Baseball quote of the day

"A lot of people were saying , 'Yeah, yeah, we tied it, we tied it!' And then they said, 'Oh, no, what did you do? We could have gone home!'"
-- Wade Boggs, referring his part in prolonging a 33-inning game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings in 1981. Rochester had gone up 2-1 in the 21st, but Boggs hit a single to tie the game.

The above quote was found while looking for info on yesterday's Pawsox game, which my wife, some friends and I had been hoping to see. Unfortunately, no one told the schedule-makers that forty days and nights of rain had already been planned.
