I just wanted to take a moment to share a few images and thank everyone at Fenway last Saturday for the game against the Toronto Blue Jays for making my son's first trip to a Sox game a truly wonderful experience. As always, the Red Sox Nation represented itself with both class and die-hard fervor.

As a lifelong Red Sox fan living in the South, my trips to Fenway have been few and far-between, yet every time I get to make the trip I am reminded just what a treasure the park, the team, the city, and the fans truly are.
We traveled up from North Carolina to the ever-beautiful City of Boston to enjoy the game. My son -- himself a died-in-the-wool Sox fan -- absolutely loved it, despite the fact that the Sox lost. He was also thrilled to get a chance to see the pre-game tribute to Jason Varitek. He plays catcher in little league, and Varitek is the player he idolizes most.

Thanks to all of you for making his experience outstanding!
