also, you know the reason nobody's interviewed beckett yet is that his mouth can't be trusted with the live feed

Let the record show that when the Red Sox clinched the American League East, Jonathan Papelbon wasn't wearing any pants.

Why am I not surprised? I bet Dougie put him up to that.

Seriously, the first shot you saw in the clubhouse was Papelbon in a jockstrap. Legendary.

Haha, I caught that, too! Love it. :)

I was convinced that Beckett was otherwise occupied with a sorority girl or twelve under the bleachers.

I'll cut him some slack this time.

Katie and I were on the phone the whole time and caught various glimpses of him. The best was when he was standing by and smiling when Kathryn Tappen interviewed Mikey Lowell. I maintain, had they gotten Beckett in front of a microphone, NESN would still be paying back the FCC in 2017.

When the 2007 season DVD comes out, there seriously has to be a chapter titled "Papelbon: No-Pants Glory."

I'm very confused about the tattoos, too.

Beckett was positively LOOMING over Katherine during that Lowell interview- with that sly halfgrin on his face, daring her to interview him live on the air.

And it is absolutely fitting that the first image of the Red Sox as AL East Champions is Papelbon jumping off of a cooler wearing a jockstrap with his ass cheeks hanging out. It just seems RIGHT somehow.

Somewhere, there's a picture of Papelbon being made to run laps in his underwear from when he was a rookie, and you can see the tacky tribal-esque tattoos there as well? There's also a positively timberlakian cross in the middle of his back, I think.

Also, it's TOTALLY fitting. Especially for everyone who says this team doesn't have as much character as the 2004 team. Papelbon has as much character as 6 Kevin Millars.

and, i'd imagine, is approximately 85 times more pleasant to look at in a jockstrap.

Just 85? I'm going for a couple more decimal places than that.

If you want a replay of his no pants debut: http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/gallery/09_28_07_clinch?pg=5 until NESN discovers the legs lead to his backside. Enjoy! Go Sox (hi Caitlin!)
