Fenway shows that some ideas are Frozen in time

Oh, man, things are really going downhill fast at what is now the third staging of Frozen Fenway. All the fun began Saturday at the snow-covered lyric little bandbox, where the 17-day show has evolved into more than just a lonely hockey rink in the outfield.

This year, for the first time in the century-plus history of all things sun ‘n’ slope at the Fens, a big ol’ sledding hill has been constructed in front of the Green Monster. For $25, they’ll hand you an innertube, point you up a 20-foot flight of stairs, and for an hour you can repeatedly dash down a snowy track of some 75 feet, straight in the direction of the Red Sox bullpen.
