On Oct. 16, 2003, Aaron Boone sent a ball into the left-field seats at Yankee Stadium and placed himself right next to Bucky Dent in Yankees-Red Sox lore. Boone, now an ESPN analyst, told our own Front Row what the last decade has been like for him since the Game 7 ALCS homer that extended the Curse one more year.

"It never ceases to amaze me how many people on both sides of the ledger have an intimate story about that moment,” Boone said. “It’s one of those moments where people can recall exactly where they were, what they were doing and what they were thinking. I guess it’s just made me realize how big of a rivalry the Red Sox/Yankees is. It was at one of the heights of the rivalry.”
