Fenway Park As The O.K. Corral

This coming weekend, Boston's venerable Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912, will serve as a latter day O.K. Corral.

In 1881, at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Virgil and Morgan Earp engaged in a legendary gunfight with the Clantons and McClaurys. Folks around these parts are gearing up for some mean hombres who will be traveling up from the Bronx. Those cowboys in pinstripes have been none too happy since a new Sheriff rode into town and took over - beginning in Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS. They are coming to Beantown looking to settle some scores. "A-Rod," "Giambi," "Jeter," "The Big Unit," "Rivera" - whose names will be written on the new tombstones that will be installed at the end of the weekend at the Boothill Cemetery? Stay tuned. The bullets will start flying Friday at 7:05.

Go Sox!
