Boston Police released this photo of Officer Steve Horgan midway through his charity trim today at World Shaving Headquarters in South Boston.
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 â€śeffing city tooâ€ť and maybe, just maybe, under the new ownership of the Globe it will be reflected every time we celebrate the positive.
They're hoping people who know these guys will call up Trooper Brian Simpkins of the Boston Barracks at 617-727-6780.
UPDATE: Drunken/shirtless Napoli timeline - note that one of the last shirts he wore was a Marty Walsh tee.
Mark Garfinkel has come up with an update for Charlie on the MTA:
Well, let me tell you of the story of a man named Napoli
On a proud and memorable day.
He put ten cents in his pocket, kissed fans in a skirt, went barhoppin' without a shirt.
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:
Conor Hanlon shows us a newly renamed pub in Newton Highlands.
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.
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.
The specific route.
Start on Boylston Street at Ipswich Street;
Left on Tremont;
Left on Cambridge Street;
Right on Blossom Street;
Finish in the Charles River
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.
A concerned citizen files this request on Citizens Connect:
"John Farrell is not allowed to buy his own beer in this town ever again!" Please sign this ordinance into law immediately.
"Case noted," the city vaguely replies.
Love that dirty water!
Parade on Saturday, apparently.
Across the city, people were partying like it was 1918. Fireworks were shot off accross the region. Iza Rey reports:
Someone is driving really slowly down Centre St in JP and honking their horn in a repetitive pattern
A bunch of bananas joined the celebration. People walked to the Marathon finish line in the Back Bay and bent down and kissed it.
There were scattered reports of bottles and even shoes being thrown at cops along Boylston Street, from the Landmark Center to Park Drive, but nothing like the standard rioting at UMass Amherst.
The mayor is asking businesses to let employees out at 4 p.m. and there are a series of planned road closings and parking bans.
This just in: If the Red Sox win, they're planning to shoot off some fireworks.
Go up 3-2 as Ortiz proves unstoppable. And no bizarre ending to the game.
Michael Dyer notes:
It has been 34,745 days since the Sox clinched a WS at home. TV didn't exist then. WW1 was still going on. Wednesday can't come soon enough
Game 3 ended with that controversial obstruction call against Will Middlebrooks.
Game 4 ended with that unusual pick off of Kolten Wong at first base.
So, naturally, the question is: What bizarre way will game 5 tonight end? What do you think? Overnight, it became a hot topic in Twitter. Some of the answers there:
