In response to SFBostonFan's comment:
I posted this separately under "Classy Giants wear Boston Strong patches" and felt it was a good copy & paste here in case someone missed it.
And I will think even more of them if they lose the next 2 games. SF & Boston are very likeable cities & similar in many ways, the bay, great seafood, hills, quaintness etc. & both hate LA Lakers & have the 2 best ballparks, I think, Fenway & AT&T park. I'll be at the day game on Weds with my Boston Strong T-Shirt & "Bee" on my cap rooting for a sweep. My wife will have a SF cap on so we don't get beat up---Ha ! Really little chance of that as some LA fans did last year putting a family man into a coma.
As SF about same distance as Boston-NY, may drive down to a Dodger game too. Go SOX !!!
Nice post. I too was touched by the Giants wearing the Boston Strong patches... and on the fronts of their jersey's, not hidden on the sleeves. Thx SF!! AT&T Park & Camden Yards are the two parks I most would want to visit. New Yankee Stadium with the short RF porch(porch, really? It has a 3ft wall)... NEVER!!
Incorrect, as usual. And guess what? The Fenway RF wall down the line is shorter, and may actually be 3 feet high. Who would have thought?
