Before the melee, Fenway!
It was my honor and pleasure -as ever- to work Fenway Park this Halloween, especially with so much of my family swinging by to partake.
Here I am getting ready with a couple colleagues:
And we’re off:
Then comes my family:
Zachary with all three of the Red Sox World Series Trophies from this millennium:
Paul in the Home Team Dugout:
Paul by the famous Pesky’s Pole:

Check this out: Once when the cameraman came over, I told Amanda to get her camera ready, and VOILA:
Look closely in that haunted park you will see me, Amanda, Gladiator-Miles, Ladybug-Mary and Most of James up on the Jumbotron! You will also see that corpse *sitting UP.* Spooky!
If that wasn’t magic enough, when I was finally all packed up and (the last to be) leaving the park, Paul came to fetch me. He *knew* when I was done because he could *see* me inside the park from this place heretofore unknown to me by the name of BLEACHER BAR, where if you’re lucky you can sit right next to Center Field:
Although the bar operates outside the ballpark, you can see right inside it (even from the men’s *urinals*). Unbelievable.
Soon it’s time to bid adieu to cousins:
Daddy goes to fetch our ride, leaving me to enjoy a moment’s rest with my daughter and a beer. After a bit, this realization dawns on me and I notice her anew…. at 6pm on Halloween Night.
“Don’t you have someplace to BE?” I ask her. “Aren’t you a KID? Isn’t it HALLOWEEN? What are you doing in a BAR?”
“C’mon,” I say, grabbing my Giggling Princess Wolf Warrior Kitty. “Let’s get OUTTA here!”
And we do.
We gotta get CANDY!
