Red Sox fans waited 86 years for a national championship. When it came in 2004, how did they celebrate? A parade, of course — with a “rolling rally” of Duck Tour vehicles down Boylston Street.
Celtics fans’ wait was shorter — 22 years. Last year, it was their turn to fill the streets and cheer.
The Terriers ended their own national championship drought on Saturday night with a 4-3 victory over Miami University of Ohio, capping off a great season with BU’s first NCAA title since 1995. Now it’s time for what Kenneth Elmore, the dean of students, calls a “traffic-stopping, jaw-dropping” celebration of the BU men’s hockey team.
Boston University’s own Duck Tour parade will start in Kenmore Square at noon on Tuesday and roll up Commonwealth Avenue. When the parade hits Marsh Plaza, the party kicks off with cake and ice cream, plus speeches from the players and a few glimpses of that much-coveted NCAA trophy. Go BU!
