The Red Sox won their title and today we finally got to see them in person! The Red Sox Victory Parade took place at around noon today. From Fenway Park to Boston Common...etc then back to Fenway Park.
Since it was a bit too far to go downtown, we went to Fenway to send them off.
We arrived at around 10ish. The crowd was not too big then but it kept growing. Generally speaking the Rex Sox nation is quite polite so we didn't have a rough time waiting. Everybody was cheering and we got a chance to be on TV! Hubby's classmate made a Japanese sign and I believe we may have gotten some attention.
Unfortunately, we were unable to get a very close look of all of them when they came out. Since they were leaving from the opposite direction, we decided to climb the fence to the parking lot to get closer to the ducks.
So there we were right beside the duck which Dice-K was on and tried to capture a few pictures. We shouted but didn't get any attention from him.
I wanted to see Okajima too, but he was a bit further down and so we didn't get to do so. But I was happy that I got to see Youkilis and Mike Lowell!
I came home after to catch the rest of the show on TV and saw Papelbon doing his Irish dance. Looks like lots of fun but I didn't dare to get out there in that crowd! There must have been 100s of thousand of people there!
Hopefully we'll have another parade yet next year!
