The news came down this afternoon that Terry Francona has reconsidered declining the Red Sox invitation to Friday's Fenway 100 year celebration. I am not sure what caused this change of heart, but it is only fitting the greatest manager of entire Red Sox history attend. I cannot wait to hear the ovation Tito will surely receive, not only as thanks for the 2 world titles, but as a chance to say goodbye as Sox skipper. It should be interesting to say the least to hear the reaction for Tito vs. Bobby V.
With all living former Sox players, coaches, and managers invited it will be a treat to see who does attend. We can savor the history of our ball park and team for a coupe of hours, and then get on with the business of 2012.
Thanks Terry for coming to our party
