I went to the Rolling Rally today, honoring the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. I took a long lunch with one of my co-workers and we headed over to Copley Square. We watched the Duck Boats roll by with the players and Red Sox staff on board. I took a bunch of pictures, and here are some of the best. The first few are are a few shots of the huge crowd that gathered to salute the champs.

Around 12:30 or so, the vehicles carrying the players started to come through Copley. The crowd was loud as the various World Series heroes came through. The Duck Boats are really the ideal vehicle for these types of events. They are open in the back, so the players can stand there and wave to the crowd and they're high enough so that pretty much everyone can see as the Ducks roll by.

The owners boat came through first. Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino (in the red hat) are pictured here.

This is the best shot of the bunch. Curt Schilling holds The Trophy over his head.

You all know that guy in the middle, right?

It was really a great and exciting time at the parade. Maybe the Patriots can arrange to have another one of these in February.
