As noted before, on April 20th, 1912, the Red Sox beat New York 7-6 in the first game ever played at Fenway Park. Not many people other than the fans that were there heard about it because the front page was still covered with stories about the sinking of the Titanic. One hundred years later people are still talking about it and the movie soon to be re-released in 3D will again be grossing huge sums. When asked what they would do if they were playing violin on deck when the Titanic struck the fateful iceberg, 15 percent would play to the bitter end.
Ten percent would play one short song and a combined 13 percent would play until they felt water. Fifty-five percent would have called in sick and waltzed to nearest lifeboat.
