At fenway that traffic thing, norm just means you're so low to the walkway, that people will be walking in front of you the first few innings, or everytime they get up to go somewhere..

Don't worry, you can just yell down in front, like everybody else does. (I get why people say that, but what do you expect people to do, never get up except during the end of or between an inning? [email protected]) Fenway is the worst place to watch a game to me, although the field is cool, it just is uncomfortable the whole time, and the fans are rude, even to other red sox fans. ha

The traffic advisory is right on. Front row of the loge sucks. I've sat there before. There is a rule at Fenway where if you leave the seating area, you arent allowed to come back in the middle of an at bat. They have security at the entrences to prevent you. But it still sucks. People walk in front of you the whole game.

You cant really yell that because they are right in your face. There is a walkway before the loge with non stop traffic. I agree completely about Fenway. I hate it.

I know I am pretty close to home ... behind the fence. Maybe it'll be a slow night where I can move around and take pics.

We'll see....

So how was it ChiTownAbs? At least if you had obstructed view, you prob were use to putting up with that, being such a cubs fan. I remember one time, getting tix at Wrigley right behind one of the poles, it was sorta funny for about 5 seconds. Yet another reason to kill yourself to get bleachers or decent tix.

Hopefully you had a nice time, and nice visit to Fenway. You should def do the tour, if you haven't, I remember discussing this before in another thread.

Edited to say.. Yes I know the game just ended, but getting the stage set for his details

I went to yesterday's game. Forgot that Sammy Sosa is now an Oriole, but I loved the booing he got.

The seat was OK. I probably wouldn't sit in the 100 level behind home again since it really is obstructed, and for your $90 you better get a blowjob with it. I'd sit along the 1st or 3rd base side.

I have pics online.

Pictures look pretty good, the seats don't look to bad either, assuming you were taking the pictures from them. At least you had a fun time!
