Now it is done.  Now the story ends.  And there is
no way to tell it.  The art of fiction is dead.  
Reality has strangled invention.  Only the utterly
impossible, the inexpressibly fantastic, can ever
be plausible again.

The World Champs





I thought of Ted [Williams] and Bobby [Doerr] and Dom [DiMaggio] today.
I thought of Vern [Stephens] and Boo Ferriss. Great players. Great people.
We had great teams. We had great people.
I wish some of them were still here to see this.
They'd be very proud.
