The Edward Everett Elementary School in Dorchester was kind enough to invite Boston.com Moms into Mr. O'Halloran's third grade classroom yesterday, where we chatted with 8- and 9-year-old students about all things Red Sox and World Series.
"Everybody's just very excited about the possibility of the Red Sox winning the World Series," said Laura Miceli, principal at the school.
Find out what her students had to say about the beards, the plays, the obstruction call, and more in the video above.
And here is some more of what these passionate young Red Sox fans had to say:
Boston.com Moms: Who's your favorite player?
"My favorite player is Mike Napoli," said Nicholas, 8. "Because he supports his team so much. He can hit grand slams, like, wow! You can't believe it!"
Why is David Ortiz your favorite player?
"He's brave at everything," said Shakira, 8. "Even though he gets dust in his eyes, he's always brave and strong."
What do you do when a Red Sox player hits a home run?
"I just jump up and down and go in circles," said Damon, 9, who likes it best when Big Papi hits the ball.
Why are you a Boston Red Sox fan?
"I like the Boston Red Sox because it's a good team because it supports our city," said Nicky, 8.
Good friends Dylan and Luke, decked out in their Red Sox gear, demonstrate the arm-flailing Red Sox-rootin' moves they use while watching the Red Sox in the World Series.
Do you know about the obstruction call? Can you tell us about that?
Dylan, 8, (left) said, "It is not Middlebrooks' fault! I just walked out of the room."
Have your parents let you stay up late to watch the World Series?
Luke, 8, (right), said, "I just sit on the couch and pretend I am sleeping whenever they look."
