The Boston Guardian reports John Henry and Friends will seek city permission for 12 concerts this year at the lyric little bandbox - but say they'll keep them from turning the Fenway neighborhood into an aural hell by requiring the concerts to end at 10:30, having on-hand sound engineers who can lower the volume and maybe installing evening sound-deadening curtains. A licensing hearing is scheduled for Dec. 12 at City Hall.

Line for Foo Fighters merch outside Fenway Park

The Foo Fighters are playing Fenway Park tonight and, short of a biblical flood, tomorrow. Jeff Maker has a good seat to watch the line outside the pop-up Foo Fighters store on Brookline Avenue (where the Tilted Kilt and Copperfield's used to be).

Maureen Rogers recounts taking in a trio of Irish hurling matches at Fenway yesterday.

For the first half of the Galway-Dublin match, we tried to figure out the rules by just watching. My brother Rick, who played pretty much every American sport growing up, was able to pick up on some of the rules as we went along, figuring out the difference between a 1 point play, a 3 point play, and a 5 point score, and picking up on the fact that there seemed to be some sort of rule similar to dribbling with respect to how long you could hold the sliotar (the ball) in your hand. But at half time we gave up and went to the Google. It was just too much of a struggle to try to guess what would be called a foul. Apparently, whacking someone in the head with a hurley is perfectly okay.

Update: Hennick has made his Facebook feed private, but the Globe report quotes more extensively from his original account.

Calvin Hennick reports on what happened when he took his son to his first Sox game, the day after Orioles player Adam Jones complained of racist taunting:

At the game, Jones got a small ovation from the crowd when he was introduced (and a much larger one before his first at-bat, when the stands had filled in). But after a young Kenyan woman finished singing the Star-Spangled Banner, the middle-aged white fan next to me leaned over and said, "It was too long, and she niggered it up."
