Another Goofy NOG Gimmick: A Fenway Farm

"Fenway Farms"
Wouldn't it be nice if the Red Sox ownership group focused exclusively on baseball? Instead, we get foreign soccer, NASCAR racing, a sports marketing agency, NESN and The Boston Globe to clutter their minds. And now, we can add organic gardening to the portfolio. Apparently, John Henry's wife (Linda Pizzuti Henry) cooked up the idea of Fenway Farms—a 5,000 square foot rooftop organic garden behind the park's GATE A facade. Folks, you just can't make this stuff up. The "farm" will feature: "...a rotating lineup of seasonal vegetables, from kale to sweet peppers, along with herbs." Isn't that special? The 4,000 pounds of produce will be used at food concessions in the park. This will include the elite EMC Club—because who the heck else (besides Mike Dukakis) would eat kale but the beautiful people in the toney suites? Oh, it gets better. The politically-correct NOG agenda must be served as well. So, Fenway Farms "reduces energy costs by insulating the building below it and will be a “teaching tool” for area children about healthy eating and the local environment." How insufferable are these guys?
