The Super Bowl trophy is back in New England and on display!!
The New England Patriots and a million fans celebrated the team’s sixth Super Bowl championship with a parade through the streets of Boston.
The Pats clinched their sixth championship after a 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl 53. The streets of Boston were filled Tuesday morning with fans watching their favorite players ride the duck boats with the Lombardi Trophy in their hands yet again.
“I’m lucky to have grown up in New England, born a Pats fan,” said Derek Destefano of Meriden, CT. “I’ve gotten to see some of the greatest achievements in sports history with the pats doing what they done I’m just a lucky fan.”
Tuesday’s duck boat parade was the city’s second in less than 100 days. The Red Sox cued the duck boats in their World Series Championship parade in November after they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers.
For some cities, winning a championship is a goal but in New England, it’s an expectation.
“Never gets old as a Boston fan keep them rolling all four seasons beat LA, every one of them,” said Alex Cunniff of Rhode Island.
The Big Game victory marks the city’s 12th major sports championship since 2001. That was also the year the Patriots began their dynasty, and 18 years later the celebration continues in New England.
“It’s the perfection aspect of it they want to get everything perfect every time, so that’s why they draw a lot of fans,” said Justin Smith of New Jersey.
Almost two decades of winning and trying hard and you have two common factors and that’s Bill and Tom.
