Even in Margaritaville....


Saturday night was Jimmy Buffett's 2nd show in Gilette Stadium.
My husband and I were lucky enough to go, with some very good friends of ours.
Our seats were no where near where this picture was taken (thanks to a guy named Hugh for posting this on flickr!)
What I found so incredible, and very amusing, was the enormous presence of Red Sox Nation. OK we were in MA, so of course it's more likely to happen, but here we were...
in the middle of a show...
50,000 screaming fans...
Parrotheads everywhere...
And the 2 rows surrounding where we sat, all anyone could talk about, was the Red Sox. Between each song, someone would text a friend or check their online phone service, for score updates. Then the message would get sent up 22 seats, back another row, and back down again.
Even in the heart of Margaritaville, in the midst of hawaiian shirts, leis, hats of pirates, parrots, volcanos, and cheeseburgers, people's focus while under the obvious influence of margaritas and Landshark beers, were the RED SOX.
Wicked awesome!
