Professional pumpkin carver Sean Fitzpatrick has carved thousands of pumpkins for clients all over the globe. Perhaps his favorite carving of all, are the ones that bring luck to the home team. You see, Sean has successfully predicted a Red Sox World Series win with his special pumpkins not just once but twice. Fingers crossed he’s about to do it again. Now you might be saying to yourself, is this for real? Skeptics might argue but when it comes to this die-hard Red Sox fan, he’ll tell you it’s the real deal. Sean will only carve his special gourd when he has a strong enough feeling. He will typically will carve it before his team even makes it to the Series. His particular technique of carving allows the pumpkin to last for several weeks, just long enough for the Red Sox to clinch the title, World Series Champions!
In 2007, Sean had such a strong feeling of a win, he not only carved the Red Sox Logo, he also carved several of the players from the 2007 starting lineup! Talk about confidence!
So what gave Sean the urge to carve his latest good luck gourd? let’s just call it gut instinct. This year, he decided to create a special pumpkin that follows with the Red Sox support of the Boston marathon bombing victims.

With only a few more days until the series is decided, we’ll all just have to wait and see if this professional pumpkin carver from Saugus, MA can deliver for a third time. Should the Sox win , that should silence the skeptics, at least until the next time the Sox make the World Series. When will that be? Check with Sean, He’ll let you know, pumpkin style!
