Wow. That was something else. Got a little dusty in the bleachers; especially when the rings were brought out by the servicement. Some comments:
- The nice receptions for Lowe and Roberts, the booing of Mendoza that you couldn’t really hear on TV, and the one by one of Pesky going down the line that I was not aware of until I saw it on tv. Great.
- While it was GREAT to see the current players mingle with the past players as the banner was raised; that song was terribly freaking lame. Awful.
- The merciliess booing of everything Yankee; and then the standing O for Rivera when he was introduced was PRICELESS. He even seemed to get a kick out of it, and the definitely paused for effect. Good stuff.
- Nice touch with the Boston Championship legends throwing out the first pitch. And the flyover was timed perfectly.
- What can I say about the game? Doug is a stud who hits bombs; and the mocking cheer of ARod when he cleanly fielded a ball was hilarious.
