Posts Tagged ‘Rolling Rally’

The traditional Rolling Rally victory parade took place yesterday, and what a victory parade it was.  Almost one million people turned up in person to watch the team roll through by land as well as by sea.

But this year’s parade was really special.  The team made a special stop at the finish line of the Boston Marathon to commemorate the tragic events that took place on that occasion.  They placed the World Series trophy on the finish line along with a jersey numbered 617 that said “Boston Strong.” Boston Strong indeed.  This year’s victory was exactly what the city of Boston needed, and to see the players communing with the city in remembering the Marathon tragedy was just a really beautiful thing.

The celebration itself was epic, and it was just awesome.  The glory indeed that has returned to Boston this year.  The glory, glory, glory that is ours after we won the 2013 World Series.  Oh, the glory.  What can I say? It was a victory parade.  We had a victory parade for a reason.  And to see thousands and thousands and thousands of people celebrate that victory really shows what the Red Sox mean to Red Sox Nation.

Technically, the offseason officially began as soon as the World Series ended.  Now that the Rolling Rally has taken place, attention will turn to things like who will come back next year, who’s talking to who, and who will strike what deal when and for how long and how much.  But no matter how much business must be talked this offseason, the epic and awesome and ultimate glory is ours.

In other news, the Bruins lost to the Penguins but beat the Ducks and Islanders.
