Boston College To Play Notre Dame At Fenway

Patriots (Pre-Flying Elvis) At Fenway Park
In their never-ending effort to squeeze every last dime out of their 101-year old stadium, the Red Sox owners have OK'd a college football game at Fenway Park. The Boston College Eagles will face the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame on November 21st, 2015 at America's Most Exploited Ballpark. Well, at least the baseball playing surface can't get ruined—as it has been during moronic in-season music events at Fenway. As one who actually attended Boston Patriots games at Fenway in the 1960s, I can tell you that it stinks as a football venue. This is yet another dumb idea for our so-called "cathedral of baseball"—getting abused yet again for a cheap buck. Way to go, NOG.
