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

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.

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:

Jesse Kollins proposes a new hashtag: #BogaertsForMayor. Aruba's practically part of Boston anyway, right?

UPDATE: Really? Really, that's how the game ended? Stupid call that wouldn't have happened without that stupid throw.

Oh, er, well, so the Cardinals can play this game.

Charlie with a beard

Only Charlie won't use it, at least not until after the World Series, when maybe he and his pal Officer Horgan will shave the beards off for charity.

The T has posted an explanation of service after the Sox game - basically, if runs long, the T will extend subway hours or hold some commuter-rail trains.

8-1, that didn't even look very hard, which says something about Lester's pitching.
