Last night, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series for the eighth time and first time since 2007. But the win couldn’t have come at a better time, just seven months after the tragic Boston Marathon bombings. In fact, thousands of fans poured out of Fenway Park and rushed to the finish line of the marathon to pay tribute to those whose lives were taken on April 15.
Celebrities were no different as the tone of the night was a feeling of unity and appreciation that if their team didn’t win, there was no one more deserving of the title of World Champions than the Red Sox. Twitter erupted as ‘NSYNC, Katie Couric, Rachel Ray and Boston’s own Donnie Wahlberg voiced their utter joy for the Red Sox Nation and #BostonStrong. Here are some of the best Celeb tweets:
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! #BostonStrong!
