Poetic Justice

In a twist that you just could not script any better, the Red Sox and the Yankees will kick off the 2005 season at Yankee Stadium. Then, and this is where it gets fun, the Red Sox will play the Yankees at the 2005 home opener at Fenway Park, which also happens to be when the Red Sox will be receiving their World Series rings. Nothing could be finer than having Jeter, A-Fraud, et al sitting through the ceremonies when the Red Sox get their rings and raise the World Championship banner at Fenway. Teddy Ballgame is smiling down on us.

Update: The below video is of Opening Day at Fenway Park in 2005, when Mariano Rivera was announced before the game. The reaction of the Red Sox fans (vigorous roars and ovations!!) to Rivera’s introduction, but more importantly, Mo’s wide smile and reaction to the cheering, is just fantastic. I love everything about this video and it makes me smile every time I watch it.
