Brief update

Yeah, I'm Boston and having a great time so far. Spent a few days with two of my sisters - one in CT and one in NH - then came into the Hub on Monday morning. I've been eating too much - drinking too many beers - and enjoying the sights.

Yesterday (Tuesday) I visited the Museum of Science for the first time. It would be a great place to take kids - lots of interactive exhibits - but I was there to see their "Baseball as America" exhibit. They brought in a ton of stuff from the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, including Schilling's Bloody Sock and Lowell's hat from the '07 World Series - and it was great fun. I think I spent over 90 minutes soaking it all in. At one point, I was asking an employee a question and she said, you must really be enjoying this. I saw you earlier with a big smile on your face!

And a note for those wishing to go: they have some great discounts available IF YOU ASK! When I did, I discovered that teachers get in FREE! I just had to show a faculty ID and I saved the $19.50 admission. Wow!

After I walked over to the North End and had "the best pizza in America" (according to a fellow tourist outside) at Pizzeria Regina. Good - but heavy. That didn't stop me from visiting Mike's Pastry for an incredible tiramisu! Then pre-game at the Cask 'n' Flagon with friends from Surviving Grady.

Of course, I nearly got to see a no-hitter last night - but not by the Red Sox, unfortunately. I must admit that by the 8th, I was kinda hoping John Lackey would get the no-hitter - it would have been fun to have seen one in person (One of those Bucket List items, I think).

Karma must change tonight. I've been to 5 losses in a row - 2 in Tampa, then Friday's loss to the Yankees (although I had a great time and have great seats), then these two vs. Angels. WE WILL WIN TONIGHT!

So it's all your fault! You're 0 for 6. Bummer.

The Museum of Science sounds great. Do they give discounts/free passes to people who've come 12000 miles? Or, finally a use for my AARP membership:)
