Helicopter over Fenway

As today's game approached, a teacher at the kidlet's school opened a window so the kids could better hear the flyover at nearby Fenway Parik.

Only they didn't hear anything - because unlike in years past, this year's flyover consisted of a Coast Guard helicopter, captured here by Brian D'Amico.

The Red Sox go before the Boston Licensing Board this week for permission to add cans to their repertoire of beer options at the lyric little bandbox this season.

In December, the board approved a Sox request to start selling beer in aluminum bottles - after Fenway officials assure the board that the bottles would be opened first and that, even if they were... Read more

Remy, of course, you know about. The Globe reports sideliner Dell, though, won't be talking over on-field action anymore. NESN, of course, won't say if that's because her boyfriend is Will Middlebrooks.

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... Read more

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... Read more

Jose Masso wrote a letter to the Globe after reading the eight essays and a poem about the Sox, none by Latinos about a team basically led by a Latino:

This is our “effing city too” and maybe, just maybe, under the new ownership of the Globe it will be reflected every time we celebrate the positive.

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.

Meanwhile, Bobby O'Neill, who set up an online fundraiser to help the... Read more

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... Read more

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

NESN reports the victory boats will head down Boylston before splashing into the Charles.

BONUS: The MBTA reports that because of the parade, the Red Line will operate normally, with trains and everything, this weekend. The T had originally planned to bus riders over the Longfellow for track work.

Start on Boylston Street at Ipswich Street;

The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports Boston and State Police made ten arrests in the area around Fenway Park last night - in addition to the guy Transit Police arrested after he allegedly ran into a Green Line tunnel.

Eight of the ten are from out of town. One of the other two lists Roxbury as his address but also said he was... Read more
