I sure wish I was gonna be at the game tonight. But I will be watching on TV. We have been to 11 games this year. And we have tickets for the game Friday night! YEAH! I think it’s awesome we set a sell out record but it’s kind of bad too for us fans that can’t go to all the games because we can’t get tickets & they cost so much. I was talking to people I know that used to go to Fenway 40 or 50 years ago. They told me lots of cool stories like you could go the day of the game and buy a ticket cheap because not many people went to the games. And you could hang out by the field and get autographs and stuff like that. Sometimes I wish it was still like that because It reminds me of how the North Shore Spirit games were. I went to almost every North Shore Spirit game for 5 years. I really miss the Spirit.
The players, people who worked there and other fans all knew my name. We could hang out by the field and get autographs when the guys were on the field and after the game. The players and managers were always so nice to us kids and treated us like we were important. We laughed, cheered and even cried together. It was like a big family. We were family because we all loved the North Shore Spirit. Sometimes when there wasn’t a Spirit game the Fraser Faithful would get together to watch Red Sox games. I miss the North Shore Spirit especially my favorite catcher Alex Trezza and still cry sometimes because the team is never coming back. Their last game was in 2007.
But I’ve been a Red Sox fan since I can remember and I’m glad I have the Red Sox and Red Sox Nation. I’m glad I am a Kid Nation Captain and part of the Red Sox Nation family. Thanks Remy, Regular Rob, Joe Chamas, PAPELBON, Schilling, Pedroia, Kid Nation Captains and the rest of my Red Sox family. You’re the best. Sometimes I don’t think people know how much the Red Sox means to us kids. It’s like family and Fenway park is like home. It’s a place we can go and have fun and be a part of a big family where everybody belongs. When you’re cheering for the Red Sox no one cares is you’re a little kid or old. It doesn’t matter how fast you can run or how smart you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor or one of the cool kids. We just love the Red Sox so we’re family.
Now if we can just beat the Rays every game in this home stand take back the lead in the AL. I’m glad Lester is pitching. I like him and it was awesome watching him pitch a no hitter. He got cured of cancer & I hope everybody realizes how important it is to find a care for cancer so no more people die from it.
I love watching Manny play- he’s fun to watch but lately I’ve been getting pretty upset with him. He acts like he’s not trying and that’s just wrong. Sometimes I wonder if he’s trying to make the Sox lose or whether he just doesn’t care. I think he’s acting like a spoiled brat and is being disrespectful to the coaches and his team members. If Iacted like that I’s lose my allowance and get grounded probably for life. I hope he straightens out because it has to be hard for the other guys on the team.
I am so excited. I can’t believe it. The Boston Red Sox just called. I am one of 25 finalists in the Boston Red Sox Kid Nation Captains Contest! really! They called me. it said Red Sox on the caller ID. At first I couldn’t say anything. I just jumped up and down. Then I screamed so loud my Grandma said she’s almost deaf I can’t believe it. Somebody pinch me. They only pick 12 kids to be captains so I need everybody to vote for me when the voting starts
And JON LESTER pitched a no hitter. This is the best day! Jon Lester had cancer & now he pitched a no hitter. It was only the 18th no hitter since the Red Sox started. It was awesome
Yesterday I went to the Celtics Game 7 with some people from the YMCA. It was fun being with my friends. I’m glad the Celtics won but I’m even happier the Red Sox won & I’m so EXCITED about the Kids Nation. Everyone PLEASE vote for me. I would be a good captain. Here’s my essay I wrote for the contest & my answer to the question about what I’d ask a player. I have to go to bed now because it’s past my bedtime & I’ll be up late tomorrow because it’s my play. I’m Lucy in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.”
