From bombs to beards, the worst-to-first finish by the Boston Red Sox this past baseball season was filled with its fair share of interesting stories. So, it was fitting that, following their World Series triumph, pitcher Jake Peavy capped the "Rolling Rally" by buying the Duck Boat he and Jon Lester rode down the streets of BeanTown. And now..."Charlie River" has made its way to Peavy's home in Alabama.
