It is official.  Mayor Menino announced today that the Red Sox "Rolling Rally" will kick off Saturday morning at 10am from Fenway Park's warning track and head down Boylston Street.  The mayor said the duck boats will "take a dip in the Charles River, because we love that dirty water."

Larry Lucchino emphasized that the rolling rally will be a family event...and that is one of the reasons that Saturday was picked for the parade.

When the mayor was asked if he'd ride in one of the duck boats he said, "No.  I've never road in a duck...and I'll never ride in a duck."
