Stars and Stripes Forever, just not This Year …..

I’m trying to record the Boston Pops Annual 4th of July Spectacular today, only to find out they won’t be televising it this year. Every time they hit that big crescendo and the gigantic flag unfurls to the wild applause of the audience, my emotions take over. It gets me every time.

So this is my contribution to those who have made this a tradition in their family for years but won’t be able to watch it today. It’s one of the items left on my bucket list ~ to watch a live Boston Red Sox and SF Giants day game on the 4th of July followed by a trip to the Boston Pops “live” 4th of July Spectacular, if it’s still around I mean.  I wonder who makes the decision to cancel such a wonderful televised event and interfere with family traditions? 

Oh well, I’ll try again next year.  Happy 4th of July everyone!

  1. There’s always the SF Symphony at Shoreline. I know. It’s not the same and it’s kinda far from the ballpark (where our team isn’t playing today), but they do play Stars & Stripes and it’s a fun time on the lawn!

  2. Thanks Stacey. I’ll remember that, unless the Giants are playing the Red Sox on the 4th of July next year, in which case it will have to be Boston!
