Bucket List — Red Sox World Series: Game 2, October 23, 2013

I’ve been a Red Sox fan all my life and never thought I’d see them win a series, let alone go to a World Series game at Fenway Park.

I experienced the heartbreak of 1986 when they blew the series to the Mets and kept on supporting the team through the years. In 2003, was crushed again by the Yankees and 2004 didn’t look much better down 3-0 to our arch-rival. Thankfully, the tides turned and there was a miraculous come-back to beat the Yankees, then the sweep of the Cardinals to become 2004 World Champions. To win again three years later in 2007 was pure icing on the cake!

Six years later, the Sox were headed to the Series again and I was able to fly to Boston and bring my Dad to Game 2. The Sox lost the game, but we saw David Ortiz hit a homer over the Green Monster, John Lackey pitch a heck of a game, and I crossed an item off my bucket list: Watching a Red Sox Game in the World Series at Fenway Park with my Dad.
