The Globe's Andrew Ryan reports police officers will be instructed to order down anyone they see atop a snow pile during tomorrow's Patriots victory parade.
Too much snow on the ground, too much cold, the Mayor says:
Due to today's bad weather and the worsening forecast for tonight, the New England Patriots and the City of Boston have made the mutual decision to postpone the victory parade until Wednesday, February 4 at 11 a.m.
This is the above-the-fold half of the Seattle Times print-edition front page today.
Because that's when the Patriots Duck Boat parade will start at the Prudential Center. It will end with at City Hall, rather than with the ceremonial dunking in the Charles, because the Duck Boats are not equipped as icebreakers.
UPDATE: Mayor Walsh says no rally at City Hall, though, due to all the snow and the windchill. Also: City is working to remove snow from everywhere, not just the parade route, mayor says. He adds:
I think we're gonna have school tomorrow. We're not cancelling school for the parade tomorrow, I can tell you that.
With police keeping people out of Kenmore Square who weren't there before the end of the game, fans who just want to be part of something big are streaming towards the Parkman Bandstand.
Chris in Boston captured a large crowd on its way there.
UPDATE, 11:40 p.m. People began leaving the bandstand around 11:25 and started heading towards Kenmore Square. Some people began throwing ice chunks on Boylston Street; one car had its windshield shattered at Boylston and Ring Road.
Ryan captured the BPD squad at Landmark Center after the Super Bowl.
Police have locked down Kenmore: No cars, pedestrians being allowed in; only people in Kenmore bars being allowed onto streets - and that to leave the area. The Green Line is bypassing Kenmore station.
What a finish to that game!
Cue the Duck Boats! Maybe that'll get the roads cleared.

In a message to students, BPD Commissioner William Evans says play nice and don't do anything you wouldn't want your dean of students to find out about:

Super Liquors is, of course, conveniently located on Truman Parkway in Hyde Park.
Loren and Wally do the honors.
A Seattle radio station checks in with Tom's Big Balls.
Alec Shane, for one, is deflated by the news:
There's really no way around it: this absolutely sucks. What should be a time for celebrating, enjoying the moment, and getting excited for the Super Bowl is now going to be two straight weeks of finger pointing, expressing disgust, and exclaiming complete outrage.
