So we went up to Fenway Park last night as it was Star Wars Night. With an exclusive ticket, fans could obtain a Jedi Mookie Betts bobble. Only limited to 2,500, fans got the opportunity to add this beauty to their collection.
We didn’t hit any traffic until Downtown Boston which was brutal. Bumper to bumper which delayed some time. As soon as we arrived, the line to get the Jedi Mookie was out the door. We weren’t going to stand there like ducks, so we went to the Cask N Flagon for a quick pop. If you’ve been to Fenway and drank before the game, you know the Cask is the place to go. Tons of action and it settled the nerves after a long drive with a few beers.
We met up with another Sniper and he tipped us off that the Red Sox had recently put up a bobblehead display inside the park. It took awhile to find, but we got there. Very impressive collection as there were some old school nodders, minor league ones, current Boston SGA’s and a few FOCO’s sprinkled in. All the bobbles were sitting on a flat platform that vibrated so the bobbles could move. Very cool idea. It wasn’t anything like down in Miami and their display of bobbles, but the Sox are coming around.
We then headed straight to the team store to get the Jedi Mookie’s. The line wasn’t too long as we got right in. There were not to many BD&A boxes left as the majority of fans had already scooped theirs up. I knew these special edition tickets would sell fast and it proved to be right.
Overall, good trip and granted the Sox lost, we did catch a quick inning. With two young daughters, the bobble wife at home and responsibilities, we had to cut bait and head home. This was one of many trips around the East Coast that we will be making and it’s way to early to get burnt out.
Here’s some photo’s of the Jedi/Mookie trip last night. And by the way, that “Spend $100.00” and receive a Jedi Mookie bobble is a bullshit deal. I hope there wasn’t any suckers who pulled the trigger on that.
