Today is Opening Day at Fenway Park. Sadly, I have never attended an opening day game. It is something I would love to do one day.
Today is a very special opening day. The ring ceremony will take place to honor the 2007 World Championship Red Sox Team. Boy would I love to be at Fenway Park today. Since it is only being broadcast locally, I can't even tape it to watch when I get home from work. Hopefully there will be some good video clips posted on the internet to watch tonight.
So to get you in the baseball mood...
If you haven't seen it yet, check out this very funny one minute video of a play-by-play done by John Mayer during one of the two Red Sox/A's games played in Japan. I have no idea how or why he was was asked to do a play-by-play announcement and why he was even at this game since he obviously knows nothing about baseball.
I am not a huge John Mayer fan, but I would definitely say that he is quite an improvement over Joe Buck as well as a few other irritating announcers at Fox, ESPN, and TBS.
