Jackpot!


Red Sox Nation has never been a fan of 2nd place, but in this case (and this case only) it's not so bad. Especially considering Yankee Stadium doesn't even get a sniff at the board.

You may remember a few months ago that Monopoly was designing yet another version of it's property trading game called "The Here and Now Edition." Americans were asked to vote for favorite landmarks all over the country, and the top votes would make it on the board. Fenway park was of course a big favorite, and has made it in the traditional "Park Place" spot in this version. Other landmarks that made it to the board are Waikiki Beach in Hawaii, The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Disneyworld in Orlando, and The White House in DC. The only landmark to beat out Fenway was Times Square in NYC.
