Just as I was getting over the New England Patriots’ losing the Super Bowl. To the New York Giants. Again.
Jet Blue Park, the brand spanking new spring training home of my favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox (like my colleague Posie Wilkinson, I too am a Boston girl) opened to visits from the public on Saturday. It will officially open for the BoSox’s first exhibition game of the 2012 season at the end of this week. While on the outside, the stadium looks modern and artsy, the ballpark inside is as authentic a recreation of Fenway Park as one could possibly imagine. It has all the same field dimensions, it has the same scoreboard, it even has its very own – you guessed it – Green Monstah.
What it doesn’t have, however, is the JetBluePark.com domain name.
According to NESN, some Cubs fan named Eric Engelman went out and registered the domain and redirected it to the official site of…the New York Yankees. Of all the teams in the whole league, it had to be the Yankees.
No word yet on what this joker Engelman plans to do with the domain name. But I’m willing to bet he won’t be redirecting it to a Cubs World Series Championship site anytime soon.
Domain name or no, at least we broke our curse.
