Helicopter over Fenway

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.

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.

In the Globe today, Kevin Paul Dupont traces the history of the Redskins to Boston, including why the team got its name (nothing spectacular, has to do with a breakup with the ownership team of the Braves) and how it hired a fake Indian as its first coach.

The Boston Redskins vs. the New York Giants at Fenway Park, 1933:
