In 1969 Bill “Spaceman” Lee found Fenway Park on Jersey Street. They changed the name of the street and the gerbil traded him to Montreal for Stan Papi and a bag of balls. On the back of Fenway Park someone wrote the question, “WHO THE HELL IS STAN PAPI?” and the Red Sox quickly erased it. There were a few of us that kept writing it back on the wall until Zimmer gave up and ran off to New York.
Fenway Park is on Jersey Street again and no one died.
Oh wait. Something did die. No one could find the Jersey Laundry for awesome cheap fluff and fold because Jersey Street was only 15 feet long. R.I.P. Jersey Laundry Center. Too late for you.
Fun fact: Before GPS it was handy to memorize Street names to get around Boston.
The alphabet is whole again.

Tina Greel reports-
He is safe and left the boat last night in skiff.
With the Extra High Tide the Hull could not be seen as it’s underwater. The conditions are pretty bad out there Tina says.
Low tide should reveal the rest of the story. the Ocean Reporter is a Rockport Icon.
