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.

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

Ed. note: This raises the troubling question of which is more vile: Dr Pepper or Moxie?

By - 10/13/13 - 11:45 pm

Oh, and the cop celebrating the home run? Chief Daniel Linskey reports it was Officer Stephen Horgan.
