Something Interesting Will Happen in Fenway This Month

And it's not baseball.

The stars of director Ben Affleck's new shot-in-Boston heist drama will attend the Sept. 14 screening at Fenway Park. Making official something we've already reported, Warner Bros. yesterday announced that "The Town'' will premiere at the ballpark, and the all-star cast, including Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, and Chris Cooper, will join Affleck for the special event in the outfield.

Warner Bros is probably going to erect a yooge movie screen in centerfield, on the hallowed ground where Red Sox legend Ryan Kalish has trod this season, and screen the film in front of a small crowd of Hollywood folk and local union guys. Coincidentally on the same night in New York, Jay-Z and Eminem will be blowing stuff up in their sold-out concert at Yankee Stadium. Advantage: rapping people.

Really though, it's pretty neat that they're debuting the film in Fenway since part of The Town was actually filmed there. Wait a minute...a heist drama in a baseball park? Ben Affleck stole our gig!

Or the could just hang a huge white sheet on the green monster.

"Or the could just hang a huge white sheet on the green monster."

LEAVE YOUR MOM'S UNDIES OUTTA THIS...

Is totally what I thought Rob would come back with.

Would you rather:
A) Watch Ben Afflak movie at Fenway?
B) Attend Jay Z/Eminem concert at Yankee Stadium?
C) Jab a sharp stick in your eye at any other American League ballpark?

D) read comments by kwsn

Or you could have gone with. "What would all the Bostonians use for their Klan meetings?"

Bostonians may not like black people, but Klansman also tend to hate Papists too. So I'm going to go ahead and say that there are very few Klansman in Boston.

@Freetzy
Yes you are right.
