A Sunday in paradise

Four years ago, everybody talked that Fenway needed to be replaced. Now, it's nothing less than a baseball palace.

Saturday afternoon, I saw Drew Barrymore. No, really. I was in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, where the Farrelly Brothers (or maybe it was just one of them) were shooting a scene in their next movie, a (very) loose adaptation of Nick Hornby's brilliant book, "Fever Pitch."

Anyway, a few of us were standing across the street from where the technicians were setting up the lights and the screens, and finally both Drew Barrymore and co-star Jimmy Fallon replaced their stand-ins. At this point, some production flunky walked over to us, and told us we had to move well down the street because of "reflective issues."
