Boston Red Sox Victory Parade

BOSTON (AP) -- A victory tour today for the World Champion Boston Red Sox on the duck boats usually enjoyed by Boston tourists.

Tens of thousands of fans line the streets from Fenway Park to City Hall, cheering Boston's second World Series title in four years.

Harvard student Mark Rinaldi says he was there for the 2004 parade and never thought he'd be able to do it again in his lifetime. He says "to do it twice is pretty incredible."

Most of the Red Sox players and manager Terry Francona are wearing bright red hooded championship sweatshirts. First baseman Kevin Youkilis is out in the 60-degree weather in a T-shirt that says "We did it AGAIN."

Closer Jonathan Papelbon is on a duck boat with a local Irish-American band, the Dropkick Murphys. He's doing his famous Irish jig to the tune of "I'm Shipping Up to Boston."
