Of course, Paul McCartney is most well known for being a member of the biggest band in music history, the Beatles, but he has also established himself as one of the top solo musicians of all time.  McCartney has produced countless platinum albums and he is a sensation in all parts of the world.  Seeing Paul McCartney live in concert is going to be a huge score for any music fan.

Fenway Park has several concerts this summer but this one by far is going to be the biggest show of the year in Boston.  Other concerts at Fenway Park include Jason Aldean as well as Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z.  I’m telling you, do not miss this concert!

The Boston Red Sox welcomed the Boston Bruins with open arms to Fenway Park on Sunday to celebrate the Stanley Cup Championship.

All Bruins players got to throw out a pitch for the first pitch of the game and had a duck boat tour around the field while holding the Stanley Cup.  The video board showed a highlight reel of all the great moments in the NHL playoffs.

From Nesn.com:

For about one hour Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, we were offered up just about the best example of what a winning sports town can produce when everything comes together just right.

It was practically an embarrassment of riches. Not that anyone should feel guilty about it.

Beneath sparkling skies, the duck boats rolled out of the center field gate filled with the Stanley Cup champions, who wore Red Sox caps and Bruins jerseys. After a ride around the warning track and a slow march with the Cup across the lawn, each one of them threw out a first pitch to a fleet of Red Sox players lined up dugout to dugout, all while the Cup sat perched on the rubber.

“There was a lot going on. I thought it was exciting,” manager Terry Francona said. “I think the fans enjoyed it, I think our players enjoyed it. I think the Brewers players enjoyed it. It was nice to see the Bruins get to celebrate their championship in our ballpark. I think everybody enjoyed themselves, and then when we score six in the first inning, it makes it even better.”

Then came the actual game, which immediately served up a reminder that the city not only has the best hockey team on the planet, but it just might have the best baseball team as well.

That’s where the guilty feeling set in.

Moments after the Sox gave out hugs to the Stanley Cup champs, they saw Tim Wakefield nearly strike out the side in the first inning. He missed out on the feat by a pitch, but the ovation after the frame was about as loud as you will find for a 1-2-3 top of the first.

Then, the best offense in baseball turned fans that were already out of their minds with elation into incredulous subjects.

Jacoby Ellsbury singled. Dustin Pedroia singled. After a wild pitch, Adrian Gonzalez reached on an error that scored a run. Kevin Youkilis sent a three-run shot over the Green Monster. David Ortiz singled. J.D. Drew singled.

Six batters. Each of them reached. Fenway Park, still reeling from the Bruins ceremony, was in a state of ecstasy.

There were two quick outs to bring the masses back to Earth, but a walk to Josh Reddick loaded the bases, and Ellsbury doubled in two runs in his second at-bat of the inning. The Bruins had barely left the field and it was 6-0. Many fans stood for the bulk of the hour.

“Phenomenal. It was absolutely phenomenal,” Wakefield said. “Watching the duck boats come in, it brought back a lot of memories of us in ’04 and ’07. Very happy for those guys. Got a chance to meet a lot of them in the clubhouse today and got my picture with the Cup. It was a lot of fun.”

Meanwhile, in the other dugout sat the Brewers, a team with three playoff appearances in 43 years that will forever be overshadowed by a football team, albeit a winning one, that plays two hours north. That is no knock on the AL Central leaders, but the dichotomy between the two organizations was notable — not only in their histories, but in the vibe which inhabits their respective cities.

Simply put, there are not many scenes like the one that played out Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park. Just do your best not to feel guilty about it.

Red Sox WinThe Boston Red Sox are still under .500.  They are only 24 games into the season and have spent most of the time in last place in the AL East.  As  a matter or fact, last night, they one game 3 vs the Baltimore Orioles to bypass the Oriels into 4th place.

The Red sox have not been struggling as far as ticket sales.  The streak continues at Fenway Park (the consecutive sell out streak that is) and the secondary ticket market (ticket companies like Front Row King, Fenway Tickets King, Tickets More and Stub Hub) are all showing very positive sales from Red Sox tickets.  The prices may be slightly less compared to previous seasons, however, there are people buying tickets and that’s the bottom line.

Red Sox fans are loyal and committed.  They will always have one of the largest fan bases in all of pro sports.  The team has the pitching staff, defensive staff and offensive staff to move to the top place in the AL East and even win the division.  It’s up to them to prove it.

Don’t get discouraged Boston fans… plenty more baseball to be played this summer!  October is a long time from now…

Being a sports fan in Boston right now has it’s advantages…

Boston Red Sox making a strong comeback and establishing themselves after a miserable start.

Boston Celtics sweeping the New York Knicks and putting them in their place.

Boston Bruins winning 3 straight games against the Montreal Canadiens.

The playoff schedule has worked out really nicely… Bruins game one night, Celtics the next, Bruins, Celtics, Bruins, Celtics, etc.  But if you had to choose one to watch (not both), what would you choose?  People in Chicago are dealing with the same thing… Blackhawks or Bulls.

Right now, the consensus is that the NHL Playoffs have proved to be more exciting than the NBA playoffs in cities where there are teams in both championship hunts.  At this point, I would watch Bruins and Canadiens over any Celtics match and I would choose the Blackhawks over the Bulls and Pacers.

What are your thoughts?  I am sure the NBA race will get better after the first round is completed.  The NHL has much better parity if you ask me.

To this point, this month, Boston Red Sox tickets are the 3rd best selling ticket among all sports tickets.  Other baseball teams in the top 5 include the New York Yankees (#1), and Minnesota Twins (#4).

Boston Red Sox tickets are always hot selling tickets for this time of the year mostly due to the fact that New Englander’s are so sick and tired of the snow, cold and lack of sunshine.  The Red Sox represent summer time, longer days, warm weather and (dare I say…) no snow!

The Red Sox 2011 home opener at Fenway Park is scheduled to be the Red Sox vs Yankees.  Other key games include the Red Sox vs Cubs (because the Cubs haven’t been to Fenway Park since the 1918 World Series), Red Sox vs Rays (because the rivalry just got stepped up when the Rays signed Damon and Ramirez), Red Sox vs Rangers (because the Rangers are now a competitive team) and many other division and inter league mach ups.

The 2011 Red Sox have a lot of new talent and have a great depth in the starting pitching rotation.  It will be interesting to watch this season play out.
