Thursday night, Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino took the World Series trophy to TD Garden, where the Boston Bruins hosted the Anaheim Ducks. During a break in the second period, Lucchino and Bruins president and former player Cam Neely brought the Commissioner's Trophy out on the ice.
The Bruins trailed 1-0 before the visit, but they tied it about 4½ minutes later and eventually won 3-2 in a shootout.
Ballplayers from other teams were impressed with the Red Sox title. One was Cincinnati Reds Gold Glove second baseman Brandon Phillips.
Even on Capitol Hill, there was some Red Sox love. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney opened his Thursday news briefing in a Boston cap with a few comments about the new champions. (H/T to politico.com)
Then there's Wally, the team's mascot. He seems to be missing ... or maybe he's still out partying. Hopefully, he'll make it to the parade. If you see Wally, please tell him to call the ballpark and not to shave his beard.
