"Joe Keohane Comments on Weekly Dig Cover of Two Men Kissing

'As far as meaning, we decided to do it because it'd make a really striking image; because we wanted to see what would piss people off more, the gay aspect or the Sox-Yanks aspect; and because we wanted to float the theory that sexual tension is the real force behind the heated Sox-Yanks rivalry.
'The photo was conceived and shot by Kelsey Bennett, a Berklee Student and Weekly Dig intern (who also happens to be Tony Bennett's granddaughter). She's done a number of photos for us and is ingenious.'"
