Red Sox Radio and Bart Giamatti quote

Continuing the tradition started by the late Ken
Coleman, Joe Castiglione of the Red Sox Radio Network
finished the season's broadcasts tonight by quoting
the late A. Bartlett Giamatti, baseball commissioner: 

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your
heart. The game begins in the spring when everything
else begins again and it blossoms in summer, filling
the afternoons and evenings and then as soon as the
chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the
fall alone. You count on it. Rely on it to buffer the
passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and
high skies alive and then just when the days are all
twilight, when you need it most, it stops." 

For the record, Mr. Giamatti was... 

a Red Sox Fan.
