Though the AL East division was all wrapped up before Saturday night’s Red Sox game (#161 on the season), home-field advantage was still up for grabs. With the Sox win that night, we now are guaranteed home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and end up tied with the Cleveland Indians for the best record in baseball. Months ago when the Sox had a double digit lead over the Yankees, no one expected my tickets to the second to last game of the season to mean anything but that just goes to show that baseball has a very long season.
I took some pictures at the game of our dynamite seats, and they came out surprisingly well for a 2 mega-pixel camera (though it desperately needs a flash and motion stability). The funniest comment of the night came when I asked a young Red Sox fan to take a few pictures of our group with my iPhone.
What the hell, is this thing from the future
Guess not everyone has been lambasted with commercials and blog posts about the iPhone! Anyway here are some pics from the game.
What a great view, eh?
Real close to right field.
Those are some sacred numbers…makes sense that this section is the rowdiest part of Fenway Park.
We all still had fun…who won again?

Is Boston going to have a trifecta??? Celtics are for real, The Pats look amazing and finally the Red Sox won the series. I found mlb odds http://www.wagerweb.com/sports-betting/sporting-events-news.html
that not only have lines on a boston championship trifecta, but also look and see the odds on Sox repeat! Cool. Go Boston!
It’s looking more and more like it every day Richard! Here’s hoping this great streak of Boston sports keeps up (though the Celtics stumbled tonight against the Bobcats…).
