Celebrating the Champions

Saturday, most of Boston turned out to watch the Red Sox’ victory parade through town. In this post, I’ll show images of the team and duck boats – later I’ll have a post with photos of some of the more colorful fans out celebrating.

I’m from Oregon, so of course, the gallery must start with Oregon native and Oregon State University alum Jacoby Ellsbury. Looking right at me, obviously. Probably admiring my Oregon State hoodie. I’m not sure what those other people were thinking, wearing red and blue.

One of the team owners (someone near me said it was Tom Werner, but I can’t be responsible if that’s incorrect) holding the championship trophy, and at right is Officer Steve Horgan, made famous by this photo, and re-enacting the moment at which he earned his 15 minutes of fame.

Sox ace Jon Lester.

Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and his daughter.

Mike Carp doing “the sprinkler,” with Xander Bogaerts partially hidden at right.

David “Big Papi” Ortiz, with confetti raining down, rapping from the back of a truck.
