Boston, Here We Come!

Tonight, Notre Dame plays Boston College at Fenway Park in Boston, a city with deep Irish-American roots.  It's actually an away game for BC and a home game for the Irish, their "Shamrock Series" game for 2015. (Each year since the Shamrock Series began in 2009, ND has had one home-away-from-home game per season on its schedule.)
So tonight, my husband and I are going to be at Fenway, cheering on our boys in blue green and gold.  They're going to be wearing new uniforms designed specially for the occasion.


You know what else looks pretty ding-dang snazzy?  Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, with a football field where the baseball diamond should be.
That's Fenway's famous "Green Monster" on the left.

I am so excited for this game.  We put in for tickets ages ago, knowing that it might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Notre Dame play a football game at this historic ball field--and lucky for us, it's only about an hour's drive from our home.

Right after the game ends (very late tonight!), we're heading up to our lake house in NY to meet up with our oldest son and his family (he's the dad of four daughters, four and under) to spend Thanksgiving week together.

Notre Dame at Fenway...grandchildren at Oyster just doesn't get any better than this.

Go Irish!


  1. Instead of "Right after the game ends," I should have written "Right after ND beats BC handily"--my bad. ;)

  2. I hope they win for you. I like the snazzy green uniforms! Enjoy your time at Oyster Haven with family. I am sure your granddaughters will love exploring the new house!

    1. Thanks, Madeline! We are having a wonderful week with our precious girls! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I'm no fan of those uniforms, but I am a fan of their WIN! Hope you had a wonderful time at the game, and enjoy that family Thanksgiving celebration!

    1. You know, Barb, I'm not sure about the uniforms now either . If I believed in jinxes, I'd think that's what happens when they wear green. I've decided I like them in their blue and gold best.

      Have a great Thanksgiving!
