A Perfect Day

This past Saturday was the day before 'Opening Day' (and the day before Easter.) That would be Boston Red Sox baseball season Opening Day. So it was the day before it starts to get totally crazy in the Fenway Park area. We, my parents, Steve, Bryant and I thought that it would be the perfect day to head down to Boston for the afternoon.There were a couple of places that we wanted to check out before the season begins. The first would be 'Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill.' It is owned by Jerry Remy, former Red Sox second baseman & now NESN Red Sox game commentator. We got here about 2:30. A perfect time between the lunch & dinner rush.

This was one view from our seats (Fenway Park):

They have awesome food:

...and yummy beer! My Dad, Steve & I had to check out the Remy's Red Ale. Yum!

This was the other view from our seats. The place is huge! Notice they had Nascar on the TV's...awesome!!

When we left Remy's. we walked over to check out the Grand Opening of Supah Fans new store in Kenmore Square. They have the coolest Boston sports t-shirts. You can check them out HERE (If you look closely, there is pic there of me!)

When we walked in, we were greeted by 'Fitzy' (aka Nick Stevens) our favorite New England sports comedian and host of NESN's show Pocket Money. Bryant was so excited to meet him, but was a bit in shock when he actually met him in person.

Here is Fitzy shaking my Dad's hand and my Dad realizing "Hey, your that guy from the TV show!"

Later, Fitzy asked the crowd 'Pocket Money' questions.

I believe this one was a Bruin's question.

There was lots of guessing and someone finally got it right. Who might that be...

My Dad! He won the shirt off Coach Kevin's back (the owner of the store). Here he is posing with Fitzy & Coach Kevin. The black Bruin's shirt is the one that he won.

Through out the whole time we were there Fitzy tried (many times) to have a conversation with Bryant and Bryant was so nervous that he kept hiding behind me. Someone had said that it looked like he was seeing Santa for the first time at the mall. I guess it kinda was. He did finally talk to him a bit and pose for this awesome pic:

It was the perfect day! It was beautiful outside. We had a great lunch. We got some awesome new t-shirts. We got to hang out with Fitzy for a while. And the best part of it all was that we got to spend a nice day together!
