Same reason Charlie Moore seemed to be on one...chucklefuck Boston media types find their way up there. Love it, or more likely hate it, Barstool has a big following. Moore on the other hand must have compromising photos of someone, because I'm not sure how the hell that guy is still on television.
Given how his NESN shows worked, I assume he's paying for the right to ride.

Yeah, Portnoy has tons of money and a vast following. I’m sure one of his connections within the organization hooked him up.

I like fishing.

I would like to learn more about fishing around Boston.

I"m a big Boston sports fan.

I find Charlie Moore's show impossible to watch.

Sorry if this has been asked already but who foots the bill for this? With the police detail & the cleanup afterwards i would think the extra tax revenue from the 1M+ fans in the city spending money on a Friday would not cover this.

I believe Boston budgets for this annually, so they have a few years surplus on hand!

Thanks so much for posting. That was fun to see. Impressed by Jayson's answers. And Jrue and Jaylen too.

Happy this is a Friday.

Why didn't they sell tickets to this, for the Shamrock Foundation, or something?
my guess is it was all hands on deck outside the garden and getting those guys to the duck boats.

Great day. Took my daughter in to meet up with my brother in law and my niece. Originally planned to go from Riverside but the lot was totally full by 9:15. So I did what I did in 2008 and parked on a residential street in Waban and we went in from there (I was originally hesitant -- I figured a bunch of full trains would go by and we'd never get on but then I realized they'd have to send some empty ones from Riverside to make sure other stops could get on. We watched by Park Street Station on the Boston Common side. It was jammed -- more crowded than Pats in 2001, Sox in 2004 or Celtics in 2008 (I was away the day of the Bruins parade in 2011). I couldn't see a whole lot but got some videos. The girls worked their way through the crowd and got up front against the gates -- we cared more that they could see than us. Crowd was hyped and there were a LOT of young people who haven't learned about hydrating and putting some food in their stomach before pounding booze on a hot day. But that was the only downside. We had a great time. A couple of pics (my favorite sign I saw;; my niece and my daughter)

What a great day, went with a number of friends and their kids, youngest being 5 years old, felt so bad for that kid; went his whole life without seeing a victory parade. Cross that one off his bucket list.

I wonder how the players felt seeing it and being a part of it; by that I mean seeing that sea of green and white, north of what, 1.5 million people makes them realize how much this city loves the team and how rabid the fan base actually is........to perform night after night in a sold out arena is one thing, but to see what they saw today, I'm sure it makes them feel great and truly adored by millions of fans.

The look on many of the players faces I saw was nothing but pure joy with a touch of amazement at that reception.

No one throws a victory parade quite like the City of Boston does, that's for sure.

Fun day. Standing room only on the 8:24 Norfolk train was an early indication of how big the crowd was going to be. Got in to South Station at about 9:30 and was at Boston Common by about 9:45. Found a shady spot on Tremont St that was initially not too crowded and waited for the parade. Was accompanied by my 16 year old daughter. She has been to a bunch of Celtics games with me over the years and was a good companion. The trip home was considerably longer as the lines at South Station were really long and we missed our train as a result. If I were to do it again I would have made an entire day of it in Boston but I was playing hooky and felt like I needed to get back home to at least pretend to put in a partial day.

Panthers doing theirs on the beach, or at least A1A. Maybe we should have used Carson Beach, starting at JFK Library and ending at Castle Island? (or Revere or Quincy Shore?)
