And Then There's Millar...

"The Sox, we like it like this. We roll like this. If you were telling me in February we'd be a half a game (ahead) with 12 to go, I'd say, 'Let's go.' We feed off positive energy... We're fine. One thing we don't do is panic. One thing we don't do is get negative. We believe in each other... pick each other up. That's all you can do." -- 9.19, Kevin Millar, the "#&@! Everybody" T-Shirt Guy
