Fenway's Big Night
Boston Globe: The old ballpark opened its doors way back in 1912, but it wasn't until last night that it finally got, as Bruce Springsteen called it, "a good old rock 'n' roll baptism."
And because it was such a special occasion -- the first true rock concert in Fenway Park history -- Springsteen shook the place from center field with a "rock 'n' roll house party, a rock 'n' roll baptism, rock 'n' roll bar mitzvah, a rock 'n' roll exorcism."

And the fans -- chanting "Bruuuuuuce," waving their arms, bowing to Springsteen, dancing in the aisles -- nearly turned Fenway to rubble, going seemingly nuts when the E Street band played right next to the Green Monster.
