It's the substance of a thousand uses! Besides keeping pitcher's necks warm on cold nights, here are some other things you can use it for:
As today's game approached, a teacher at the kidlet's school opened a window so the kids could better hear the flyover at nearby Fenway Parik.
Only they didn't hear anything - because unlike in years past, this year's flyover consisted of a Coast Guard helicopter, captured here by Brian D'Amico.

The Red Sox go before the Boston Licensing Board this week for permission to add cans to their repertoire of beer options at the lyric little bandbox this season.
You can date a Red Sox player, or you can stand on the sidelines during games, but not both.
Bryan Joiner makes the case that it's time we stop honoring an unrepentant racist.
Remy, of course, you know about. The Globe reports sideliner Dell, though, won't be talking over on-field action anymore. NESN, of course, won't say if that's because her boyfriend is Will Middlebrooks.
Red Sox officials say they want to add three more places to buy hard liquor, add sales of beer in bottles and extend alcohol sales on Yawkey Way as a way to reduce crowding in the stadium during Red Sox games and other events at Fenway Park.
At a hearing before the Boston Licensing Board this morning, Dennis Quilty, the team's licensing attorney, and Lawrence Cancro, the team's senior vice president of Fenway affairs, said Fenway's concourse was built in simpler times and cannot really handle the large flows of people who concentrate there in search of refreshments before games and events and in between innings.
The Red Sox want to expand the number of stands inside Fenway Park that can serve up hard liquor - and to extend beer sales at games that run long.
The team is scheduled to appear before the Boston Licensing Board on Wednesday to seek several amendments in its current liquor license for Fenway and Yawkey Way.
The Sox want to increase the number of concession stands that can sell mixed drinks with no more than an ounce of actual liquor in them from the five approved in 2011 to eight - including one on Yawkey Way.

Jose Masso wrote a letter to the Globe after reading the eight essays and a poem about the Sox, none by Latinos about a team basically led by a Latino:
This is our “effing city too” and maybe, just maybe, under the new ownership of the Globe it will be reflected every time we celebrate the positive.
They're hoping people who know these guys will call up Trooper Brian Simpkins of the Boston Barracks at 617-727-6780.
UPDATE: Drunken/shirtless Napoli timeline - note that one of the last shirts he wore was a Marty Walsh tee.
Mark Garfinkel has come up with an update for Charlie on the MTA:
Well, let me tell you of the story of a man named Napoli
On a proud and memorable day.
He put ten cents in his pocket, kissed fans in a skirt, went barhoppin' without a shirt.
What a great day for a parade.
From Fenway Park to the banks of the Charles, Bostonians lined up early for a chance to see the 2013 World Champion Boston Red Sox - and doesn't that sound good to hear?
When the procession of Duck Boats got to the Boston Marathon finish line in Copley Square, it stopped. Jonny Gomes put the World Series trophy and a Boston 617 Strong jersey on the finish line. Then the players and fans listened and joined in a chorus of "God Bless America."
Glenn Cabo shows more of the scene:

Boston's better than that. Especially after this year, no one who truly loves the city of Boston should ever engage in willful wanton destruction. Let's band together and help Chad pay for what these idiots did. He shouldn't have to.
