Two Quotes

Taken from Sports Illustrated, here are two items regarding the Red Sox:

1) After the BoSox beat the Yankees (Suck) in game seven, the fans were on the streets outside Fenway celebrating. The police were there and were armed with FN303 guns, which fire pepper pellets designed to be nonlethal. On egun was fired into a crowd of revelers - from which a bottle had been thrown at a police officer - and the pellet struck the eye of 21-year-old Victoria Snelgrove, killing her. Following Boston wins in games one and two of the World Series, the city was far more subdued. Here is what BoSox rightfielder Trot Nixon said: "I'd give back game seven to have her back."

2) In game one of the World Series, the BoSox and Cards combined for 42 runners and 5 errors, including one by Boston leftfielder Manny Ramirez when he stumbled awkwardly (and hilariously!) on an unnecessary attempt at a diving catch, allowing the Cards to tie the game at nine in the eighth. When he returned to the dugout, Manny deadpanned to teammate Dave Roberts, "Snipers got me."
