For Boston, for Boston...
Today in the Boston sports world:
Sox at Yankees, 1 pm EST.
"Yesterday's rout was on national television, and Fox reminded viewers that the Yanks hadn't been the victims of a double-digit shutout loss to the Sox at home since losing to Boston, 10-0, in the Polo Grounds on April 23, 1919. Babe Ruth homered for the Red Sox that day.
"Can you stand any more?" Dan Shaughnessy (Boston Globe
“Pedro Martínez was laughing so robustly about Manny Ramirez forgetting how many outs there were in the fourth inning last night that he placed his glove in front of his face to camouflage his smile. Nice try. Everyone realized Martínez was giggling, howling right there on the mound in the middle of Yankee Stadium. When was the last time a Boston player did that?” A Rare Laugher in the Bronx for Boston (New York Times)
Patriots at Bills, 1 pm EST
" 'If there's one thing you take out of it, it's you better be aware every single day', said Brady. 'And even when you are aware, something could still happen. If you start getting a big ego, and thinking you are the be-all and end-all, you're not safe. No one is safe'.
"Not even the quarterback who reached out and grabbed the brass ring on the very first try." A Very Brady Sequel (Boston Globe)
