Parade, but no rally for Sox

This is too bad, but it's the right decision.

On Saturday there will be a parade for the Sox, but, unlike for the Patriots' two recent Superbowl wins, there will be no mass rally.

I went to the Pats' rally last winter on City Hall Plaza, and it was a frightening mob scene. The Plaza was not big enough for that crowd. And, with all due respect to the Pats, the Redsox would draw a bigger crowd, much bigger. There is no public space in Boston that could safely accommodate all the people that would want to attend.
