    True enough!

    Said that, yes, it is uncomfortable to watch a game in most seats of the park, the food is really awful and expensive and the tickets and souvenirs are very expensive as well, at least to me. Still I love it, I guess it can't be perfect LOL!.
    It makes it brutal for hometown fans. The cheap option is Pawtucket (which I'll be sad to see go).

    ...and for foreign fans MVP. Geez it takes at very least like 6,000 USD to go to Boston and attend 4-5 games a week, considering as well flight tickets, hotel, transportation, game tickets, souvenirs, restaurants, shopping, etc. for a party of 3.

    Oh I get it. I have no idea how you are able to afford it unless you're making the big bucks with your sports betting now.

    Well, I have to work my ass off 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week, to afford this hobby and others LOL!

    The sports betting helps but it's still just a hobby.
