Thread: Crossing the pond to Red Sox Nation

    Crossing the pond to Red Sox Nation

    Afternoon everybody! Matt speaking from Glasgow (Scotland).

    I decided 'what the heck' and booked a last minute flight to Providence from Edinburgh this Sunday. This will be my first visit to the USA, on a spontaneous shoe-string.

    Hope to be at Fenway for the game against the Blue Jays on Monday or Tuesday.

    Welcome any tips. Thanks in advance for having me.

    How do you plan on getting to Boston from Providence? The train?
    Seasoning in AAA is overrated.

    Hi MVP 78,

    Probably train, yeah. I haven't ruled out the possibility of Uber/Lyft if somebody at the airport is willing to share.
    Would you recommend the Monday or Tuesday game and some places with good atmosphere before/after?

    Not sure there'd be a difference between Mon or Tues.

    Whoa that's a comprehensive guide to visiting Fenway! Cheers

    On a different note, I read some interesting news reports about the rising prices of food and drink at the park. I'm disappointed to read that it's averaging $9 a beer. The UK is certainly expensive in some ways but it would be unaffordable for many people to support their team at that price (after season tickets, transport and all the rest).

    All the price rises at Fenway are a shame. But that's how they pay for our expensive talent. You have to look at it as a luxury event now.

    How much are tickets for the sporting events you like where you live?
    Everybody here is out of sight
    They don't bark, and they don't bite
    They keep things loose, they keep things light
    Everybody was dancin' in the moonlight
