Boston Meetup August 2008

I’m going to be in the Boston area for a significant chunk of August this summer.  Hoping to catch at least one game at Fenway if anyone’s interested.  Right now, I’m trying to get tickets for the August 14th game against Texas since some friends from Seattle will be at that one.  I’m open to attending multiple games while I’m in town, though.  Or just meeting up for drinks someplace.

I can’t get up there around that time. I will be up for the game on 8/3, but also have family obligations around then.

My now-publicized absence should be a boon to meetup attendance. So there’s that.

I might be in the area. I can’t commit right now, but it’s a possibility.

If vi doesn’t come, I guess I’ll have to Connecticut represent.

I’ll be in New England from August 7th through the 23rd.  So I can be reasonably flexible.

Y’all should try for Aug. 9th, the “Futures at Fenway” games. Single-admission doubleheader: First game is Lowell vs. Hudson Valley, second game is Pawtucket vs. Charlotte. Top ticket price is $30, with pretty decent seats for $10.

That is, in addition to whatever Mattbert’s plan was.

That sounds like an excellent plan!

I have my tickets to the August 14th game.  Anyone interested in meeting up for that game and/or the futures game(s) on the 9th and/or drinks before either one?

As an added enticement/entertainment, there are rumors that Joe Bivens will try to get a hit off me if we can find a vacant ballfield somewhere and arrange some free time in common.

He just won’t hit it very far.

Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?

Straight as an arrow, though.  Little dribblers back to the mound…all day long, baby!
