Small touches make Opening Day shine for Red Sox
Over here at Red Sox Monster, we like to crack wise, poking fun at players, fans, ourselves, readers -- it's an equal opportunity freak show, really.
Funny thing, though. When Opening Day arrives, I turn into an 8-year-old, equal parts jealous of fans who make the game and giddy to have sweet, sweet baseball return as a part of day-to-day life.
Fenway Park, you did it to me again this year -- even though I watched from a desk 450 miles away from Boston.
