Boston Red Sox versus Colorado Rockies.
Time for Lauren, one of my best friends and lifelong Sox fan, to make it to Denver for a World Series weekend. We scored two tickets off CraigsList to see Game 3, the first World Series game ever played at Coors Field. Of course we were in the very, very, very top row of Coors Field, even above the line of purple row of seats that demarks one mile high, but no matter.
Here’s Lauren more than a half hour before the start of the game – Coors Field is almost already full!
And then fifteen minutes later the national anthem sung by Carrie Underwood (you can’t see her on the field because she’s standing behind home plate, but you can see her face televised on the left field scoreboard).
And then Lauren looking happy after the Red Sox scored six runs in the third and me looking sad and goofy.
The Rockies actually made a game out of it, but in the end lost. That bit sucked, but it sure was a night to remember.
