'Band of Bearded Brothers': Aztec Gino gives the Red Sox his blessing

Celtics superfan Aztec Gino has been a Beantown b-ball fan since 2008, but with the Red Sox finally making it back to the ALCS, Gino felt the need to give Boston's baseball team his blessing.

"I've attended a few games, but this is special," Gino exclaimed. "This is the pennant. This is the best team in Major League Baseball. This is the best fans in the nation."
