Northeastern Religion

If anyone needs evidence as to the extent to which Boston belongs to the Red Sox: while I was there this week, I heard on local radio that at least one local Catholic school had sent a letter home telling parents that their kids didn't have to wear uniforms. Instead, the children were encouraged to wear red for the World Series.

While I was not able to obtain a ticket to game 1, I did walk around Fenway Park that morning. Old stadiums like Fenway and Wrigley Field in Chicago are interesting in that they are built into the fabric of their neighborhoods. Of course, newer stadiums are typically surrounded by parking lots.

That does mean that those going to games are better off taking the subway than driving. The few small lots available around the park were advertising spots available for $45 for "Fenway Events."
