Red Sox officials were in the Capitol, showing off their prize to members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation.
``We hope to make this an annual affair,'' Sen. Edward Kennedy joked.
Kennedy and Rep. Edward Markey joined a large crowd of congressional staffers and other Red Sox fans who lined up in a House hearing room to pose for photographs with the trophy. Many in the crowd wore Red Sox hats and shirts.
``A lot of things go on in this city, but this is really one of the highlights,'' Kennedy said.
Kennedy said he had been a Red Sox fan since he was 6 years old, when his grandfather took him to his first game.
Boston swept the Colorado Rockies to win the championship. In 2004, the Red Sox swept St. Louis to break their 86-year World Series drought.
Kennedy and Markey said they plan to send copies of a Senate resolution honoring Boston's victory to each player on the team.
