happy birthday fenway park

Fenway Park turned 99 today. For all its faults, it's really a special place and there would be rioting in the streets before anyone would allow it to come down. And next Thursday, you can purchase a commemorative brick with a message that will be placed in the concourse spanning from Gates B to C in honor of the 100th birthday next year. Pretty cool, huh?

Makes me think of my own memories and that great writing in Field of Dreams:  

America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.
