Fenway Park

Fenway Park is magical. There's no ballpark, stadium or arena quite like it. Squeezed into the Fenway section of Boston, it's old, cramped and irritable, but there's no better place, no more intimate setting, for a baseball game. It is packed every night with among the most frantic, most sophisticated fans in the game. It is funky and eccentric, full of odd-wall angles and secret hiding places. Poet Donald Hall called it "a huge pinball machine designed by a mad sculptor.''

-A nice article on Fenway and other old ballparks.

Hey Congrats on the new design!

Sorry, if I'm late, I usually just read IJ from my bloglines.

Actually working on trying to get bloglines to recongize the new feed but so far with no luck.

In the meantime I've made a new bloglines feed which you can subscribe to if you wish. It's on the top of the right column.
