I really would love to see the Green Monster in person one day and watch some totally excellent baseball. Any game at Fenway would be a good game, really.

I'm going to the Red Sox game today!! Day game. Beautiful sunny weather. Im psyched!

And Maelinde, should you ever make it Fenway Park, you can get your very own Green Monster. It is a stuffed toy and comes in different sizes.

The point is experiencing not only the cuisine but the culture in a different country .Getting out, being curious . That's how countries were found after all , it's how we evolve , we explore, we are a curious species thankfully .
I can't afford to travel abroad and Shrek is no longer healthy enough to attempt it. But, I can afford cookbooks (Google helps, too) and ingredients. I travel in my cooking, soaking up culture in the foods cooked and served around the world, I don't have to leave my kitchen.

Enjoy the game. Looks like a great day for baseball.

I'll be watching on TV.

Same here. I did all my traveling when I was young. I worked in the travel industry and lived out of a suitcase for 30+ days at a time. No need to travel, I have cookbooks from around the world. Right now, I'm enjoying trying some African recipes (since I've found a couple of markets that sell the spice blends and ingredients). Other than Africa, cooking lately has taken me to Cuba, Mexico, and Hakka (China).

Plans aren't for a few years yet, so I'll start saving now. I guess the pricey cost is due to the history of the park. I can understand that. I can do without a beer at a game if need be, but nothing beats watching a live game with a beer in one hand and a ball park dog in the other.

So you have the middle age fans at the park. They aren't as prone as the younger set to being rowdy. Instead of going to the park, they buy the Red Fox clothing to show their support. Jerseys, hats, etc. While the older folks are at the park, the younger ones are in a sports bar watching the game and cheering for them. Also Boston is not as rowdy city. You don't hear of Boston having riots. And Boston is a city of young college kids who can't afford to get into trouble by acting up. If their college gets wind of them raising hell, they can be/are facing expulsion from their college. So then they have to face their parents who are supporting them. The only time you may hear of us making a loud noise is when it comes to the Yankees in New York. Yet at the same time we have given a Yankee player a standing ovation at Fenway or even at their park if the player has accomplished or set a new record. We recognize a personal accomplishment and appreciate it. So if a Ranger hit a grand slam, we would give that player a standing ovation even in their own park.
We're very much like that, too. I was raised to cheer good baseball, regardless of team. I very rarely boo anyone unless it is deserved - fight breaking out, intentionally bad umpire calls, etc.

We also limit ourselves to 1 beer at the game because we want to remember how the game went. I've been known to applaud the Red Sox on many occasions - especially against the Yankees. No love for the Yankees in Texas either.

I also love how each ball park has their own spin on food. Rumor has it that Nachos were invented at the old Rangers ball park in Arlington. I've gotten some of the best BBQ at Globe Life Park (the "new" Rangers ball park). The BBQ turkey sandwich was outstanding. Expensive, but outstanding.

Go Red Sox! Hope they win.

Rangers were destroyed by the Angels 10-1 today. This is a rebuilding year... <sigh>

How cool is that? My bucket list is to get to as many ball parks as I possibly can. I was raised around loving baseball. I don't know any other ways to spend time this time of year. Unless you count Science Fiction conventions and Renaissance Faires.
(Did I just out myself as a nerd??? )
