N.H. Reacts to Red Sox World Series Win

Oct 31, 2013

It was 1918 when the Red Sox last did it.   And they did it again last night, winning the World Series in front of a hometown crowd, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1.  Here in New Hampshire, the reaction was swift and loud, as Sean Hurley reports. 

Jeff Chapel from Thornton watches the game at his hometown bar, the Woodpecker Pub. It's only the 6th inning, but he's ready for his World Series pilgrimage.

As soon as I get done with this popcorn, I'm heading to Boston.  But that's my team, it's like I've been back there the two last World Series when they won it so I'm gonna be back there tonight when they win it again, right to Fenway Park.

John Scott who works and relaxes at the Lucky Dog in Plymouth says he'd be driving to Fenway tonight too if he didn't have to work so early in the morning.

We're all just as freaks as they are in Boston.  Why do you have to live in Boston to be an idiot fan?

The patrons at the Lucky Dog explode with the Red Sox World Series win.  But outside, just a few hundred yards away, there's an even bigger eruption as hundreds of students at Plymouth State University exit their dorms and crowd together into a huge makeshift parade that streams and screams across campus.

Proving John Scott's point as loudly as possible.  That you don't have to live in Boston to be a crazy Red Sox fan.
