I grew up just north of Boston, but my dad though there were too many drugs in the local HS and sent me to East Boston High where I was a Sweat Hog in the Machine Shop, just like Vinny Babarino ;o)
I joined the Navy in 77 and retired in 97. Since my Wife is Japanese we decided to stay in Hawaii and split the difference between Japan and Boston but she gets home a lot more than I do. However, I did get to take my Son-in-law (A Texan who was in the Marines ) and my Grandson (2 years old at the time) to a game in the Fens a couple of years ago. Texas vs Sox series first week of Sept and the Sox won the game we went to on Sat. Unfortunately, they lost the other two and it was the beginnig of the 2011 slide. So yes you can all blame me, it have nothing to do with Chicken and Beer!
I currently work for the Federal Government; double dipping as they say and I love the fact that I can golf year round. My wife likes to golf but not in the sun so we do the Par three at Hickam once a week which is lit and open until 10:00 at night. Plus I usually get a round in at one of the local or military courses during the weekend.
I remember going to a lot of Great concerts in the 70's. Zepplin in the Garden in 73, JGiels Band in the Music Hall and in the Garden. Aerosmith two nights in a row at the Music Hall my buddy worked their and got me in free the second night. I also worked at the Hippodrome on Revere Beach collecting tickets on the Merry-Go-Round from when I was 13 to 16 in the summers and Walked Horses at Suffix Downs in the Fall.
