-- "Dirty Water" - Dropkick Murphys
Finally made my way to Fenway to watch the Red Sox play. They're not having the best season...so I had no real expectations other than a night out at Fenway!
The first few innings were a bit sleepy. Buchholz was pitching well, but mainly balls and strikes and not too many exciting plays.
Then, in the 6th, Baltimore scored... and then the Sox woke up and their bats came alive! Mookie singled a run in, Pedroia drove in 2 more runs, and then Big Papi came up to bat. A 428 foot home run right into the bleachers scoring t more runs and the stadium was suddenly alive!
The Sox held on (they're known to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory) and in the top of the 9th Koji came in and 1-2-3 the game was over!
When the Sox win - "Dirty Water" is the anthem played - the entire stadium cheering and singing "Well, I love that dirty water....Boston you're my home" - best way to end a game at Fenway: a Sox win and some Dropkick Murphys.
The season may be less than ideal for the Sox, but let's face it...you have to love the Red Sox!
