One of the more interesting quotes of this past weekend was Joe Maddon's response to a question that would the Rays follow the Red Sox lead and ban beer in the clubhouse. In response, Joe replied:
Needless to say, that got the Boston fans riled up. Some, unsurprisingly, sinking pretty low in their comments.
This is my personal favorite, not because it's right, but because of the sheer arrogance and ignorance it shows:
We're talking about a team nicknamed for sunshine that plays in a dome."
Those are just three examples. Some are more entertaining. Personally, I loved the comment, I ended up retweeting it. I don't see what the big fuss is about, they're not the Red Sox, they are the Rays. And as long as the players act responsibly, I don't see the need to ban it either. Right on, Joe.
