confetti was stuck in my hair all day

So, just so we're all clear, I know that there was a series of important games and we won something and all that. And some people are under the impression that the parade/rolling rally/whatever is about that. But, for me? That parade will always be known as the Parade to Celebrate the Day That Matt Clement Declared Free Agency. The only thing that was missing was a boat where someone was throwing baseballs at Clement.

And now, the photos:


Of all my (MANY MANY MANY-- I am unashamed to admit that I totally chased Beckett's boat from Mass Ave down to the library before stopping to just watch the rest of the boats. it's a rare day that you can cover your stalker instincts with "celebration") photos of my boyfriend, Josh Beckett, this is the one where he looks the least bored. I'm not saying he's bored with winning or anything, he just thinks we're all stupid and he'd really like to get home and start planning all the things he's going to make John Lester kill during Beckett's Boot Camp.


Trophy. Coaches. Awesome.


I'm sad that the other pic I have of DiceK is so fuzzy because this is just before he smiled with the most adorable and giant smile every. I know he's shaky, but he's so CUTE!


Am I the only one who thinks it's weird that this guy has two World Series rings here? Bring on the chicken parm.


Practically like a live person!


Did anyone see Theo's postgame interviews where he went on and on about "trusting the process?" If so, do any of you think he's maybe been reading The Secret? It's just a little cultish, you know. Also, both kelly and I, at different locations along the route (we work very far apart! so sad) saw the same scenario unfold: Theo's boat rolls along, Theo smiles, waves, creatively visualizes his own awesomeness, etc. Then, the parade pauses. And some delightful member of NDRaPRSFftEMRSoML starts a "Resign Lo-well!" chant. Theo slowly realizes the boat isn't going to move and the chant's not going to stop, no matter how creatively he visualizes and looks more and more uncomfortable until finally something in the lower part of his boat necessitates his immediate attention. BRILLIANT.


Speaking of the MVP. And Lugo. I have nothing bad to say about Lugo right now. Huh.


Manny is going to be on The Tonight Show tomorrow. Manny. On a talk show. Oh, someone up there really really loves us. And the Backstreet Boys are going to be on too! I hear they're looking for a fifth member and they're a group that "coined" the word "tragical." So.


Pride of Hyde Park. Oh MDC, why you so fly?


Warrior man. Amazing.


I'm not far away, he's just that tiny.


I have never found Youk as close to good looking as in this photo. Weird.


This is kind of far away, but I love Tito's smile here. He didn't rock back and forth even once during the parade!


This isn't the best pic I got of Timlin, but come on, he's DANCING. With his kids. I know my favorite version of Timlin is the one that fucks your wife just 'cause he can, but seriously, rocking out with kids Timlin might be almost as good.

Sadly, I didn't actually get any good pics of the blog-sake (the bit of his face in the one above is the best), because I was on the wrong side of the flatbed, but I did see him a little. He seemed out of his mind. Which is how I like it.

Great pics! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who took pictures of the coaches (specifically John Farrell - please don't leave me, Pittsburgh sucks!) - if you search flickr for photos tagged with his name, I think I'm pretty much the only person who took his picture. LOVE.

How long 'til pitchers and catchers?

wow...i'm glad someone else is on the same wavelength

his duck boat stopped right next to me for a couple minutes due to a hold up...i was soo tempted to jump the fence...getting arrested for attempting to molest beckett...totally worth it

The dude from Jordan's furniture -- on the same duckboat at Manny? C'mon now...

I watched Paps on both QVC and Letterman last night -- I love him more and more every day.

great job on the pics...you are probably one of the only lucky ones that got pics of Beckett. Even when I replayed the rally on TV he was on the opposite side of the street. Attempted molestation would have definitely gotten the silver bracelets but would have been worth it.

I missed Manny's appearance, but I did catch Papelbon on QVC... It was great except for the host guy almost calling him "Joshua" a couple of times, that was awkward. Hehe.
