Countdown to opener on at Fenway

DSCN0960 BOSTON -- It poured the whole time I was in Beantown but we're counting the days to Sunday night's season opener against the Yankees so I couldn't help myself. Yep, I hit the subway to head over to Fenway Park (left as it looked Monday afternoon) and get that spring feeling again.

Didn't go inside as I opted against the official tour for a later time. (Of course, I've been fortunate enough to see most every nook and cranny anyway during past trips to the ALCS and World Series). Stopped in the world famous souvenir store across the street and walked around the perimeter. Didn't mind the rain at all.

As it turned out, it was a big day at the park as the Sox were unveiling their 2010 changes to the mayor and  other bigwigs. As part of the 10-year initiative to really pump up the place for its 100th anniversary in 2012, there have been huge changes since we entered the 21st century and it's really helped modernize things.

The Boston Herald spent much of its story discussing the structural improvements to the park but did mention the food. The Boston Globe was big on the addition of veggie burgers.

The Globe has a small video you can check out here (embed code wasn't working so sorry if you clicked on it before and got nothing!)
