On the Red Sox JumboTron at Fenway Park

Last Friday night we went to a Red Sox game with a large group of friends. Little did I know that a bunch of the group was in on a little secret. During the break between innings they always show announcements up on the jumbotron. We weren't far into the game when a bunch of people started yelling at me to look at it. Sure enough, there on the jumbotron was this congratulations for Heidi and my 11th anniversary.

Several folks had been put on "camera duty" to make sure they got a photo during the 10 seconds the announcement sits on the screen.

It was an excellent game. The Red Sox were down 3 runs for a good part of the game, and after tying it up at 4, they loaded up the bases and Damon hit a double that scored three runs in the bottom of the 8th. It's so cool to be at Fenway Park and feel the energy of the fans.

Oh, and yes. Heidi and I have indeed been married for 11 years now.
