Observations from a Summer at the Ballpark
By Jimmy Dunn, comedian
Hilarious highlights from the Red Sox 2004 season
Foreword by Tom Caron, NESN Red Sox Host
Comedian Jimmy Dunn is a Boston favorite and a national headliner. Sports fans may recognize him as the host of Fan Attic on NESN and from his regular appearances on the Boston Red Sox Pregame Report during the Historic 2004 Season. He has made several appearances on Comedy Central.
From the foreword by Tom Caron:
"When the Red Sox won the World Series, someone said they were waiting for the other eleven signs of the Apocalypse to appear. Here's one more: Jimmy Dunn wrote a book. After all, Jimmy's probably only READ four or five of them in his life. And now he's an author? Miracles really do happen.
I first met Jimmy ten years ago, and have been laughing at him ever since. Or is that with him? Either way, you get the point. The man is funny. His standup is top-notch. You'll never find a more hard-core Red Sox fan, either. Any guy who has "dontblamebuckner" as part of his email address takes it a little too seriously, don't you think?
Jimmy spent the 2004 Red Sox season as the fan-in-the-stands/sports travel consultant for our pre-game show. His pieces were some of the funniest, most off-beat stuff we ever aired. He took on towns like Toronto, San Francisco, and New York and let Red Sox Nation know how to travel--and party--in style on the road to a championship. I'm still waiting for his travel tips on Tampa Bay, however. Some day, his Red Sox Hawaiian shirt will probably sell for more on ebay than a World Series ring...Why read this book? Because it's funny."
