Matt and Beth at Fanniel Hall!
We met up with them at down town crossing, and just walked around. Matt (McNally) sent us on a wild goose chase for some burritos. Only to find the resteraunt was closed, and ended up back at Fanniel Hall. We got our food, and found a nice place to sit outside were we sat, ate, talked and people watched! From there we walked to the North End and went to Mike's Pastery. The line was out the door, but Matt and Beth assured us it was worth the wait and that the line moves fast! They were right on both accounts. I was still stuffed from lunch, but decided that the Chocolate covered strawberries looked way to good to pass up! Matt got a eclair which had to have weighed 2lbs. McNally got a very yummy looking piece of chesse cake, and Beth chose a cannoli. Again we found a nice little

We had a great time! Beckett was pitching..and we were we ahead for just about the whole game. Althought the bats weren't very hot that night. I did all the typical Sox fan stuff, ate a fenway frank..aka the 5 dollar hotdog, participated in the 7 inning stretch, and sang "sweet Caroline" at the top of my lungs!
Big Papi, and JD Drew at Bat
Josh Becket pitching
Although I think that my favorite part of the game came when at the top of the 9th Jonathan Papelbon took the mound! The crowd went wild and they played the drop kick Murphy song that he danced to during the world series! Again we sang at the top of our lungs and laughed and has smiles ear to ear! Unfortunatly the first batter got on base, but then Pap started throwing some heat and struck the next to batters out looking. Then he threw some serious heat and the hitter got a piece of it and hit the wall. The play went under review because it hung on the wall for a sec before bouncing back into play..they called it a homerun. So that put the Mets ahead..and we didn't do anything with in the 9th. Oh well. Still a GREAT time!
Matt and I at the game!
