"There was a tremendous turnout at the Johnny Pesky funeral. We had over a 100 people there in terms of ownership, front office, current players, staff, former players. It was a very impressive turnout. I think the people who knew Johnny best came to it. Our players had a chance on Tuesday night [before the game] to participate in the ceremony on the field. They all willingly and enthusiastically participated on that date and then there's going to be another memorial service, so I think it's unnecessary to focus on that issue... we provided buses for the front office and the entire organization and anybody that wanted to use them. Remember our players got in at about 4 in the morning, the night before. The buses left at 11 in the morning. They were designed primarily for the front office people who were not going to drive on their own out there. The buses were pretty full, almost entirely full." -- Larry 'The Lawyer' Lucchino on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan show, with a lame attempt to defend the players who shamefully skipped Johnny Pesky's funeral
