HEIDI WATNEY, NESN personality, at the "Chipping In for the Red Sox Foundation" event at Fenway Park, Aug. 29, 2011 --
"I was the emcee. I was not supposed to be golfing. I told them I do not want to golf because my game is so terrible. I should not do it in front of people. And yet Jim Rice put me on the spot, handed me a club, and said, 'You're going to hit a stroke.' I don't think there's ever been someone golfing in high heels at home plate at Fenway. I have no idea what club this is. I'm not athletic. I got up there and hit a really terrible shot. I've only golfed with [cousin] Nick maybe once. What am I thinking? Make contact with the ball. I'm thinking I'm going to kill Jim for this. I'm in high heels. Please don't fall on my butt.'"
