Well here’s a first. The Red Sox game was delayed because a couple of fans sitting up top the Green Monster hung a banner from their front row seats.
The banner and the fans were removed immediately:
This is a first – someone tried to drop a banner off the Green Monster. Security got there pretty quickly. pic.twitter.com/02BLwCMYFZ

As if these Red Sox game weren’t long enough… First off, total rookie move not putting weights at the bottom of the banner. If your going to pay hundreds of dollars for front row seats on the Monster to hang a banner, you better not leave the weights at home. Be smarter. Secondly, if you want to get a message across, take the money you were going to spend on seats and your bail, maybe just create a Facebook page and pay to boost your message.
Update: A report we got from Fenway was that the sign said: “Young Jews ❤️ Red Sox Nation. Resist Israel Occupation” it is ‘Jewish Heritage Night’ tonight at Fenway.
