Where in the world is...

Ever wonder what Fenway would look like if it were displaced somewhere else in the world? Yeah, me neither. But its mid-March and this Red Sox team is boring as ever.
GoogleEarth, prepare to be exploited...

Fenway in Paris - Right where the Eiffel Tower is. The Frenchies gave us the Statue of Liberty, we give them a stadium where they can watch a sport they could care less about.

Fenway in Rome - I've seen both, and let me tell you, between the Coliseum and Fenway, they are both equally as precarious when it comes to wondering if a column will fall on you. Also, it could work the other way... have Roman gladiator battles at Fenway. I'd gladly sit in the 4-inch wide grandstand seats to see Josh Beckett fight a lion.

Fenway in London - Wembley Stadium. You thought soccer riots were crazy when they score a goal? Wait until Daisuke walks 6 batters in a row. Bedlam.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed our brief trip around the world (and straining your eyes trying to decipher the images above). Happy St. Patty's Day. Only 18 more days to go.

"they could care less about"
You mean could NOT care less about. If they could care less then they would care about it, if they couldn't care less then it's at the bottom of the list of things they would care about hence - they couldn't care less.

Also the shortened version of Patrick is Paddy, not Patty. Patty is short for Patricia, whereas the original spelling of Patrick in Irish is Padraic hence - Paddy
