Seriously, seeing a game at Fenway is one of the great experiences in baseball. Yankee Stadium, Fenway & Wrigley are 3 places that all baseball fans need to experience.
Ditto to that. I've had nothing but good experiences at Fenway as a yankee fan. I do wear my Yankee gear there, but I keep pretty quiet and cheer tamely. I find as long as you are not obnoxious, even in the Bronx also, you'll be treated fine within the rivalry. People who say otherwise, typically don't understand how obnoxious they truly are.
Donny, you're right on about that. I must say, though: I was at Game 7 of the 2003 and 2004 ALCSs, and there was good-natured ribbing.... but the opener this year was insane: Fights left and right, my girlfriend was even harrassed for just wearing the hat. It was very, very ugly. It was the only experience at Yankee Stadium where I thought fans went overboard.
To be honest, I was at game 6 and 7 both years and really didn't see any problems except at game 7 last year. Some bitter yankee fans were going overboard and trying to get any Sox fan kicked out so they couldn't see the Sox celebrate the ALCS victory on Yankee soil. I was pretty embarassed to be a yankee fan at that point. As down as I felt, I stayed until they end and even watched a bit of the celebration. I'm a yankee fan, but a baseball fan above all and this was a piece of baseball history I wasn't about to miss.
