    John Kerry Booed at Fenway Park

    Now if Bostonians are booing Kerry, shouldn't that tell the rest of the country something about him? I mean, that is his hometown.

    That's just weird! The article doesn't say why though. Perhaps because of the inconveinence of the Convention? How many votes he's missed? They hate his guts?

    From what I understand, Kerry is NOT AT ALL liked in MASS. Yes, he has been elected to the Senate several times, but c'mon, we are talking about the land of Kennedy. I wonder how many elections were "fixed"?!

    Might have been cause he couldn't throw the ball all the way to the catcher. You know--a baseball crowd.

    I remember hearing somewhere that Bostonians in general were pretty peeved at teh DNC being in town and disrupting lives. They've got roads all over the place closed, a major bridge closed down. Bostonians are being forced to go out of their way because of Kerry and his merry little crowd and they are none too happy.

    Another ironic part of the story is the catcher was just back from serving in Iraq. If I were him, Id have picked up the ball and wailed it right at Kerry's head.

    Its also my understanding that the soldier was originally slated to throw out the first pitch and got delegated to catcher when Kerry decided he was a baseball fan. Couple that with a pitch that bounces in the dirt five feet in front of him, Im surprised as well that he didnt bean Kerry
