Red Sox broadcasts have been somewhat incomprehensible to me since Dennis Eckersley started doing most of the color commentary for NESN. I wish I had seen Chad Finn’s article, complete with glossary about a year ago.
Case in point (this is a quote from Dennis Eckersley from the aforementioned article):
“The other day something came out that was new, and I don’t know where the [expletive] it came from. I started saying ‘pair of shoes’ about three months ago, and honest to God, I don’t know where it came from.”
As for “pair of shoes,” I actually had to look it up.
