BOSTON (AP) -Boston is going green.
Fans began gathering Thursday morning along the route of a ``rolling rally'' to celebrate the Boston Celtics' first championship in 22 years. Trains headed into the city were jammed, as was the Garden's souvenir shop in anticipation of the parade kickoff.
Forty-nine-year-old Tim Spencer of Peabody brought his 17-year-old son Derek to show him some of the same excitement he grew up with during the Larry Bird era in 1980s. They milled around dressed in Celtics shirts and new championship hats.
Sixteen World War II-era amphibious ``duck boats'' will carry the Celtics players, owners and staff. The team's dancers, former Celtics greats and championship trophies from previous years will ride on two flatbed trucks.
