When Brian Sr. and Sean came a little over an hour later, things had gotten out of control. Streets were closed off to even walkers and public transportation was just shy of a standstill. I am so glad I decided to leave with the early shift! Sean freaked out a bit from the crowds and had to be carried - I am so glad his Dad was there because I wouldn't have been able to carry him very far.
I was a little disappointed by the parade though - I thought there would be more than some police cars and a few trucks with players, coaches, and family on them. A few bands would have been nice! It was a great experience and I hope the boys are one day proud to say they were there!
