Going in for the parade with my 3 year old son. I’ve always gone solo previously and stood down by park st, but I’ve heard the crowds are smaller near the park, is there a recommendation for the best place to watch from? Thanks

I vote for David Ortiz.
Gee, I hope this doesn't happen. His accent is so strong that I would need subtitles. Now, in case you think that means I don't love him, forgeddaboudit. Pedro still has an accent, but I understand every word out of his mouth. How about him?
I prefer someone not connected to previous Sox championships. I love Ortiz and Pedro and enjoyed watching them have their moment with this team on FOX and The MLB Network, but this day is about the 2018 team. Papi and Pedro can fade into the background for the day.

They've been showing the MLB films of all three previous titles this morning. I haven't been able to turn it off. Which raises the question: who narrates the 2018 edition? 2004 was Denis Leary. 2007 was Matt Damon. 2013 was Ben Affleck. What celeb with Boston ties gets the assignment this year?

Anybody else watching the channel 5 coverage?
Anchor just referred to Pearce as “just a security guy” when the camera panned in.

Xander didn’t seem all that excited talking to Heidi.

Good to see Remy smiling and having fun.

Alex Cora is fucking awesome :)

Varitek is hanging out with Keith Foulke.

Anyone have any idea how soon they’ll be at the common? Working close by but unable to watch a stream.

If you look at video of the Sale harangue in the dugout, it appears that no one is listening. We know that neither Holt nor Moreland heard it. This is myth-making at its most egregious.

right here
from twitter:
#RedSoxParade highlight: i watched a girl shotgun a bud light at 11am, and when she threw the can on the ground, an officer politely tapped her on the shoulder and asked her to throw it away

Guess you pick your battles...

Just got back from Boylston, David Price and Chris Sale were hyped.

Bit sad that Ryan Madsen didn’t get a seat though.

My son who is down there watching the parade just texted me "Pearce looks like he's needing that railing for support." So I guess he's also drinking the beers
