1. SOUNDBITE (English) Marty Walsh, Boston Mayor:
"I have great respect for Los Angeles. Mayor Eric Garcetti is a friend of mine and a colleague. We worked very closely with each other at the U.S. Conference of Mayors, but we don't lose LA. So to Mayor Garcetti, I just wanted to let you know that so we'll we'll talk later on. We did have a conversation yesterday, he wanted to bet something. And I'm pretty superstitious, so I stopped betting after after the first three bets when I became mayor. You know the Patriots, the Bruins, and B.C. lost so I say I'm going to stop and then the very next sports event that was the Patriots in Seattle and we know what happened there. So I am all done betting."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Marty Walsh, Boston Mayor:
"The Red Sox catchphrase this season is 'do damage.' That's for the players on the field not the fans in the street. So I just want want to be very clear on that. You know our police officers in Boston and our first responders have become experts in engaging crowds, communicating with people and making it clear what the goal is and heading off very dangerous situations before they arise."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) William Gross, Boston Police Commissioner:
"Today we'll have a multi jurisdictional, multiagency meeting at BPD headquarters to go over the operational plan to again ensure that there's communication, coordination and cooperation amongst our first responder families to ensure the safety of this large venue and of the city and that includes gleaning information from the Boston Regional Intelligence Center, fusion center, to see if there is any credible threats to Fenway Park during the World Series and we will keep you informed about anything that comes our way because as well, the biggest partners are the people in the community. We ask you, if you hear something, if you see something, say something. So you're a part of this first responder family as well."
