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 yelled. My wife came running. "What?" she said. I grinned. I couldn't help it.

You know, this one. Deadspin posts copies of all the complaints filed with the FCC over both the speech and the FCC commissioner's subsequent affirmation of Big Papi's words. They don't all have addresses attached, but of the ones that did, there were none from Boston (one from Westfield, though).

Specifically, in not finding the nearest dumpster and tossing a certain Globe columnist into it headfirst after said columnist (one guess which one) accused him of taking steroids because, after all, he's old and Dominican (yes, he went there). Not linking to the column because I don't feel like giving him my two cents worth of Web traffic, but it should be easy enough to find for anybody who can log into bostonglobe.com.

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.

Over the decades, news photographer Leslie Jones spent quite a bit of time at Fenway, including on Opening Day.

In 1963, the Red Sox opened the home season while the Prudential tower was still under construction (see it larger):

He might have something like this to say about Truck Day.

Remember when you'd get so frenzied to buy Red Sox tickets you'd open up two or three browsers on two or three different computers and then you'd sit there for hours and finally you'd get in and all that was left were tickets to some Royals game in August?

Fred Somers tweets:

1st yr in a long time that im not waiting in it. #sorrynotsorry

You'd almost think Cody Ross and Will Middlebrooks pissed on home plate at Fenway or something last night. Both were watching the Yankees/Tigers game and both tweeted their amazement/admiration for Raul Ibanez's ninth-inning home run.

And parts of Red Sox Nation lost their collective mind.

Last night, Ross tweeted, simply:

Ibañez!

Middlebrooks was even more effusive:

This is simply insane... #raul

Raul Ibanez is the St Louis Cardinals funneled into one man.

A New Hampshire man who says he was permanently injured when a folding chair in the Fenway bleachers collapsed, sending him plummeting to the concrete, yesterday filed suit against the Red Sox in federal court.

Richard McLaughlin is seeking unspecified damages - but more than $75,000 - for injuries he says he incurred during a game on May 4, 2010 (against the Angels), while sitting in the right-field bleachers, behind the Sox bullpen:

Plaintiff was seated in a metal folding chair provided by Defendants.

Valentine fired, and on Thursday, leaving plenty of time for the "shocking" revelations to be phoned in for the Sunday papers.
