Who was most out-of-place at Fenway last night?

Apr 5, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

Dr. Dre.jpgHere’s a question for you:  Which of the following people who participated in last night’s festivities seemed the most awkward and out-of-place?

  • Pedro Martinez, throwing the first pitch out as if he were all retired and everything, which frankly, is something for which I’m not ready;
  • Chan Ho-Park;
  • Dr. Dre, who should not, under any circumstances, be seen wearing the jersey of an east coast team.

Between all that and just how sloppy the game itself was I just can’t express how discombobulating last night was for me. I’m going to pretend that it was merely an extension of spring training and that the real Opening Day is today.  Greinke vs. Verlander!  Santana vs. Johnson! Oswalt vs. Lincecum!  Far less ridiculousness, I’m sure.

    Yankees lost because of bad sining and Park. Oh, well.
    You moderated a great chat last night, Craig, let’s do two.

    “Yankees lost because of bad sining”
    .
    I don’t know. The Yankees can sin with the best of them.

    Can I vote for Stephen Tyler’s random girlfriend who harmonized for the last chorus of “God Bless America,” but otherwise just stood there smiling while we all wondered if she was his nurse or something?

    I know they’re not East Coast, but come on Craig–a White Sox hat was Dre’s signature look back in the day.

    I’m with you. At least with the other people, I knew who they were.

    The one guy who most clearly and obviously did not belong in a major league ballpark last night was Chan Ho Park.

    I believe that was Tyler’s daughter, Chelsea Tallarico.

    Trust me, GBA has been used in plenty of bad movies. Not sure about strip clubs though – nobody ever wanted to see me naked.

    Jimenez VS Gallardo !!!!!
    (sorry 2 of my favorite young pitchers going at it..had to throw it in)

    Most out of place last night was the “freekin red carpet.” Not classy at all.
