"I don't imagine it's going to be a comfortable weekend for him ...

... because I know, I've always felt that Boston fans take it personal, and they react as such, and as a visiting player you hate it, as a home team player, you love it. I certainly hope the racial things is overblown. But I remember as a visiting player, I hated this place. ... there's nothing you haven't done in your career that 9the0 Boston fan isn't aware of from a negative standpoint. They'll find it. And they'll rag you about it, if you're worth ragging."-- Curt Schilling speaking on Gary Matthews, Jr. coming to Fenway this weekend on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan show, 8.14.07

Just in Case You Forgot:
Gary's Got Some Harsh Words for the Hub

"They're loud, they're drunk, they're obnoxious. ...

"Yankee fans are passionate about their teams, but they're a little more couth. They have a little more class than Boston fans. At least in New York they appreciate guys who play the game hard and play the game right and they let you know it.

"In Boston, they just smack you for three straight days. They're just dogging you there the whole time. It's a different place." -- 8.14.07 Boston Globe, Red Sox Notebook
