YOU SAID IN A RECENT RADIO INTERVIEW THAT WADE BOGGS USED THE WORD "NIGGER" EVERY DAY. HE DENIES THAT. IS HE LYING? The Ku Klux Klan hid their faces. Allright? So man, shut your mouth before somebody knock your ass out walking down the sidewalk.
I don't know which wife was talking [in the recent radio interview] Margo [Adams, with whom Boggs had a controversial affair] or Debbie. Margo says he was a racist bastard. Which is true?
I done been in a bar where I had to help pull some people off of you about using that [word "nigger"], and they asked me why I was fighting with the white boy. He's my teammate, man. I can't let y'all kill him. But Wade [was] wrong.
YOU PLAY AMATEUR BASEBALL IN RHODE ISLAND. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU? This baseball saves me. Those guys in the league mean more than anything. I still polish my shoes and get ready to play every Saturday and Sunday. And I play about 50 games over the summer. And I get a chance to pitch maybe 15 of them and I play short and third the rest. I like hitting and running the bases. It keeps me youthful. And it occupies a lot of time. Believe it or not, that two-and-a-half hours, three hours a day in the summer for those 50 days means a lot. It takes away a lot of hurt.
