Documentarian Ken Burns on the Red Sox World Series win:
They were all a scruffy lot, not the “cowboys” and “idiots” of 2004, but worse, a lesser team even David Ortiz admitted, but better in every way. There were a few from the teams of recent years, plus a wayward, bearded set of free agents and cast-offs, a band that seemed like a throwback to the old barnstorming quasi-religious House of David teams that played in the early 20th Century.
