First Sox game of 2012!

After we said good-bye to Avi and Noam, mom and I rushed home to relax for a little bit before heading to Fenway Park for my first Red Sox game of the season! They were playing the Indians and anything could have happened considering their record this season...
 We had standing room only tickets, but found some awesome open seats along the third base line. Armed with my zoom lens (seriously need to use it more) I had so much fun taking in the game and taking pictures!
 The line-up was a good one.  A nice mix of old favorites and some of the new guys. Dustin Predroia is still a team favorite, everytime he came up to bat he got a roaring round of applause!
 And of course, Big Papi! He had a really good night as well!
 I love Big Papi's expression in this picture as they scored the first run of the game!
 It isn't a real game until your uniform is dirty!
 There were moments where the pitching and fielding could have been better, and there were a few meetings on the mound, but the Sox played strong and the bullpen backed up the team that night!
 Of course, there were the usual awesome parts of the game: the wave, the whole stadium belting out "Sweet Caroline," getting some super junky ice cream, and an overall perfect night for a ball game.
I was so happy that my first game of the season was a great one and I was so happy to take in the game with mom! It was the icing on a great "graduation" weekend!
