Red Sox OFs Jonny Gomes and Shane Victorino appeared on TBS' "Conan" last night, with host Conan O'Brien asking about the beards the team grew during the season. O'Brien then said to Gomes, who was stroking his beard, "Please don't fondle it in front of me, it's very strange." O'Brien: "You guys single-handedly replaced the high-five with beard-tugging." Gomes said of the team chemistry and the idea the Red Sox were not the most talented team in the league, "Everyone talks about the chemistry and having a good time and keeping it loose. (But Red Sox GM) Ben Cherington and the staff didn't go out and get six rodeo clowns to sit in our clubhouse. He went out and got good ballplayers." O'Brien said the "greatest tradition in all of sports" is when the Red Sox win the World Series, "they ride in duck boats throughout all of Boston." Victorino noted Red Sox P Jake Peavy purchased the duck boat he rode in and "drove it to Alabama." Gomes: "Now we can have a World Series parade whenever we want at Jake's house" ("Conan," TBS, 11/5). Watch highlights from Conan's interview of Gomes and Victorino.
