Meh, no big deal, right? I mean, who needs METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH, and ANTHRAX when we here in Boston have BACKSTREET BOYS and the effing NEW KIDS coming to Fenway Park this summer? Take that, House That Steinbrenner built.
Now, while I know there is no love for anything Yankee-related 'round these parts, it would be pretty cool if Mariano Rivera walked on stage to the opening chords of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," as he does before closing out games in the Bronx. With that in mind, maybe we can convince Jonathan Papelbon to walk out from the Fenway bullpen as Backstreet offers us "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)."
