Red Sox parade: The duck boats have beards and they’re towing Dropkick Murphys

In the now famous words of Boston Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes: Cue the duck boats!

It's championship parade time in Boston, and the Red Sox are taking their "rolling rally" through the city on these fancy, properly decorated vehicles.

Yes, even the duck boats have beards. Did you expect anything less for the biggest party in Red Sox history? Of course not.

And apparently, like the Red Sox players, these duck boats can come through in any situation. In fact, they just rescued the Dropkick Murphys truck from getting stuck in the mud at Fenway Park.

Duck boat to the rescue!

Now they're officially ready to rock and roll in Beantown.
