, and Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor. And today the Boston Red Sox announces their Summer Concert Series. All of these Fenway dates are make-up dates from 2020. I hope you held on to your tickets! All the shows are tentative based on how the pandemic goes. But the fact that we may actually see LIVE MUSIC this summer warms my heart.
Well, it looks like there IS some activity at historic Fenway Park. The Dropkick Murphys are getting ready to do a live show on Friday, May 29th at 6 pm. This is gonna be fun. It's a full-on electric set from DKM. And special guest Bruce Springsteen will be joining the Murphys for a few songs. They say that Bruce will not be in Fenway and will be doing his part remotely but, c'mon don't you think the Boss would look great signing his part from on top of the Green Monster?
