Bostonians once again have good reason to feel that their metropolis should rightly be called the City of Champions. Our Red Sox nearly swept the baseball playoffs, losing only once to our vaunted rival Yankees, once to the defending champion Houston Astros, and once to the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was the “Saux” fourth title in the young century, and the 11th pro title for Boston since 2001. As part of our “yearly” tradition, the Sox players, families, coaches, and officials were paraded in Duck boats from Landsdowne Street to just past City Hall. The Duck Boat parade has also been used to celebrate titles won by the Patriots and Bruins.
