Boston Celebrates World Series Champs

(Boston, MA) – Boston is back to work after a weekend of celebration.  Red Sox fans from all over New England packed the streets Saturday for the World Series Victory Parade.   The team rolled down Boylston Street in bearded duckboats before launching into the Charles River.  The players stopped in Copley Square to honor the Marathon victims, where David Ortiz got out and jogged across the finish line.  Police say the crowd was remarkably well-behaved, only having to make a couple of arrests in the afternoon near the downtown bars.
