The Other Paper:
A gang of Boston thugs celebrated the Red Sox World Series victory by sucker punching and ganging up on each other during wild brawl that turned a joyous parade sideline into shameful crime scene.
A violent and graphic video first posted by Barstool Sports shows a fistfight after Saturday’s Red Sox parade turn into an all-out melee with the bodies of unconscious men sprawled across the pavement.
“There was at least one large brawl, and it may have broken off into two or more smaller brawls,” Suffolk County District Attorney spokesman Jake Wark told the N.Y. Daily News.
The violent and graphic video begins with two men fighting in front of a cheering crowd and quickly devolves into an unending round of cheap shots.
Combatants triple and quadruple team single fighters. They pummel and kick people who are down. A goon in a red T-shirt drags a flattened brawler toward the edge of the road, raises his foot up high and brutally slams it down on the man’s head.
“He just got curb stomped, dude,” says one of the video’s giggling narrators.
The camera shows at least four men laid out on the sidewalk. At least two appear to be out cold.
“This kid’s dead,” says one of the men behind the camera. “This kid’s dead.”
He wasn’t, according to a police report, but two people were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.
Wark identified the cheapshot artist as Liame Browne, a 23-year-old from West Roxbury. He and Kieran Boyle, 21, of Dedham face assault and battery charges.
Officers arrested Browne and Boyle at the scene, and they’re working to identify other brawlers. Wark said they’re reviewing surveillance footage from nearby businesses and speaking with witnesses.
Browne and Boyle were arraigned on Monday. Boyle’s father told CBS Boston witnesses had misidentified his son.
“Three people pointed out Kieran as the one kicking this kid in the head, and he didn’t kick anybody,” Kevin Boyle said. “He wasn’t even in the fight.”
Boyle’s friend, Michael Zarther, told the station he was the one who started the fight outside Coogan’s bar.
“He was talking smack about one of my friends, and kind of just got me angry, so I went and hit him,” Zarther said. “It started a huge, big misunderstanding.”

Not to be outdone by David Ortiz hitting the Letterman and Regis shows (is it even called Regis anymore? I have no idea), Jonny Gomes and Shane Victorino were on Conan tonight on TBS. Topics included the rolling rally, Peavy’s duck boat purchase and visiting the Marathon finish line. In case you missed it, here are some highlights:
Oh, and then Artie Lange showed up. And topics...
New England Aquarium:
Reggae, an Atlantic harbor seal at the New England Aquarium, knows how to celebrate a World Series win. Just look, he gives a fantastic high five!
2013 Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew and his family stopped by the Aquarium Monday afternoon to get a high-five from Reggae, a male harbor seal. Drew and his family had been regulars at the Aquarium much of this...
Joel Hanrahan is in the same boat as Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. He’s a World Series champion, and he’s currently a free agent. But Hanrahan’s 2013 season wasn’t quite as glorious as the campaigns enjoyed by his Boston brethren.
Hanrahan was acquired last offseason in a trade with the Pirates. He was slated to be the Red Sox’ closer...
This is his *bleeping* city.
Even though he wasn’t in the running David Ortiz managed to almost ‘steal’ the mayoral seat in Boston.
Candidates Marty Walsh and John Connolly were the ones in the race, but it was David Ortiz who got the most write-in votes, which technically puts him in 3rd place.
In case you’re wondering how many votes Ortiz got, it was just 560–while...
(USA TODAY Sports)Here's an unexpected twist: the Red Sox are actively pursuing 38-year old veteran righty Tim Hudson. Hudson (who made $9 million in 2013) went 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA, before suffering a broken ankle in July. The Braves did not make a qualifying offer to Hudson. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, a source said of The Carmine Hose, "They really want him...
Dan Shaughnessy, ultimate know-it-all, troller and Boston Globe columnist, had made up his mind about the Red Sox back in February, and his prediction was less than flattering. In an article entitled "It's hard to get excited about these Red Sox," Shaughnessy wrote this before the season began. He's truly an oracle when it comes to this whole prediction business...
Dustin Pedroia may have complicated his offseason by playing on a thumb injury all year. But as the Red Sox second baseman awaits surgery and weeks of recovery time, he says there are no regrets, with the gamble he took paying off exactly as he had hoped.
“It was a grind some days, but my teammates were great at picking me up just at the right time,” he said of the torn ligament...
Dustin Pedroia, being the dirt dog that he is, played through the entire 2013 season with an injured thumb that he hurt during the very first game. We've known for a while that he was likely to have surgery on it after the season, and he's officially scheduled to go under the knife on Nov. 12.
What is a little worrisome is that following an MRI today, Pedey said the...
David Ortiz continued his World Series MVP Media Tour with an appearance in New York on the LIVE With Kelly & Michael show—schmoozing with hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. With the World Series trophy in tow, Papi gave credit to manager John Farrell for the success of the team—and also paid homage to the events of last April. But his best comment might have been his...
It’s safe to say that Jacoby Ellsbury did what he needed to do in 2013. Ellsbury not only helped the Red Sox win a World Series, but he also increased his value just before hitting the open market.
Ellsbury put together a very solid 2013 campaign, and his success carried over into the postseason. While the Red Sox’ offense struggled at times during the playoffs, Ellsbury hit...
The Boston Red Sox 2013 World Series victory tour has brought the team through the streets of Boston on duck boats, to the gridiron of Gillette Stadium, the set of David Letterman and now a visit to TV's biggest Sox fan Boston's own Conan O'Brien.
Outfielder's Shane Victorino and Jonny Gomes appeared on Conan Tuesday night and talked...
Living in China didn't stop this Boston Red Sox fan from celebrating his team's World Series victory in true Gamedayr fashion.
We have a pair of happy Boston Red Sox fans hosting this week’s Sports Media Weekly program. Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are joined for our news segment this week by Richard Sandomir of the New York Times. We lead-off the show with a final look back at the World Series and Fox’ claim of
(AP Photo)According to a report by The New York Post's George A. King III, the Red Sox are aggressively going after free-agent Carlos Beltran. With the expected loss of Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston would significantly back-fill their batting order by inserting the 8-time All-Star. Beltran is a legendary post-season hitter and—even with bruised ribs—hit .294 in the 2013 World Series...

It's been a week now and I'm still in a daze from the events of last Wednesday night. The night that our beloved Boston Red Sox won The World Series and became, what we all knew they were, champions.
Blame it on the many beers I consumed or the bursting excitement, but I only remember...
