One of the coolest events organized by the MET International every semester is the free Red Sox Game. I went to one last semester where the Red Sox played the Yankees, and last Friday we saw one against the Orioles.
These sporting events are the clear representation of American culture. The mass of people dressed with their team’s apparel wait at the gates to cross the security check. Once you’ve crossed, you enter a whole new universe! Under the stands of the stadium there are food stands, baseball caps and t-shirt stores, and people walking around like ants making their way to their seats.
Once you have found your seat, there really isn’t much to see. Baseball is more of a social event than anything else! People go there to talk, have a beer and a hot dog, and maybe watch some small figures bat and run. :) You get to see someone sing the American National Anthem, experience their patriotism, and see Americans in their natural habitat!
Both times I went, the Red Sox won, and after the game was over we went out to celebrate the game with all of the real fans. This is a really worthwhile experience! Thank you MET! :)
