Boston culture, Red Sox

Ted Williams’ Toe

Common sense would dictate that Ipswich Street be avoided like the Common at 3am today of all days, but I absolutely couldn’t resist seeing the pre-Series Fenway hubbub. It was noisy; it was crazy-crowded; traffic crawled along Boylston; people hurried to touch the bronzed toe of Ted Williams’ statue; grown men were strolling around in baseball caps and suits. It was everything a celebration ought to be; for, make no mistake about it, we are celebrating bringing it…our team bringing the World Series to humble little ol’ Boston once again. No matter what, the “Go Sox” lights are up on the Pru, and red and blue lights shine from the Old Hancock. They can’t take that away from us true-Red fans. Ever.
