Rise and Shine

A New England Tradition may be starting an hour earlier:

The Red Sox tradition of playing a morning game on Patriots Day is getting tweaked for 2007. With the start of the Boston Marathon pushed up to 10 a.m., the Sox have obtained permission from Major League Baseball and the players’ union to start their Patriots Day game, traditionally an 11:05 start, an hour earlier.

As a Red Sox season ticket holder this is a game that I look forward to attending each year. The early start can’t be beat and then there is nothing better than pulling a Rosie Ruiz and finishing off the marathon
