Red Sox greats remembered during recent trip to Boston and Fenway Park

BOSTON — Last weekend, I had a good time at Fenway Park again. Even though the Red Sox are having a forgettable season, I treasure any excursion to baseball’s oldest ballpark and pray that it lasts another 100 years. (It had its 100th birthday April 20, 2012.)

Fenway is like a Model T still taking the family on a ride through the countryside. A Delta DC 3 still carrying the mail from Jackson, Miss. to New Orleans, La., Mona Lisa continuing to smile and Bing Crosby singing “White Christmas” at the ice rink in December at Rockefeller Center.

As you board the Metropolitan Transit Authority or “T” at your hotel, you flashback to the Kingston Trio singing about a man, named Charlie, who boarded the train one day, never got off and is presumed to still be riding “neath the streets of Boston.”
