Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester was recently quoted on ESPN.com as saying: “People are making us out to be a bunch of drunk, fried-chicken eating SOBs, playing video games. You can ask my wife, for the last 10 years I don’t think I’ve played a single video game, and Josh (Beckett) and Lack (John Lackey) are the same way.”
That’s quite a cognitive leap there. He’s essentially saying ‘Hey, I’m may be an irresponsible degenerate who drinks on the job, but at least I’m not a gamer.’
Remember folks, the Red Sox were the last team to integrate, and people from Boston think Flogging Molly is music. I suppose none of this should be particularly shocking.
