I graduated high school in early June of that year, so I have a lot of fun memories from that summer. Unfortunately, the Sox were not good at all that year, but I did go to a bunch of games.

I remember my dad and I both, weeks before that night, said it was going to rain, and we were praying it would. We kept telling everybody all through June and July, and right up to August 8 that it was "Going To Happen". Boy did it ever. As others have mentioned, there was a bad drought that year, so it seemed unlikely. I thought it was hilarious, because all the pomp and circumstance that night, all the idiots who paid inflated ticket prices to be there for that "special" night, and it all got washed out.
