This is not really a baseball story...but could it have an effect on the Boston Red Sox??
It has been announced that the New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys will be joining forces to perform a concert at Fenway Park on June the 11th of this year. Says New Kidder Donnie Wahlberg:
"This is a tremendous honor for us. As a group of Boston kids we never thought we would get an opportunity like this. Our dreams are coming true," New Kids' Donnie Wahlberg said. "And one of the best parts is that we get to share this moment with our friends the Backstreet Boys."
This won't have a direct effect on the Red Sox as they will be in a completely different country at the time (Canada), playing a series with the Toronto Blue Jays. However there is reason for concern.
Why am I given the option of a jump in a fan post? Anyways....
This article is just sort of a throw-away article that has been largely ignored by the majority of baseball, but I, for one, am deeply concerned.
As you may or may not know, I have been a great deal of knowledge and experience in thermo-dynamics and interdimensional physics. And if I'm interpreting my calculations correctly, there is reason to believe that having the Backstreet Boys and the New Kids on the Block on the same stage at at the same moment could cause a black hole of suck that could potentially eradicate Fenway Park, among other possible backlashes of various degrees of severity.
The fact that the Boston Red Sox ownership group and the City of Boston are allowing this to take place is disconcerting, to say the least! We, as fans of both baseball and humanity, must band together to prevent this from occurring! Lives could depend upon it!
WHO'S COMIN' WITH ME?
What calamity will befall us if we allow this to concert to take place?
