BOSTON–Snowflakes, raindrops and sticky confetti didn’t dampen the mood at Boston’s Super Bowl parade for the New England Patriots.
Tens of thousands of people clad in New England garb are lining the streets of Boston for a snowy parade celebrating the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl victory.
Owner Robert Kraft, MVP quarterback Tom Brady, backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo and other players leaned over the sides of World War II-era amphibious duck boats to wave at a wildly cheering crowd of several hundred thousand fans.
Players are waving some of the five Lombardi trophies the Patriots have won — the latest on Sunday after a dramatic 34-28 comeback win in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons.
Super Bowl MVP quarterback Tom Brady and his teammates took turns hoisting the Lombardi Trophy to the roars of adoring Patriots fans.
Several players were aboard the World War II-era amphibious duck boats carrying the team through downtown and waved the black “Roger That” T-shirts bearing the likeness of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Goodell handed Brady a four-game suspension at the start of the 2016 season for his role in the “Deflategate” scandal.
