When I was in graduate school near Boston, my employer informed me that I was required to become a Red Sox fan if I wanted to work there. Even though I loved the Seattle Mariners, the Red Sox became my adopted team. One of the things I learned about during the countless Red Sox games I watched with the rest of the staff was The Green Monster—a large wall in Fenway Park—which is also the namesake of Wally, the Green Monster, the Red Sox’s mascot. I like to think that after a hard day of dancing at the games, Wally would enjoy coming home to enjoy this nutritious beast to boost his energy and keep his colors bright!
