Fenway Park, kids. Site of much memorable baseball history. But I think Bette Davis said it best:

"What a dump."

The weird start time for the Monday game is because it's Patriots Day, which is a Massachusetts state holiday commemorating the battles of Lexington and Concord. Those battles actually took place on the 19th of April in 1775, but let's not split too many hairs. Everyone prefers to have their holidays on a Monday. Even evil, misguided Red Sox fans. So the third Monday in April has become the day. And that's also the day they hold the Boston Marathon. Since 1903 the Red Sox have played at 11:00 AM so that the crowd can file out into Kenmore Square and cheer the runners over the final mile. And if they've been doing it this way for a hundred years... oh, let them have their fun.

There's simply no end to the useless information I'm here to provide.
