If there is a no smoking policy on the other side, I'm sure that Red will treat it as he treated the no smoking policy on Earth.

Since the team doesn't debut until this coming week, they were right. (edited by redsoxnation on 28.10.06 2141)

The game of basketball will be forever diminished by his passing.
