Someone spotted me in the FS forum I see. Thanks Vin. ;)

The trip was awesome. It all went by too fast just as I had imagined it would. Toronto was fun, it didn't feel like I was in another country at all. I've been to Europe before and that had a dramatically different feel, but Toronto felt like I was still in NY still but with funny money. :D Saw the hockey hall of fame,and the Stanly Cup was there along with the original cup which they keep in a vault. The whole room looks like a giant cathedral too.

The Rogers Centre is a kickass stadium and totally puts Shea to shame. We walked in 2 hours before gametime just as the retractable dome started to open. It's a beutiful sight to say the least. And there's a hotel built into the stadium too, and there are rooms that are built into the outfield so you literally watch the game from inside the stadium from the comfort of your own room. We didn't stay there though.

On the way to Boston we stopped at Niagara Falls for a couple of hours, then drove to Turning Stone Casino which was on the way. At some point the next morning we wound up in Boston. Our hotel was in a ****hole named Revere, sorry if any of you live there, but it's like a construction zone there. And I officially hate all Boston roadways, not because of the conditions, but rather how there are hardly any straight roads and there is no service road adjacent top any of the highways. We had to ask for directions numerous times because we couldn't find an entrance onto the Pike, 93, 1A.

But anyway, our first day there we drove into Fenway and that was a huge mistake, but I somehow found it by taking a few wrong turns. We ate at a sports bar named Game On which is built into Fenway. We watched Game 1 of the series and we felt like we were actually attending the game. At one point one Loretta hit a homer over the Green Monster and we watched the mad scramble to get the ball on Landome St. (sp?) It was awesome. The next day we walked into Fenway and watched Pedro get shalacked in his return to Fenway, but we still had a great time thanks to a bunch of funny guys near us. I barely saw any of the game after the 3rd inning because I was more entertained by the crown to be honest. And sometime around the 8th inning random Yankees Suck chants broke out among Mets and Sox fans alike. Then we drank ourselves silly at Game On and partied it up until closing time.

Oh and for the record, Boston has some of the hottest girls I've ever seen. I never saw so much box in 2.5 days.

If you read all of this, congrats. Because if I were you I probally wouldn't have. :chuckles:

sounds like you had a great time, even though the mets didnt play there best ball all year. It seems everytime i went to go see the devils play out of town they never win either. ive been to the island, boston, montreal, san jose. Boston roads are always under construction it seems.

Thanks Krysy. Last year we saw the Red Sox play the Orioles in Baltimore, and we then decided to make baseball a yearly trip.

Yeah they were terrible and still are. We saw them win Sunday's game in Toronto, but ever since then they've been playing like a minor league team. And it's nice to see someone as devoted to their team as I am. We haven't tackled the west coast yet, I think we might do that next year or the year after. After this trip I've been inside every AL east stadium, but no NL east stadiums outside the Mets. Ain't that some ****?

Welcome to Massachusetts bud! :thumbup: One of the key reasons I used to be afraid to drive in the city. Now it isn't so bad since I have a good idea of where I am there.

Driving to Fenway IS a bad idea. How much was parking? $30+? The street behind the Green Monster was Lansdowne St. Did you go to any of the clubs on that street? Pedro got rocked in his return game! I loved it!! Fenways crowd is very entertaining and the Yankees suck chant is a normal occurance even when we aren't playing the Yankees. What did you think of Fenway though? This was your first trip there wasn't it?

do you go with a booster/fan club or just a bunch of friends?
Nope no fan club, just friends I grew up with.

Yeah I'd imagine it taking some getting used to. The second day we left the car at the hotel and took the T train to the game. Couldn't have been any easier to navigate. :thumbup:

We parked in the garage down the block, cost $25. Pretty damn steep, but we were on vacation so money becomes no object. i didn't see any clubs on Lansdowne next to the Monster, but I probally didn't walk down far enough to spot them. We only went as far as the gate entrance at the Monster. And the only bar we went to was Game On. Regardless we still partied it up. :D Yeah, it was my first trip inside Fenway. I've been to Boston twice before but not during baseball season. Walking inside was simply amazing, like traveling through time. Although Shea is no modern marvel itself, but it's not a classic like Fenway by any means. I was amazed by how they managed to stuff a seat in every nook and cranny. I was thankful I didn't buy seats on field level towards the pesky pole. Those people can't possibly see **** from that angle with all those obstructions, haha. Our seats were in the bleachers, far away from the action by the digital scoreboard/TV.

I'm telling you man. They must have been college girls, because they all reminded me of the hotties that used to come to Hofstra for an 8AM class like they were going to a club afterwards.

VERY concentrated college population.... Boston probably has more colleges per sq. mile than any other city in the US. You should see the bars in Hyannis on summer weekends. There's more morals tossed over the bridges into Cape Cod Canal than cigarette butts.

You also probably saw some interesting things in Rehveah....
