The NESN stream is terrible. Why do they think we want live shots of Steve Lyons in Fenway?

Nobody wants to see Steve Lyons talk in an empty Fenway Park. Put the parade full screen already with audio.

I've been watching for about 10 minutes (at work) and it looks like there is nobody there ...

And the trainer had to check on Nunez three times.
As they went past where I was standing I saw there were about six Police walking alongside the bullpen boat.

I joked to my wife that it was to make Kimbrel feel at home.

She hit me.

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...
The drink of choice behind me was apparently Dr. McGillicuddy's Mentholmint, based on the 30-odd empty nips on the ground once the fans cleared out.

Watching Price with his arm around Holt right now being interviewed, REALLY hope this ascension of Price lasts. He is kind of an odd bird the way he talks to the press, BUT apparently his teammates love him, and he is a great teammate,so maybe thats just going to have to be enough. Of course if he keeps pitching this way, its a moot point.

MLBN as well as NESN repeating parade coverage at 8 pm.
Is it replayable online anywhere?

edit: I'm watching the pre-parade rally on Facebook now.

edit2: the FB stream of the whole parade is available as well. I should have checked before I asked. :-/

From the SI article that has been linked in other threads:
"Brock loves playing in Boston,” Cora says. “You know at Fenway, when they introduce Luis Tiant or one of those guys in the third inning of games—‘Legends of Fenway’? That’s what Brock always says he wants to be.”
Meanwhile, with slightly less gravitas, Holt was confirming his newly acquired status as future Third Inning Legend. “I’ll be up there in the box and wave to the crowd,” he said. “I’ll be coming back for years.”

Watched parade from my office window. Great stuff. Was it just me though, or did they move faster than in past parades? Seemed like they flew by.

"We scored 16 at Yankee Stadium. Suck on it" - Alex Cora

Alex Cora is awesome in every way. I can't believe he said that (him) having a teenage daughter. Also wasn't sure if he was talking about the 1st or 2nd Pearce HR.

This beer can throwing is nuts. Could hit a kid in the head. What idiots.
There was waaaaay too many drunk college kids. First time I've seen people drinking open beer cans on the T in long time. (Although maybe Busch doesn't qualify as beer)

Thanks Kevlog, great shots
Happy to share them. The shot of the line at Coogan's only captured half of the line. It was almost an entire block long.

Oh, I wanted to add that we arrived at Park Street about fifteen minutes before the parade arrived and the sky was already full of red confetti. It was bizarre. Then I looked waaaaay up in the sky and realized that helicopters were dropping huge amounts of the confetti from about a mile up. I'd never seen that before.

I can confirm this. Seemed 3 out of 5 were this

Yeah this was the fastest parade of the 4 for sure, and probably fastest of the 11, except maybe the celtics just based on size of team.

Honestly, seeing Dustin Pedroia up there is like seeing Papi, Varitek, etc. - he seems like more of a reminder past greatness in this parade than a part of the present team. It's too bad, because he does join Ortiz in having three rings even though his contribution to 2018 was outranked by Dan Butler and Jalen Beeks.

I think his contribution in the clubhouse was far more valuable than you may think.

"We scored 16 at Yankee Stadium. Suck on it" - Alex Cora

I think it's debatable whether Alex was making fun of the Yankees or was making fun of us. The quote was to the effect that when they lost game two to the Yankees everyone was "panicking here," but then they put up 16.

Maybe everyone already knows this. The twitters seemed to suggest he was telling the Yankees to suck on it but I think he was ragging the nervous fans. (Raises hand.)

Asking only out of curiosity, not getoffmylawn-ism....

Does the city pick up the tab for an event like this?

Someone had to pay for police OT etc. I would think if the city was smart there would be some sort of revenue stream available from sponsorships....

A 19-year-old Sandwich man was arrested Wednesday during the Red Sox World Series victory parade after authorities say he struck someone riding one of the duck boats with a beer can.
Boston police said in a statement that Patrick Connolly is charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct.

That "someone" was Alex Cora.


And one of the WS trophies was damaged by another beer can that was thrown.
