I love a parade! - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
I love a parade!
I especially love a parade when it goes right by the window. :) I just saw all the Sox, and the Dropkick Murphys, and vast numbers of staff going by in stately Duck boats. And I saw the trophy! Whee!

There are people climbing lamp posts to get a better view, and climbing on top of the public pay toilet, and shouting.

And from the Duck Boats, the one Lowell was on, someone was waving a t-shirt begging people to not sign A-Rod (for the uninformed, which would mean me if I hadn't randomly watched the news last night, to sign the expensive A-Rod, we'd lose Lowell, who just wants a long contract, and was valuable in the series). I love that the guys in the parade are taking as many pictures as the people watching the parade. And they have their kids and are pointing at the crowd. They look happy.

This is such a fun town when we win.

Of course, getting lunch with the neighborhood this crowded ought to be an adventure!

I was so disappointed that I couldn't go! Fenway is right by my dorm but I had to go to class :( It was really boring too.

Man, colleges should have just given it up for the day, especially in the Back Bay. It's culture!

I know! There were a bunch of people missing, but my teacher was upset, so I'm glad I didn't get on his bad side.

The Dropkick Murphys? Awesome.

Man, that sounds like fun.

Yup. They were riding along on a flatbed truck. Papelbon was on with them, I think, doing his dance.

I'm so jealous. I was watching it on channel five (wcvb, I guess it isn't channel five across the board) and did the sound get weird on the Murphys' show for real or was that just channel five being weird. But that was awesome.

If the Red Sox sign Payrod, they'll only end up with no championships and a disgruntled fanbase. Which could describe the Red Sox fanbase from 1919-2003. ;)

Congratulations though on the victory. Celebration parades are fun.

Lucky you! I am very jealous. I wish I could've skipped school to see it.
