The Boston Red Sox Parade

Some awesome facts about the Boston Red Sox parade on Monday, presented in bullet form for your reading pleasure:

  • Jonathan Papelbon donned a kilt and danced the Irish jig (Riverdance) on three separate occasions.
  • The Red Sox traveled in twenty amphibious, World War II era duck boats (if you’re ever in Boston, make sure to go on the Duck Tour).
  • Papelbon was accompanied by the Dropkick Murphys, a Boston-based punk rock band with heavy Irish folk music influence.
  • On two stops, Papelbon danced alone; however, at the City Hall Plaza, at the end of the parade, Papelbon was joined by relievers Hideki Okajima and Mike Timlin.
  • Most of the players and manager Terry Francona wore bright red hooded championship sweat shirts.
  • Other players, such as Kevin Youkilis and Mike Timlin, had shirts which read “We did it. AGAIN.”
  • Many fans yelled “Re-sign Lowell!”
  • Manny Ramirez agreed and yelled, “Forget about A-Rod, we’ve got Mike Lowell in the house!”
  • Red Sox President, Larry Lucchino, had a lame analogy regarding which World Series Championship (2004 or 2007) was sweeter. He said, “They’re two flavors of ice cream — they both taste good. You can’t choose among them. I think the next one is going to taste good, too.”
  • The highlight of the parade goes to a fan whose sign read “A-Rod: Mr. April, Miss October.” Quality indeed.

So there you have it.
