The Book Elves are nothing if not rabid baseball fans, and this year to
celebrate Opening Day they decided to build a miniature replica of Fenway
Park in the field out behind the Cataloging Cave. The whole thing went
surprisingly smoothly for a project of this size (or indeed, for any
project involving the Book Elves), with a minimum of explosions, fires,
hospitalizations or court orders. By Opening Day everything was ready for
a party, and they brought in grills and hot dogs and coleslaw and chips
and kegs of beer –and then it started to snow. And the grill went out, and
the hot dog buns got soggy, and the coleslaw froze... and then Sox pitcher
Jon Lester gave up three home runs in five innings. By game’s end the Book
Elves had retired to the Cataloging Cave with the chips and beer, and
their Fenway Park replica was sitting under three inches of new snow.

And then the cops showed up...

But before they admitted to the court that they built their amazing
replica of Fenway’s left field wall (the Green Monster) by “liberating”
the backboards from the town’s tennis courts, the Book Elves finished our
latest catalog-
