The SOX Win the Series!!

I would like to think that this little Smith family brought those Boston sports teams some luck when we moved up here, but if we're being honest, they didn't really need it. Since we've lived in the Boston area, the Patriots went pretty far in their post-season, the Bruins made it to the Stanley Cup, and, in case you haven't heard, the Sox won the World Series! Even though the Boston teams continually do very well in their seasons, it's really the fan base that makes it so exciting to get invested here. Everyone is so passionate about these teams and we've found it to be pretty contagious! Even if the Sox hadn't won the Series, I'm pretty sure Ryan and I would still be fans for life. (Don't get me wrong, I will always love the Braves and Falcons.) But they did win the World Series, so last Saturday, Ryan and I trekked into the city to help the Sox celebrate their victory! 


Apparently there were over 2 million people lining the streets of Boston Saturday morning. Ryan and I made sure to get in there nice and early, and surprisingly had ZERO problems parking (definitely a first!) We grabbed breakfast at Finagle Bagel before finding our spots on Boylston Street, across from Copley Square. One by one, the duck boats started passing us, filled with some really happy baseball players!

Here's a little glimpse into the city Saturday morning!







The Trophy! 
Koji Bryant!

- I'm hoping this video works for everyone, because it's awesome. After all of the team had passed on their duck boats, Big Papi drove by in a semi-truck, rapping away! Seriously, the highlight of the parade!



Once the parade had passed us, we walked down the Charles, where the duck boats would eventually plop into the river and drive by us once again. We hung out for a while, but eventually decided to walk around a bit instead and grabbed a drink on Newbury before heading back to Weymouth.


Right off the Charles! 
We had such a fun time cheering the Sox to a victory and then helping them celebrate in style! Thanks for a great season, Boston!
