Red Sox's "Sellout" "Streak" "Ends"

The Red Sox's 10-year sellout streak, which never actually existed, was finally dispatched with a press box announcement. Over the loudspeaker came the number: 30,862. And that was it.

The Quasimodo Of Fenway: A Creation Of The Devil, Keeper Of The…

He keeps his watch at night, working the ancient machinery that signals to the public the fortunes of the times. Some call him a monster, but it is within the Monster he hides from the visitors who curse him for the bad news he brings evening after evening.

Chipper Jones, Your Ass Makes Women Go Crazy

A little moment of levity to break up all the dark vibes floating around would be nice, yes? Well, you can thank this woman sitting in the front row at Shithole Fenway Park watching Chipper take some hacks in the on-deck circle. Chipper is in the middle of his goodbye tour and it appears one fan would like to take a… » 6/23/12 11:30am 6/23/12 11:30am

New York Post Front Page Kicks Nonsensical Ass

Fenway Park has been in the news a lot of late. There was the touching Field of Dreams-inspired story of the father and son who built their own replica Fenway in the vastness of Oregon.

Oregon Father And Son Build 1/3-Scale Fenway Park Replica On Their Farm

What was your backyard like? Perhaps you had a tire swing, or a play structure, or an above-ground pool. My yard abutted wetlands; mosquitos rose angrily every spring. Chances are, whatever you had, it wasn't as cool as what Jim Maciariello and his son Ben built in Drain, Oregon. » 4/20/12 1:45pm 4/20/12 1:45pm

From The Sports Guy Vault: Bill Simmons Says Tear Down Fenway Park

Let's return to the Bill Simmons Archive, a collection of Boston Sports Guy columns salvaged from the defunct AOL Digital Cities. In honor of Red Sox opening day, let's look at an old column calling for the demolition of Fenway Park—and the construction of something totally new and different in its place. » 4/05/12 3:20pm 4/05/12 3:20pm

In 1995, An ESPN Cameraman Captured Fenway Fans Having An…

Oh, 1997. Back when we thought murdering Vince Foster was the worst our government could do. Back when we could watch both Mad About You and Caroline in the City. Back when the Red Sox were so mediocre and uninteresting that over-the-jorts horndoggery could occur in a half-empty Fenway Park. These were the lean years… » 8/07/11 3:00pm 8/07/11 3:00pm
