20 days and counting…

In honor of the first Yankees/Red Sox game of the season (okay, pre-season), let me just remind everyone that opening day is only 20 days away. Sweet.

Just to prove to myself that my son (Xander, age 14) doesn’t read my blog, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’ve told him that we’re going out together on April 15. He doesn’t know where. Well, as an official member of Red Sox Nation (a Monster member, no less), I was able to acquire a pair of front row tickets on the Green Monster in Fenway Park.

I’ve always said to my wife that someday before I die, I was going to get monster seats. That someday is April 15. Hey, why wait, even if I did have to take out a second mortgage to afford them?

(That was an exaggeration, if only a small one.)

Don’t tell anybody about this. If the boy comes to me tomorrow and knows about the game, then somebody here said something. 😉
