Former Philadelphia Phillie and current right fielder for this year's world champion Boston Red Sox, Shane, made an appearance on Conan on Tuesday to discuss, among other things, what it felt like to win the big one for the city of Boston (Conan's a big Sox fan).
After discussing the whole beard phenomenon, Victorino and Jonny Gomes tell Conan about the parade, which had Duck Boats ceremoniously cart the players around the city. The players revealed that pitcher Jake Peavy bought the Duck Boat he was in and took it to his property in Alabama. Really.
Then, Conan asks Victorino about playing through pain and the Flyin' Hawaiian regales the crowd with stories of getting hit by a car and falling out of a second vehicle as a child.
And, then, a single tear fell from my eye. Also, the Flyers lost.
