[about wandering the streets of Newton, MA after the Red Sox lost Game 6 of the 1986 World Series] Shaun Kelly:
...And I ran across an old guy walking his dog and he looked at me with my Red Sox hat tilted aimlessly on my head and he said, "Son, this is the dahhkest day in this town since Jack Kennedy was schaught."
[explaining Bucky Dent's unofficial middle name in New England] Denis Leary: Bucky Fuckin' Dent. [On being black and going to Fenway Park] Howard Bryant: My father used to tell me - why go to Fenway and get myself beaten up? Cheri Griffin: [describing Red Sox fans] P.W.N.C.C.'ers: provincial, whining, narcissistic, chronic complainers. Paul Francis Sullivan: If the Red Sox win the World Series, first of all the death toll in New England will be catastrophic. There are so many old people who say "I can't die until they win the World Series!" They're all going to die. It's going to be worse than the black plague. Lenny Clarke: [on Bucky Dent's name] It sounds like a curse. "Ya Bucky Dent bastard!"
