A Pizza and Beer Bash At Fenway
The Red Sox won handily 7-2 over the Angels on Patriots Day yesterday, with Josh Beckett pitching six solid innings and David Ortiz bashing his fourth home run of the season. But that's not what this game will be remembered for.
J.D. Drew hit a foul pop in the bottom of the seventh into the left field stands, and a Red Sox fan with a beer in his hands missed it and beer went flying from some of the other fans. But another fan behind him tossed an entire $8 slice of pizza right at him ($8 for a slice of pizza?) and it hit him, and NESN's cameras picked up the whole thing, and now it is all over the Internet. It's an absolute riot.
What a waste of good (or is that bad?) pizza.
Terry Francona had the best line about it.
"As long as they're not throwing them at me or us, that's OK."
