The Monster lurks in the Shadows


Today’s “Photo of the Week” needs no explanation. America’s greatest ballpark hosts the biggest game of the year tonight, and if Boston clinches it will be the first time a Sox team has hoisted the trophy at home in 98 years. 98 YEARS. Yes, the last time Fenway was home to a World Series clinching game that the Red Sox won, we beat the Cubs in six games with Babe Ruth starting (and winning) game four.

Jarret Izzo and I will be there tonight to root on the Olde Towne Team, hoping for a repeat of the last World Series Game 6 played 38 years ago, when this happened:

Fenway Park

Ah, September, the month that can’t decide whether it’s actually part of summer or fall. Do I wear shorts or jeans? Take my hoodie or leave it at home? I’m never sure. What I am sure of, on the other hand, is that it’s time for the baseball home stretch and a Sox time that is doing really well at not disappointing us. Friendly reminder – it’s not 2011, and I’m not feeling worried or on the fence about this team. Timely hitting, great bullpen, and that sense of actual, you know, camaraderie. Let this killer wide angle shot of Fenway (courtesy of MK Feeney) take you into the last weeks of the season and hopefully the playoffs…

Boston Strong

That is one amazing sand castle.

It makes me realize I’ve got a helluva lot of sand sculpting skills to learn to do if I ever want to create anything more than a big mound with a “moat” or the ever-classic “Human covered in sand” – the people that create these sculptures are impressive.

Twenty-five artists created 15 pieces surrounding the Boston Strong tribute sculpture as part of the annual National Sand Sculpting Festival at Revere Beach this past weekend.

And the rainbow in this photo is just the icing on the cake of amazingness, very fitting given the sentiments of the sculpture.

Thanks to Lee Costa for posting this gem on our We Love Beantown Flickr page. It’s not crazy hot anymore, but we’re still in the thick of summer, so get thee to a beach and get your sand sculpt on!
