A Dream Come True


Years from now, there will be hundreds of thousands of folks who'll say they were there. Memories will dim and wannabes will exaggerate and it will be impossible to prove who really sat in Fenway Park Sept. 1, 2007, and who watched it on television or heard it on the radio.
It was a night dripping with fate, fame, and circumstance.
Clay Buchholz wasn't even supposed to pitch at Fenway Park last night. He had only one game of big league experience under his belt and he was still in the minor leagues Friday.
And then last night, he was back in the Show, pitching a 10-0 no-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles in his second start in the big leagues. At the age of 23. And he told us, "This is what you dream about growing up."

If you can dream it, you can achieve it.

I was at work and got a call from my BF to turn on the game. I saw the last couple innings. FANTASTIC! Just what the team needed!

How very cool is that! My husband and I were at the Indians game when Lenny Barker pitched a perfect game. It was totally incredible. This was the "old" tribe in the "old" stadium. A cool (like 50 degrees with winds coming off the Lake) Friday night in May 1981. I wanted to leave after the second inning. There were maybe 10,000 people there. But, over time, that number has grown to more than 100,000. EVERYONE was there! LOL.
