My brother is my primary partner in crime when it comes to Red Sox and Bruins games, so it was only fitting that he was my partner in crime for when the two came together for skating at Fenway yesterday.

“You know, I realize that this is amazing. But it’s so surreal right now,” Tommy said as we made a lap around the rink. As he deftly navigated around fellow skaters and I…well, let’s be honest, vowed to learn how to come to a stop this winter, he looked around. “I’m not going to fully realize that this happened until after it’s over.”

Many happy holiday wishes to you and yours. Merry Christmas!
