Haven't paid too much attention over the years, but haven't we all been hearing bad crap about the "big dig" since like... the 80's?? Maybe its time for a freakin bridge instead of a tunnel

The big dig started around 10 years ago. Maybe less. It is a HUGE plan to change traffic routes throughout Boston. Nunerous foreman have been fired and hired since it began. People dying on the crews too. pretty amazing feet once it gets finished...if it ever gets finished. When it began they said it would be completed by 2004. The Big Dig=The Big Suck.

I was in Boston last summer. Part of town is an F'ing mess from that construction.

But it is the greatest city I have ever been to. I'd love to live up there but it's damn expensive and cold as F in the winter.

I stayed downtown...I forget the name of the hotel. Beside Postal Square I think it is. Near Faniel Hall. It was great. My girl suprised me and took me there for a long weekend. Went to Fenway. Ate at Cheers. Toured Sam Adams. Awesome.

I'll be back next summer...didn't have the cabbage to come up this summer b/c of the wedding.

Landsdowne street is tight. When you get kicked out of a Sox/Yankees game for picking on yankees fans, you can go party in a bar and watch the game! I should know, it happened to me and my brother.

Nope. $7. If you're military it's 7 bucks for standing room only. We just sat in peoples seats until they got back. in the meantime, we'd spit and throw stuff at Yankees fans. The ones that would be all dressed up in yankees stuff but didn't know **** about 'em. Just trying to look cool basically.

Bastard. My girl paid 75 stones per ticket last summer for the White Sox.



And every single American League game I've ever been too...no matter who's playing, turns into "Yankee's Suck" chant.
