An iconic sign cherished by every Red Sox fan, though probably meaningless to anyone not familiar with Boston or baseball. While there must be hundreds of them scattered around the world, the phrase 'The Citgo Sign' refers to only this one - as a Google search will show! It even has its own page on the Citgo website! But in spite of that, soon after posting it I was thinking of deleting it - until I noticed the photo number!

Ah the Citgo sign, on all my trips to Boston and Fenway Park, sometimes Jake Ivorys that sign jumps at me.
