10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Fenway Park

Time in traffic: 2 hours
Cost for parking: $45
Seeing a Red Sox game at Fenway Park: Priceless

But that's not the best part. The good story behind it all is how my buddy Chris made it happen. I dropped him off at his office on Boylston Street this morning. On the way, I asked him if his company had any seats and if he could "hook it up." He said, "I doubt it, but I'll see what I can do." At 10:00 a.m., his National Sales Manager said that the individual who got the most new contacts in their territory would get tickets to the Red Sox game. Chris worked his ass of all day and won the contest! Not only did he win, but the seats he got were phenomenal - as you can tell from the picture below.

Fenway

I've never been to a baseball game where the fans were so into it. Everyone stood up and cheered for the last 1/2 hour of the game. The whole experience was incredible - definitely one of the top 10 sports moments of my life. Thanks Chris - you rock!

Hey, as an European who knows nothing about Baseball all I can say is: that's the pitch from 'Fever Pitch'... cool! ;)

Not a surprising statement from someone whose local club is the Rockies. It would be nice if they could create a situation down at Coors Field similar to this.
