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 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.

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.

Or a drink, apparently.

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.

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.

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.

Cracked windshield

Derek McLeod reports on an incident early this morning on Boylston Street in the Fenway:

Moron walked over car and smacked his chin on window.

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.
