Just moved to Auburndale. Fiancé works by Fenway and is looking for affordable gym. No car. Thoughts on either location?

Updated to reflect fact court did not order him freed.

The Supreme Judicial Court today ruled a man convicted of a 1981 murder in Kenmore Square can apply for parole because he was only 17 at the time he became a killer, because his automatic sentence of life without parole violates both the federal and state prohibitions on cruel and unusual punishment, at least as far as adolescents are concerned.

The US Supreme Court ruled last year that juvenile murderers could not be automatically sentenced to life without parole but that a judge could use his discretion to impose such a sentence after a hearing.

Red Sox officials say they want to add three more places to buy hard liquor, add sales of beer in bottles and extend alcohol sales on Yawkey Way as a way to reduce crowding in the stadium during Red Sox games and other events at Fenway Park.

At a hearing before the Boston Licensing Board this morning, Dennis Quilty, the team's licensing attorney, and Lawrence Cancro, the team's senior vice president of Fenway affairs, said Fenway's concourse was built in simpler times and cannot really handle the large flows of people who concentrate there in search of refreshments before games and events and in between innings.

The Red Sox want to expand the number of stands inside Fenway Park that can serve up hard liquor - and to extend beer sales at games that run long.

The team is scheduled to appear before the Boston Licensing Board on Wednesday to seek several amendments in its current liquor license for Fenway and Yawkey Way.

The Sox want to increase the number of concession stands that can sell mixed drinks with no more than an ounce of actual liquor in them from the five approved in 2011 to eight - including one on Yawkey Way.

A California photographer who claims the BSO owes him lots of money for the photographs it used for some Boston Pops concerts last year is, of course, suing.

The BSO replies that the photographer offered his work for free in exchange for letting him use the BSO name to try to drum up sponsorships for the "Visions of America" concerts. Since he couldn't find any sponsors, the BSO says it doesn't owe him the time of day.

One of the Boylston Street car flippers

Hope you enjoyed yourself, kid.

State Police have released photos of some of the people celebrating on the carcass of that car that got overturned on Boylston Street after the Sox won the World Series Wednesday night.

They're hoping people who know these guys will call up Trooper Brian Simpkins of the Boston Barracks at 617-727-6780.

On the Longfellow

On the Longfellow Bridge.

What a great day for a parade.

From Fenway Park to the banks of the Charles, Bostonians lined up early for a chance to see the 2013 World Champion Boston Red Sox - and doesn't that sound good to hear?

When the procession of Duck Boats got to the Boston Marathon finish line in Copley Square, it stopped. Jonny Gomes put the World Series trophy and a Boston 617 Strong jersey on the finish line. Then the players and fans listened and joined in a chorus of "God Bless America."

Glenn Cabo shows more of the scene:

Chad Duncan was the unfortunate owner of that car that got flipped on Boylston Street last night. Somebody's set up an online fundraiser to help him pay for the damage:

Boston's better than that. Especially after this year, no one who truly loves the city of Boston should ever engage in willful wanton destruction. Let's band together and help Chad pay for what these idiots did. He shouldn't have to.
