Over the weekend ,5/17/03 my family and I went to Boston and my parents one these Sox tickets so my dad and my 2 sisters and I went to Fenway park and we had a great time but it would have been a lot better if the Sox won. I was born in Maine so it is a family tradition to be a Sox fan. We went to see the Sox in 2001 or 2002 I can't remember and it was a great game. They Won!!!!!!!!!! For Christmas my dad got the CD and record of the Impossible Dream and we know the song about Carl Yazstrempski by heart. I started playing my self when I was about six or seven. My dad has almost always been the Coach. As a dedicated fan I have a couple Nomar posters and Manny and Pedro and I think my dad and I have never missed a game we either see it on TV or we listen to it on the radio. It is kind of what my family does. I love it.

So when I was at my school it was the time for the bookfair and I was determined to add to my collection of Red Sox stuff so when I was looking through the posters I found this Nomar poster and I totally SPAZZED! As usual I had to by the poster and I did.

Everyone in my family thinks I became a big baseball fan and especially a Sox fan is because when I was little my dad was watching the Sox game and I was in his lap and the someone hits a home run I think and I was only about two and my dad screams so loud I jump up so high.

Alright, all of you know that I am a Red Sox fan and naturally can't stand the New York Stankees and as most of you know; Derek Jeter is in Trenton this week playing with the Trenton Thunder. Well anyway; Frankie, Dana, Melissa and I are eating at Parkside Diner in Ewing NJ tonight and Jeter walks in with what looked like a friend and a body guard.

As usual some kids walk up to his table and ask him to sign a few things, which he did. We finish up eating and I run home real quick to pick up a couple things for him to sign. I grabbed a marker, a bat and one of the greatest t-shirts I have ever seen. An authentic "Yankees Suck" t-shirt which I bought from some drunk Mick on Lansdowne Street outside of Fenway Park (yes, I'm Irish too). It's a Boston classic! So, I fold the shirt up nice and neat without showing the writing on front and leave it in the car.

I come back to the Diner, and a small crowd gathered inside and outside. Frankie, being the jackass that he is; tells the waitress that he wants to pick up Jeter's bill. Like this guy doesn't have more money than god and he needs this 23 year old jerk paying his $22.00 food bill? Who are you Frankie, Joe Millionaire now? Oh well, your the fool! haha. Oh, and unfortunately, yes he's a Yankee fan.

The four of us get up to leave and Jeter stands up, shakes our hands and thanks dill-hole for picking up his bill. I tell Jeter that I have a couple things in the car and asked if he would sign them on his way out. I gave Melissa the bat to get signed since she is prettier than me, hahaha and had a better shot at getting it signed. He signed the bat with no problem, then grabbed the shirt (still folded up) and signed it before going on to the others who were standing there. As I'm standing there, I open up the shirt for everyone to read: YANKEES SUCK! with Derek's signature. There was a few pissed off Yankees fans, but the laughs from the other's was well worth it. haha !

So, a normal Thursday night ended with us meeting a future Hall of Famer (yeah, he's good but not better than Garciaparra) and having him sign a bat and a priceless t-shirt. Well, thats my story ... hope you liked it. I gotta run now and frame this bad boy. haha

two summers ago i was in toronto, and it just so happened that the redsoxx were too! so me and my family got tickets to the game that night, they were really good seats, 14 th row, 1st base line, anyway, during batting practice, me my brother, sister and cousin watched, and finally, Nomar came over. he came right up to me, asked if i had a pen, and signed my program, ticket, and tee-shirt...... HE HELD MY ARM!! then later that night we caught a foul ball!! They won too! heh, anyway, that game made me a relentless Nomar fan, i pray for a speedy recovery every night!

I have played baseball since I was about 5 years old and have always been a huge Cal Ripken fan. I still love Cal to this very day and will always remember what a great ballplayer he was and also what a great person he was. I just recently became a huge Nomar and Red sox fan when the recent issue of Sports Illustrated came out. It showed the work ethic of Nomar and how he truly treats it as his job and works to get better. In several ways he reminds me of Ripken and I am glad that I now have someone as an idol to carry on Ripkens image. I am a senior in high school playing for a state condtending team. I am so moved by Nomars work ethic that I have actually began lifting again and swinging a bat whenever I find time. When I am on the playing field I even envision that I am seeing the game through Nomar's eyes and it gives me a tremendous amount of confidence.......In our game last night I went 2-4 with a grand slam, a double, 7 RBI's and 3 assists at shortstop. Nomar has really enhanced my love for the game and has even brought back my dream of playing professionally. I love the Sox and hope they have an awesome season.....I also hope nomar reaches the "Hitter's Holy Grail: 400"!!
Nomar/Sox fan,
