On the off chance you missed it, Steve Horgan is the cop captured exulting over David Ortiz's home run, even as Torii Hunter was flipping backwards into the bullpen in front of him.

Naturally, this became a meme in roughly 5 seconds and now it's everywhere - although there seems to be some disagreement on whether Horganing requires somebody to be up-ended in front of... Read more

Before that epic grand slam, you may recall, Alex Avila hit a home run, a woman caught the ball and then some Sox superfan ripped it out of her hands and threw it back on the field. Yahoo Sports reports he spent a good part of the night being a racist jerk.

How many teams have won two non-doubleheader games in one day on walkoffs?

Matthew Kory exclaims:

I turned the game off after Dempster gave up the grand slam. It was over. The Sox were done for the night and so was I. Except, as it turned out, neither of us were. I called up the score on my phone hours later. "They WON!" I

Later, Neil Diamond took the field to lead the singing of "Sweet Caroline."

Don't even think of complaining to the FCC. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski tweeted after the game:

David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today's Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston.
