Winner, winner, chicken dinner. With the Red Sox headed to the World Series, the bearded ones’ victory means more than just fun and ALCS memorabilia for everyone. Major League moolah. Boston and the region could see as much as $40 million if the series goes to seven games. PAGE 02

World Series means money and excitement for Boston Economic boost. The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce said each World Series home game means about $10 million for the region. The line of about 100 people outside the Modell’s in Medford early yesterday morning says two things about the next two weeks in Boston: excitement among the citizens of Red Sox Nation and a boost to the local economy. Despite a game that finished after midnight and celebrations that ended in the wee hours of the morning, tired but smiling Boston Red Sox fans lined up by the dozens to be some of the first to get their hands on championship gear. Seeing the line, Spencer Hawkes, a district manger, decided to open up about 45 minutes early. “They went right for the locker room T-shirts and hats that the players were wearing [Saturday] night. That seems to be the biggest seller right now,” he said. The Red Sox beat the Detroit Tigers in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series in a game that finished just after midnight yesterday. Modell’s opened up right after the game ended, closed for a few hours and then re-opened just after 8 a.m. Fans rifled through a special display setup in the store that included blue and red shirts, hats, shot glasses and stickers.

Boston police said they received one report of an arrest during the celebration after the Red

Celtic citation.

Game 1 is Wednesday night. Aaron Howell, of Marblehead, was mulling over shirt sizes yesterday and his prediction for the World Series. “I hope they smoke ‘em,” he said. “It’s going to be a tough one.” The region is expected to experience an economic boost not just from merchandise sales, but also from people coming in for the World Series who use hotels and taxis and eat at bars and restaurants. “All of this adds up in a very positive way for the local economy,” said Charles Rudnick, a spokesman for the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber projects that each World Series home game will generate between $9 million and $10 million in income for the city and region. That means, if the World Series is forced to go to a Game 7, the region could see as much as $40 million in additional income. “We’re never going to root for the Red Sox to lose; however, if they do go into Game 6 and 7, there’s a silver lining,” Rudnick said. “That’s another terrific injection into the local economy.”

Emergency situation. Ambulance hits girl, 12, on Jamaica Plain street A girl was rushed to a hospital after she was hit by an ambulance while crossing a street in Jamaica Plain this weekend. The 12-year-old girl had just stepped out of her mother’s car at about noon Saturday and was crossing near 3704 Washington St. when the Boston EMS ambulance hit her, according to police. The girl’s mother said she had pulled over to let her out of the car and that her daughter was in the street when the ambulance drove by. Police said that officers on scene saw that there was no crosswalk where the girl was walking in the street. The ambulance passenger EMT said they were on their way to an emergency call with the lights and sirens on when the girl ran out in front of the ambulance, police said.
Driver to hospital Police said they have not issued a citation. •
The driver of the ambulance was also taken to a hospital for stress-related injuries.
A message sent to a Boston EMS spokesman was not returned by press time.
Pushing 50, Head of the Charles is still making a splash The driver tried to avoid the girl by swerving sharply to the right causing the ambulance to also collide with the parked car. After being treated at the scene, the girl was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. The girl’s mother told the Herald that her daughter was on her way to dance class when the incident happened.
The Head of the Charles Regatta wrapped up yesterday afternoon with thousands of onlookers watching from the banks of the Charles River. In its 49th year, the historic event is the world’s largest two-day regatta, attracting more than 9,000 rowers and 400,000 spectators. / NICOLAUS CZARNECKI, METRO
Suﬀolk Downs cuts ties with Caesars Suffolk Downs has asked Caesars Entertainment to withdraw as a managing part-

US economy bruised by ﬁscal ﬁght
Despite debt drama, US still outshining Europe
The U.S. economy has been hurt by a recent budget standoff in Washington and it is important that the nation does not go through another around of brinkmanship, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said yesterday. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, Lew said he was confident the economy, which he described as resilient, would recover from the 16-day partial shutdown of the federal government. He described events leading to the shutdown as a political crisis rather than an economic one. REUTERS
If Wall Street’s record high is a signpost, the U.S. economy has every chance of pulling further ahead of a stuttering Europe despite new battles to come in Washington over the government’s budget and debt ceiling. “There’s probably more confidence now that next time around there won’t be this kind of brinkmanship, that there won’t be another shutdown and that there certainly won’t be a default,” said Ira Kalish, chief global economist for Deloitte, the professional services organization. REUTERS
“We know that from the shutdown, there was a loss of economic activity.” Lew
The S&P 500 closed on Friday at an all-time peak of 1,744.50.
President focused on fixing glitches in health care rollout Opponents. Many Republicans were criticizing the program long before its rocky launch. President Barack Obama is frustrated by the problems with the rollout of his signature health care reform and the administration intends to fix them. Fresh from the U.S. budget battles, Obama today will turn his attention to convincing Americans that the health care program can be fixed, despite the initial problems. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press” yesterday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said the administration was determined to repair the technical glitches in the online insurance exchanges that are a central part of “Obamacare,” which launched on Oct. 1.

Administration oﬃcials blame the problems partly on an unexpectedly high volume of visitors in its ﬁrst 10 days. / METRO PHOTO ILLUSTRATION Visitors
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, there have been more than 19 million visits to the website since its launch.
“I think that there’s no one more frustrated than the president at the difficulty in the website,” Lew said. He said the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services “has got plans to fix this and it has to fix this. It has to be done right.” Obama told aides in a recent Oval Office meeting that the administration had to take re-
sponsibility for the fact that the website was not ready on time. He is expected to address that in his remarks today. Administration officials are expected to travel the country in the coming weeks to encourage people to sign up on the exchanges, targeting areas where there are high percentages of uninsured, according to one official. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is expected to provide private health coverage to an estimated 7 million uninsured Americans through the new online marketplaces that opened for enrollment in all 50 states on Oct. 1. But the website, HealthCare.gov, the administration’s online portal for consumers in 36 states, was hobbled by technical problems — including error messages, garbled text and delays loading pages. “We are committed to doing better,” the department said in a blog post yesterday.

Capacity. Big data heralds the return of the Cray supercomputer The pioneer of supercomputers in the 1970s stood on the brink of obscurity 20 years ago but is now surging back to prominence. Its shares have almost doubled over the past 12 months. The explosion of data — measuring weather, traffic, health and countless other areas — coupled with a desire to tease meaning out of it,
demands greater computing power than is accessible via standard machines. “The assumption was that supercomputers were cliche five years ago. People thought, ‘I can run my simulation on my laptop,’” said Barry Bolding, a Cray vice president, at the company’s Seattle headquarters last week. REUTERS

“Twitter is a great service; it’s still got growth in front of it. But in my opinion, I would say the opportunities are less than that of Facebook, and it has to be valued appropriately.” Dan Niles Chief investment oﬃcer of tech-focused hedge fund ﬁrm AlphaOne Capital Partners
Retired schoolteacher Donald Hovasse signed up for Twitter about a year ago at the urging of his daughter. He lost interest after trying the service a few times and finding lots of celebrities but few of his friends using the online social network. “I didn’t really get the point of it at all,” said the Las Vegas resident. “Most of them were people I wasn’t interested in hearing what they had to say anyway.” He said, however, that he does check Facebook every day to see what his friends are up to. Hovasse’s experience highlights a risk for investors as Twitter Inc. marches toward this year’s most anticipated initial public offering in the United States, expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange in mid-November. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, 36 percent of 1,067 people who have joined Twitter say they do not use it, and 7 percent say they have shut their account. The online survey, conducted Oct. 11 to
18, has a credibility interval, a measure of its accuracy, of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. In comparison, only 7 percent of 2,449 Facebook members report not using the online social network, and 5 percent say they have shut down their account. The results have a credibility interval of 2.3 percent. People who have given up on Twitter cite a variety of reasons, from lack of friends on the service to difficulty understanding how to use it. Convincing ordinary people to think of Twitter as an indispensable part of their lives is key to the company’s ability to generate a profit. REUTERS Users
Twitter reported it had 232 million “active” users — people who access the service at least once a month — at the end of September.
Twitter’s revenue in the third quarter more than doubled from the year before to $168.6 million, while its net loss tripled to $64.6 million.

Heâ€™s not retiring Interview. Jackie Chan talks directing â€œChinese Zodiacâ€? and doing action in his 60s. Donâ€™t ask Jackie Chan why his latest film, â€œChinese Zodiac,â€? is the first heâ€™s directed in a long time. As far as Chan is concerned, he should get credit for directing every movie in which heâ€™s appeared, both in the U.S. and China, regardless of what the credits say. â€œActually, Iâ€™m nonstop directing. Weâ€™re talking about â€˜Rush Hour,â€™ â€˜Shanghai Noon,â€™ â€˜Shanghai Knightsâ€™ â€” all the movieâ€™s Iâ€™ve made, on the set Iâ€™m almost half-director,â€? Chan says. â€œThey have to listen to me.â€? Chan insists this is by necessity given his experience with coordinating elaborate action sequences â€” and because heâ€™s the guy who has to do all the ridiculous stunts. But it isnâ€™t always an easy collaboration. â€œSome directors just pretend,â€? he says. â€œIâ€™ve had so many bad experiences â€” I try to help, and somehow they know â€˜Entertainment Tonightâ€™ is on the set filming us. Most of the time Iâ€™m directing, but then suddenly one day I realize, â€˜Oh, you want to show off for â€˜Entertainment Tonight.â€™ OK.â€™ Why do you have to have such a big ego? We just

want to make a good movie.â€? That might explain why Chan is back in the directorâ€™s chair for real with â€œChinese Zodiac,â€? a film many mistakenly believe will be Chanâ€™s final bow as an action star. â€œIn Cannes I announced that this is my last big action movie. So many people forgot the â€˜big,â€™â€? he says, explaining that he has
no plans to retire from acting. â€œIâ€™m not young anymore. Seven more months and Iâ€™m going to be 60, okay? I did this one because I wanted to show that I could still do a big action movie. But when I was doing this one, it was really, really painful, not like it used to be. Me, I want to do it, but my body tells me to stop. How
long can I keep doing this?â€? So what does he have in mind if heâ€™s not going to be jumping off buildings anymore? â€œIn Hollywood itâ€™s difficult to find a good script for myself,â€? he admits. â€œThese last couple of days I sit down and hear, â€˜The idea is you and Chris Tucker, you know?â€™ Then we meet another screenwriter: â€˜A good idea, you and Owen Wilson.â€™ Then I go to the studio, Warner Bros., and see two writers: â€˜You and Chris Tucker.â€™ â€˜Can I do something like â€˜Kramer vs. Kramer?â€™ You know, slow motion on the beach, singing the song, â€˜The Sound of Music,â€™ something! Here in Hollywood, everybody associates me with action, but I go back to my home in China and I can do whatever I want to do.â€?

More from Dr. Livingston
Who would be an example of a courageous person? It happened recently in the subway system in New York — somebody fell onto the tracks, and another bystander jumped on top of them and held them down while the train went over them. That certainly is an example of courage. Courage requires, first of all, that one is willing to take a risk. Second of all, that you have a choice about that. And third, the risk has to be on behalf of someone else. Conversely, that pilot who landed the airplane on the Hudson was demonstrating good piloting skills, but I didn’t see any courage involved, because he was on the airplane! Fortunately for those 85 people on the airplane, he made a good landing.

THREE TOOLS TO HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS Rather than stress over challenging relationships with friends, family and lovers, we can shift our perspective. Intimate connections of all kinds offer us a glimpse into our darker sides. Say you feel let down by others — there’s a strong chance you’re letting yourself down in some way. Or if you feel judged by people, you probably have some deeprooted judgment on yourself. When we see our relationships as opportunities for personal growth, we can begin to accept the tough times. Navigating tumultuous relationships can be tough without a road map. Here are three powerful tools to help.
Take care of your side of the street If you’re in a difficult relationship, the first step to working
Are things not so smooth with mom these days? Look inward to see how you may have contributed to the conflict. / NPINE
on it is to see your part in the chaos. Make a list of all the ways you’ve participated in the drama. Be specific and honest. Once you’ve clarified your part, it’s very helpful to share it with the other person. This step is not an exercise in mak-
ing yourself a punching bag. Rather, it’s an opportunity to make amends.
Talk it out Nothing is more powerful than speaking your truth.
Zen in the City
GABRIELLE BERNSTEIN WWW.GABBYB.TV Gabrielle Bernstein is the author of “Spirit Junkie.”
This tool was taught to me by my friend Elena Brower, a world-renowned coach and yoga teacher. This exercise is designed to give each party the opportunity to say how they feel without interruption. Here’s how it works: Each person has three minutes to speak without interruption. You can say everything that is on your mind regardless of how bad it may sound. The other person cannot interrupt. When the three minutes are up the other person says, “You have been heard.” Then that person gets a chance to speak. Once the second person is finished, the partner responds, “You have been heard.” So often in conversations we interrupt each other to “correct” the other person’s story or defend ourselves. This exercise offers each person the opportunity to share his or her side of the story
and fully own it. Most importantly, it gives each person the chance to be heard.
Release The only way to move forward happily in a relationship is to release the past. This release comes through forgiveness. This doesn’t mean you’re cutting the person out of your life; it means you release the energetic grip the relationship has had on you. To do this you can begin each day with the mantra, “I forgive you and I release you.” Whenever you are in a fight or stuck in an old pattern of negativity, repeat the mantra. Be willing to open up to the root causes of the issues at hand so that they can be mended. Take responsibility for your happiness and actively choose to enjoy your relationships today.
On fear: Figuring it out and facing it down will overcome anxiety in a way that you can tolerate. Avoidance causes the fears and the anxiety to increase.
Psychiatrist Dr. Gordon Livingston is prescribing a heavy dose of courage, not pills, to combat a debilitating syndrome: fear. In “The Thing You Think You Cannot Do,” now available in paperback, Dr. Livingston explains to us why we must depend on courage to survive. You aim to invoke virtues rather than prescribe medicine. How do you implement that? Although I do use medication for anxiety and depression, I think that we need to think about courage. The key — and that’s why the book is titled “The Thing You Think You Cannot Do” — is to confront our fears. The cardinal rule of anxiety is that when we confront the things that make us anxious, they gradually decrease. Many people, for example, have so-called phobias: things that they can’t do. But once those fears are confronted, systematically, they diminish. But if we react by avoidance, then our fears get worse. If we refuse to get on an airplane,
Diving right into fear might not be for you, but smaller steps can help. EYECANDY IMAGES RF
What’s an easy, everyday tip for facing your fears? Have a sense of humor. The ability to laugh in the face of fear is another form of courage that needs to be cultivated. People who react out of fear don’t make good decisions.
then our lives are constricted. So are we supposed to just dive right in? Or are there baby steps to decreasing fear? Systematic desensitization is the way that we overcome those kinds of fears. If it’s getting on an airplane, then one day we’ll go the airport, and the next day we’ll go to the boarding area. There are ways in which you can do this that
How did your war experience in Vietnam influence your view of fear? That’s an example of a hazardous environment in which practically all normal people are apprehensive. You ask yourself, “What constitutes courage in that environment? What allows people to behave in courageous ways?” Part of it is training — that’s one of the things that the military emphasizes — but it’s hard to train a person to be willing to die for an idea. I think that what happens in the combat situation is people develop a kind of unit cohesion in which a sort of love develops among the participants, and it’s important not to let down these people who are dependent on you. You’re saying risk-taking is especially important. No one can live a risk-free life; we’re all subject to loss,
and we’re all subject to loss of control, to the deaths of those we love. We’re all faced with our own demise. Just to get up each morning and try to live as fully as we can requires courage. Courage can only be taught by example. You can’t lecture somebody into being courageous. ... I think we need to cultivate examples of people among us who are living full and courageous lives. Speaking of love that develops among people, you talk about how intimacy is a great source of fear. Anything that makes us vulnerable can be a source of fear or anxiety. And nothing makes us more vulnerable than being in love with or intimate with another human being, because we can get hurt. People are reluctant to take that chance, particularly if their previous attempts at intimacy resulted in their being hurt. Sometimes it’s a wonder that any of us are willing to take the risk of that kind of vulnerability. But what is life without it? ANISA ARSENAULT
Inside the furry suit: Swoop, the Post University eagle Birdbrain. The 7-foot eagle loves raising money for charity, but not everybody is a fan. Swoop is a common name for fierce, winged mascots. Professional teams like the Philly Eagles and several colleges nationwide (including Miami University in Ohio and the University of Utah) have a “Swoop” on the field getting the crowds riled up. So what sets Swoop the Post University eagle apart? We decided to find out by talking to Bob Sembiante, communications associate at the school and one of the many people who navigate the world looking through the mesh neck of Swoop’s costume. What has Swoop been up to lately? Every year we do a United Way campaign on campus for our faculty and staff to contribute. So, Swoop has just finished up his visits to all of the
Fear of the furry suit The biggest thing is that people do get scared, and it’s mostly adults. You have to know when to back up a little bit and wave hello and make a wide circle around them. I went up to this woman and asked if she was OK and she said she really hates costume characters. With kids, too. They can be very sensitive to these things. So, when I see a kid who is frightened I get down on my knee and see eye to eye and shake their hand.

offices, encouraging people to come out and pledge. The employees love when Swoop comes through. We get tons of photos taken. It’s exciting for them to see them. You don’t expect a seven-foot-tall eagle to come walking through your office every day.
But most of Swoop’s duties are on the athletic field, right? Yes, on a more regular basis he appears at football, basketball and other sports games. He was a big draw this year because Post University just had its first home sprint football games on our new field.
Sprint football is different from regular football because there’s a weight limit: 172 pounds. It makes for a faster game, but the main difference is that all the rest of Post teams are NCAA Division II. Sprint football allows you to have a football team without
being in the NCAA division. You’re not the only “Swoop” around. How do you feel about that? From what I understand, the name came from a contest held years ago. I will just say that we’re the best Swoop
Study aid. New online, open-access initiative helps aspiring nurses Gearing up for the National Council Licensure Examination is about to get easier for aspiring nurses. While test prep resources previously have been limited to expensive review courses and lecture notes, students will soon have a wealth of open access, peer-developed and peer-reviewed study materials available online. The project is the result of a three-way partnership. It is funded by The Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence using the clinical nursing expertise of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. The Khan Academy, a non-profit focused on innovating free online education, will provide the platform to distribute the material. Resources focusing on nurs-
ing have been particularly lacking online. “I’ve always noticed this was a group of people who seemed interested in something like this,” said Dr. Richi Desai of Khan Academy, who has worked on developing health education materials in the past. “The MCAT tests pre-clinical information. What about clinical skills?” Nurses are responsible for a range of knowledge, like inserting IVs or catheters, that are less straightforward than studying physiology.” The structure of the study materials will tie directly to patient care. “One of the most essential skills of a nurse is critical thinking,” said Dr. Jane Kirschling, president of AACN. “You need to be able to take a wealth of information and decide what is most important
there is. As far as we are concerned there is no other Swoop. What is your sage advice to student volunteers looking to step into the costume? I tell them to be 100 percent enthusiastic at all times, and to drink lots of water beforehand because the suit is hot. The biggest thing is if I see that a person is physically fit and enthusiastic and can jump and move and have fun, we’re willing to put them in the suit and give it a try. Students love it — [one] just told me he was interested, but he’s 6-foot-2 so he can’t fit in the suit. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done in the Swoop costume? One time I had to drive from one part of the campus to the other in the costume and I was completely nervous, but nothing happened.

Positive innovations in nursing aﬀect the patient experience. “Nurses are the key to improving healthcare.

RULES ARE FOR SUCKERS I used to hear the same piece of career advice all the time: “Just work hard and you’ll be recognized.” I believed it for years. People mean well when they say it, but it’s terribly misleading — especially for women. Women are known to be diligent workers. They’re excelling at college and graduate school. But the attributes that allow us to perform well in an educational setting — a propensity for hard work, perseverance, striving to get things “right” — don’t necessarily translate to success in the workplace. “One of the reasons women do so well in school is that we are great followers of authority,” says Victoria Pynchon, co-founder of the consultancy She Negotiates. “We check the right boxes, follow proper procedure and tend not to act outside of the authority we are given.” That can backfire on us at the office. Because in addition to working hard, getting ahead depends on getting to know the right people, speaking up for yourself and taking a few risks — all of which can feel uncomfortable for women, many of whom operate firmly in “good girl” mode.
The Broad Experience
ASHLEY MILNE-TYTE Ashley Milne-Tyte is a radio producer and reporter based in New York City. She hosts a bimonthly podcast called “The Broad Experience” about women in the workplace.
Women need to think outside the box to excel at the workplace. / GETTY IMAGES Quoted

But while Jane is toiling until midnight in the expectation that her efforts will pay off, Joe may be hanging out with the boss after hours at a bar or on the golf course. The next thing you know, he’s been promoted because his bosses know him and feel comfortable with him, while Jane is bewildered that her work has apparently gone unrecognized. McKinsey & Company, as part of its research on women in the workplace, found that men spent more time networking than women, and that men are promoted on their potential to perform, women on their actual performance. Pynchon tells the story of a lawyer she knows who, returning to her firm after maternity leave, was tempted to ask her boss if she could work part-time. A female colleague advised her, “No, it’s a path to nowhere. Just work parttime — don’t ask for it. The guys do it all the time.” So the woman now comes in late and leaves early “which is hard for a female rule-follower to do,” Pynchon acknowledges. But by subtly subverting the system, she’s able to spend more time at home while staying firmly on the partner track. What seemed daring at first is now just her daily routine.
Lifestyles. One opinion in the debate on tattoos in the workplace The influx of millennials into the workforce, and the potential for age gaps between co-workers, can result in differing opinions on what is considered appropriate office wear. And thanks to a few stereotypes, Generation Y often has a reputation for taking a more casual approach to office appearance. That’s not to say all millennials want to wear their sweatpants to work. It just means that younger hires are perceived to have open minds when it comes to what is acceptable in the office. Kim Holt recently graduated and entered the workforce with tattoos. Here’s what she has to say about how tattoos can work both ways for your career. Did you think about the eﬀect your tattoos might have on your career before
you got them? I 100 percent thought about how my tattoos might affect my career before I got them. However, aside from my tattoos, I have always been a creative and eccentric person. I knew from a very young age that when I grew up I was going to be in a field that thrived on creativity and originality. Has having tattoos ever hindered your career or education? Having tattoos has yet to hinder my education. Many universities these days pride themselves on their acceptance of diversity. My tattoos have yet to impact my career. Have you had to adjust your clothing at times to avoid a potential employer seeing your tattoos? Where I currently work, I
Having tattoos may not harm your career. / RON CHAPPLE STUDIOS
have never been made to feel like I cannot show my tattoos. However, when I first interviewed for the job I did dress appropriately and professionally. I think that no matter what kind of job you are interviewing for, whether you are allowed to show your tattoos or not, dressing formally is simply a sign of respect. I have interviewed
for many casual and formalattire jobs and I never let the day-to-day attire influence my interview wear. MEAGHAN GREAVES

McCarthy should flaunt her size Re: ‘Outcry over Melissa McCarthy Elle cover’ (Metro, Oct. 18-20) Initially I was miffed at Elle for covering up Melissa’s body in a voluminous coat. If I hadn’t already read that she was on the cover, I wouldn’t have recognized her. Then I recalled a previous interview where Melissa admitted to wanting to “magically” be smaller and that she didn’t
know why she’s at her current size despite daily tennis lessons and Pilates and eating healthy foods. Also, she said nothing when size-acceptance activists were unhappy with her being the only of the “Bridesmaids” in sleeves while her co-stars were sleeveless. As much as I’d love to believe that she’s a proud and confident fat woman, Melissa is apparently not happy with her body. It seems like she’s more resigned to her size rather than embracing it. I hope she learns to truly love the image in the mirror. Not only is she immensely

Inflation of ignorance Re: ‘Ignorance is bliss’ (Metro, Oct. 17) David Snieckus must be a very happy man. There is a reason government does not print all the money it needs. He should get an economics textbook, and look up inflation — and also see if there is a chapter on Germany in the early 1920s.

Late push costly for Pats NFL. An uncommon penalty in overtime burned the Patriots yesterday as they fell to the Jets, 30-27. When it comes to penalties, the New York Jets (4-3) are right up there with the best — or in this case, worst — of them. But yesterday afternoon, it was their opposition, the Patriots (5-2), who were hit with a flag at the worst possible time. The penalty wound up costing New England the game, a 30-27 defeat at MetLife Stadium. As Jets kicker Nick Folk missed a 56-yard field goal attempt in OT that would have given the Patriots great field goal position, the whistle blew. Patriots defensive lineman Chris Jones was flagged for a 15-yard unsportsman-
like conduct penalty after pushing a teammate from behind, in hopes to surge through the offensive line. That gave the Jets the ball, great field position, another field goal try and the win. While the talk of the game will undoubtedly be about the call, there were plenty of other intriguing sub-plots yesterday in New Jersey. Here are three of them:
Gronk’s return Rob Gronkowski made his long-awaited return to the field for the Patriots. There was plenty to like in his 2013 debut, as he hauled in eight balls for 114 yards. Gronkowski, who sported a large brace on his left arm, wasn’t an every-snap player in his first game back, but did play in more than half of the team’s offensive snaps. He also was Tom Brady’s favorite target on Sunday, as he was thrown to a whopping 17 times. But it was a drop

late in the fourth quarter, on what would have been a great one-handed catch, that he’ll lose sleep over.
Hurtin’ unit There were plenty of questions surrounding the Patriots’ defense heading yesterday’s game, with Jerod Mayo, Vince Wilfork, Tommy Kelly and Aqib Talib all out. The answers are mixed. For one, Dont’a Hightower didn’t have a great game. He looked behind in coverage, and was one of the players responsible for allowing a Geno-Smith-rushing touchdown in the third quarter. Jets receiver Jeremy Kerley (eight receptions, 114 yards, TD) took advantage of a banged-up secondary, and running back Chris Ivory rushed for 104 yards.
Third-quarter meltdown The Patriots went into the third quarter with a 2110 lead and the ball. A scoring drive may have been just enough to put this one out of reach, but instead, Brady made the ultimate mistake — a pick-six. With that, the Jets cut it to 21-17, and would score 10 more points in the quarter to take the lead. The Patriots’ offense was abysmal in the third quarter, racking up three drives of negative yardage, literally going backwards up until they got the ball with 1:25 left in the quarter. By then though, the Jets had already taken the momentum and the lead.

“It was something we talked about probably during camp and stuﬀ and it just slipped out of my mind. So I just, it was just my mistake, nobody else’s.

Every night, a new hero for 2013 Sox MLB. Victorino is just the latest player to step up in the clutch for the World Seriesbound Red Sox. Another game and a different player coming through with a clutch hit, leading them to victory. Itâ€™s been that kind of year for the Red Sox and it continued in their 3-2 series win over the Tigers in the ALCS. David Ortizâ€™s grand slam in the eighth inning of Game 2, Mike Napoliâ€™s home runs in Games 3 and 5 and Shane Victorinoâ€™s seventh inning grand slam in Game 6 all contributed mightily to Bostonâ€™s third American League
pennant in the last 10 years and in continuing the teamâ€™s historic worst-to-first turnaround from last season. â€œEvery single guy on this roster and beyond can feel good about getting to the World Series because everyone did something to contribute to the success of this team,â€? reliever Craig Breslow said. In the regular season, 16 different players had gamewinning RBIs, including nine players with six or more. Napoli and Dustin Pedroia led the team with 12, with Stephen Drew right behind with 10. As a team they also had 10 walk-off hits by seven different players, with Drew, Napoli and Jonny Gomes leading the way with two apiece. One of the more memoraDIRECTORY

ble hits from an unexpected player was in the middle of September in Tampa when utility man Mike Carp hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the 10th inning to propel the Sox over the Rays. Although they donâ€™t have any walk-off hits this postseason, their clutch hitting has carried over into October with a pass-the-torch-to-thenext-guy mentality. Having not started a single game all postseason, rookie Xander Bogaerts was inserted into the lineup for Games 5 and 6. The young stud responded, going 2-for-4 with two runs scored while showing tremendous poise, working three walks in the two games.
