It only took me eighteen years

If you have been with me for a while, you may know that I immigrated to the US in 2000. For those without a calculator nearby, I will make it easy: I have been living in the Boston area for about eighteen years already.

I can tell that it has been a great ride all along with lots of first timers and many awesome experiences: things like driving semi-trucks across America, becoming a regular columnist for a national trade magazine and creating a “To the trade” group with over 650 members from all over the US, Canada and even Australia.

However, there is one thing I am embarrassed to admit: I haven’t been to a baseball game. Well, I had not been to a baseball game until this past week.

It was a perfect weeknight for a game in Boston: mid 70’s, not too much traffic on the way to the stadium, a nice cold beer and obviously a nice victory for the Boston Red Sox. Definitely something I will repeat often now.
