Joe Castiglione, Red Sox radio announcer:
Swing and a ground ball, stabbed by Foulke. He has it. He underhands to first, and the Boston Red Sox are the World Champions! For the first time in 86 years, the Red Sox have won baseball's world championship. Can you believe it?
Joe Buck, Fox Sports announcer:
Back to Foulke! Red Sox fans have longed to hear it – the Boston Red Sox are world champions. ... It has been 86 years. Generations have come and gone. And for the first time since 1918, the Boston Red Sox are champions of baseball.

The New York Daily News - which I do not seem to have a jpg of - had this on its back page: "See You In 2090"! (Because the Red Sox win the WS every 86 years.)
