Ruby Tuesday: Those Damn Yankees Slept Here
Time for another RUBY TUESDAY. Make sure to stop by and check out all the others.
In honor of Mary’s visit to Boston this past weekend I pulled out a photo I took the last time I was there.
It’s the facade of the Copley Square Hotel. I like the bits of red showing through the trees. I discovered all sorts of new angles – many made necessary by being on a lurching bus stuck in mid-day Boston traffic.
I remember this hotel vividly because the tour guide told us the Yankees stay there when in town and of course everyone on the bus booed which made me laugh out loud. All eyes turned to me and I said “Oh give me a break, I was born in Brooklyn and I live in NJ. Do you really think a little booing can upset me?”
Later I was drinking with a few of the folks from the bus and received the ultimate Bostonian compliment. It’s probably an old Irish blessing as well. One of the guys told me – “I like you. You’re the only Yankees fan I don’t want to kill”.
See how easy it is to get along! Happy Ruby Tuesday.
