Red Sox Winter Weekend in Review
By Drew Peabody
The Red Sox Winter Weekend had been on my radar since it was first announced in early December and it was very exciting to think about all the players that would be there, past and present. The list of events even increased my excitement. Close to 40 players were slated to attend. The weather forecast dropped like a ton of bricks on my plans. It was continually shifting, two feet of snow, then down to a few inches. My nearly three hour trip almost did not happen, but the snow wasn’t coming until Saturday, so I was going even if it was alone. The news came on Friday that newly acquired mega-free agent
was slated to attend as well. My friend drove as he is a Foxwoods veteran, a semi-pro poker player who had been there dozens of times. Once we discovered we were in the proper place, lunch plans were made and event passes were acquired.
This article is intended to serve both as a review of the event and the venue and possibly a guide for those who might be going next year. Before these events get closer to next year’s event rather than this year’s, let’s take a look at the festivities.
