"I said, 'We're so spoiled.' It's amazing. It's really amazing the games we play, and how much fun it's been. When we're all old and our children are all grown up, we'll sit around and meet up and talk about games like the game the other day. It's a wild ride, and we're very spoiled." -- 10.18.08, Kevin Youkilis
