The Boston Red Sox are World Series champions!
The bearded bunch bested the St. Louis Cardinals, taking the best-of-seven series in six games on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at Fenway Park. This is Boston's third title in ten years; they won in 2004 (after an 86-year drought but who is counting) and 2007.
Celebrity fans, as well as lovers of the game of baseball, flocked to Twitter to express their excitement after the team's big accomplishment. Here is a sampling of some of the enthusiastic messages:
Donnie Wahlberg: In the worst of times, we made the best of times! Words true as ever! So proud of our city, our team & our resilient people! !
Bryan Greenberg: Congrats Boston. I'm ok with my @Cardinals getting to the World Series 4 times in 10 years. Heads high
And some Red Sox players shared their feelings as well:
Pitcher Jon Lester: Hard to put everything I'm feeling into 140 characters. First and foremost, to all the Marathon victims, this ones for you!
Second baseman Dustin Pedroia: We did it !!!!!
Outfielder Shane Victorino: As the great @bobmarley would say... "Don't worry about a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"
