Nomar Garciaparra

Today is Normar Garciaparra's 45th birthday.

There was a stretch of 5-7 years, just before Tom Brady led the Patriots to his first Super Bowl, when Nomar was the biggest star in Boston.

It saddens me that his greatness has been largely forgotten.

Happy birthday Nomar!


  1. One of my greatest disappointments was going to Fenway Park and eagerly anticipating hearing - "Now batting, Nomah Gahciaparah" and finding out the PA announcer has absolutely no accent. I still have nightmares.

  2. My biggest Fenway disappointment was in April of 1998 when Mo Vaughn hit a walk-off grand slam against the Mariners. Since the Sox were losing and they stopped serving beer in the 7th we went over to Copperfields and missed the excitement.
