A pregame interview with Terry Francona
Red Sox manager meets the media prior to Game 7 of the ALCS
I asked this to Joe just a few minutes ago. This is your job and you take it seriously, but is there a fan in you that can step back and say, this is cool, this is Game 7? Or is the job at hand just too important to do that?TERRY FRANCONA: What did Joe say (laughter)? You don't want to know what he said. TERRY FRANCONA: I enjoy the heck out of it. I don't think I have the ability, I hope, to stand back and look at it like a fan. But there's a lot of things that go through you during the day. There's some anxiety, you get nervous, you get excited. But I love it. I don't know that you can sit and it's not all like giggles, but it's thoroughly enjoyable, yeah.
