If you haven't heard, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series on Wednesday night, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 at Fenway Park, then partied into the night with the rest of Boston.

So what happened the day after?

Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino, who had the big three-run double in the clinching victory, wasn't sure what to do on Thursday.

 

Big Papi, the World Series MVP, had a message for Red Sox Nation.

 

Wednesday's winning pitcher Jon Lester posted this (FYI: the parade is Saturday).

 

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia went with something short and sweet.

 

Instead of starting Game 7 for Boston on Thursday night, starting pitcher Jake Peavy, a trade-deadline addition, was able to enjoy the first day of the offseason and expressed his love for Beantown.

 

After Wednesday's clinching victory, Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster tossed batting practice for fun at 3 a.m. ET on Thursday.

One of the batters was Mike O'Malley, who plays Burt Hummel on FOX's 'Glee.'

 

Three hours later, Joe Scarborough hosted 'Morning Joe' from Fenway Park.

 

Thursday was Halloween, so why not dress up as the Green Monster?

 

Middlebrooks, the Red Sox third baseman, made sure to post a picture of the new 2013 banner outside Fenway Park.

 

Meanwhile, Kevin Millar, who won a ring with the Red Sox in 2004, tweeted a picture of his son in his Halloween costume.

 

Curt Schilling was a teammate of Millar's in '04 and also won a World Series with the Sox in '07.

 

Several New England Patriots had messages for the newly crowned baseball champs.

 

 

Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Matt Lauer of the 'Today Show' busted out beards.

 

Thursday night, Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino took the World Series trophy to TD Garden, where the Boston Bruins hosted the Anaheim Ducks. During a break in the second period, Lucchino and Bruins president and former player Cam Neely brought the Commissioner's Trophy out on the ice.

 

The Bruins trailed 1-0 before the visit, but they tied it about 4½ minutes later and eventually won 3-2 in a shootout.

Ballplayers from other teams were impressed with the Red Sox title. One was Cincinnati Reds Gold Glove second baseman Brandon Phillips.

 

Even on Capitol Hill, there was some Red Sox love. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney opened his Thursday news briefing in a Boston cap with a few comments about the new champions. (H/T to politico.com)

 

Then there's Wally, the team's mascot. He seems to be missing ... or maybe he's still out partying. Hopefully, he'll make it to the parade. If you see Wally, please tell him to call the ballpark and not to shave his beard.
