The Game 3 scene
Tickets are hard to come by, and it seems everybody's got a tale about gaining entry to the series. Dan Newman, center, from Blacksburg, Va., skipped class to see the game after his friend won the tickets in a lottery. Jill Deroche, left, a Peabody native, held no hope for a ticket. She drove from Scott Air Base in Bellville, Ill., just to grab an autograph from her favorite Red Sox players.
