[ cheers and jeers ] now, come on, now. they won fair and square. the world series last night, 6-1, they defeated the cardinals. bars in boston went crazy. it was like st. patrick's day mixed with new year's mixed with pretty much any night in boston. [ laughter ] it was really -- people had a really good time last night, which explains why today's most popular halloween costume in boston was hungover guy in same clothes as yesterday. [ laughter ] that's a great costume. >> steve: yeah. >> jimmy: fantastic costume. [ cheers ] very popular. a lot of people are really excited about the red sox winning, but nobody is more excited than the roots. but i'll just let them say.
here they are to offer their congratulations using their best boston accents. the roots, everybody. quest, you want to go first?

>> jimmy: i think -- kamal, that's not a boston accent. i think that's like a brooklyn accent. [ laughter ] all right. [ laughter ] okay, fine. the roots, everybody. there they are. [ cheers and applause ] boston accents. and did you see this? fox baseball commentator tim mccarver -- we love tim mccarver. he's retiring from broadcasting after a long career in the booth. last night's game was his last. so joe buck took a moment to offer some heartfelt words for his friend and partner. mccarver's response wasn't quite as heartfelt. take a look. >> you're the best to ever do this in this sport. and it has been an absolute honor and pleasure over these 18 years, 16 world series. you are the best, and i love you. i love you like a brother. i love you like a best friend. thanks for all that you've brought into my life both in a booth and outside a booth. >> ditto. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: ditto? [ applause ] i'd hate to be tim mccarver's wife on valentine's day. "i love you, honey, more than anything in the world." "right back at you." [ laughter ] i love that. of course, today is halloween, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] lookin' good. so everyone who went trick-or-treating, i just want to say i hope you had fun and i hope you stayed safe. and to everyone who gave out raisins, i want to say go to hell. [ laughter ] everybody loves halloween, but a lot of people don't know where the holiday comes from. so to help you out, here's a brief history of halloween. >> halloween comes from the latin word halloweenus, which means slutty costume day. [ laughter ] the first halloween costume was worn by benjamin franklin who dressed up as slutty liberty bell. [ laughter ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: everyone likes halloween. happy halloweenus. i love this.
everybody over at "the today show" was wearing costumes this morning. very festive. they dressed up as classic tv characters. and matt lauer really went for it this year, dressing up as pamela anderson from "baywatch." look at this. [ laughter ] i just figured out where in the world matt lauer is. my nightmares. [ laughter and applause ] wow! he went for it. and i was surprised to see even some politicians dressing up for halloween. let's take a look at this clip from a recent obama speech. >> with that, what i'd like to do is ask to say a few words starting with our outstanding current -- [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: hey, if you're going to be traveling soon, you should listen to this. the faa announced today that airline passengers can start
using cell phones and ipads during takeoffs and landings. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ yep. in related news, everyone was already doing that. [ laughter ] but thank you for your permission. i thought this was kind of weird. i saw that the former director of the cia, robert gates, has been nominated as the new president of the boy scouts. he went from the cia to the boy scouts. [ light laughter ] don't be surprised if you ask a little boy what's your badge for? and he's like, "if i tell you, i'll have to kill you." [ laughter and applause ] this is interesting. i guess even kids shows are starting to reflect what's going on with the economy. in fact, i heard that spongebob squarepants will soon be unemployed in a new episode. [ light laughter ] which explains the new name, spongebob sweatpants. [ laughter ] you can tell spongebob's unemployed by that new lyric --
♪ who lives in his car under the sea ♪ [ laughter ] oh man, higgins, you're going to laugh at this. this isn't good at all but really made me laugh. a church in the town of dixon, illinois, is getting a lot of attention after it showed up in a recent google earth picture that was taken from above. take a look at this. [ laughter and applause ] let's see that again. i just want to see that again. [ applause ] >> steve: i guess they're not happy to see me. >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] it would probably look bigger if they trimmed that tree. you know? [ laughter ] that's all the time we have. got a big show tonight. give it up for the roots, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪

i like it. it's fun for everybody, i guess. the time of year reminds me of something scary that happened to me years ago. it's scary to even talk about it. higgins, do you remember the lamp on my desk? >> steve: yeah, the scary lamp? >> jimmy: yeah, it was a scary lamp. i had a lamp on my desk, i don't know. i think it was haunted or something. it was a scary lamp. i know it sounds crazy, but it was just a scary lamp.
