The Boston Red Sox won the World Series and most of us watched at home from our televisions. Now thanks to Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino and GoPro we can watch the whole experience through his perspective.
The video starts with Victorino watching the final pitch from the dugout at Fenway Park and running out after the final out. It includes spraying champagne everywhere in the locker room, and they use a lot of champagne.
It also includes the celebratory parade and shows the team reaching the Boston Marathon finish line.
Victorino had a big game and tried to avoid the media to celebrate quietly.
From the Boston Globe:
“I’m going to do it all later,” he said, when a small media contingent first asked him to talk around 11:50 p.m. “I’m sorry, guys, sorry . . . I am just going to enjoy the moment.’’
“I’ll do it later, but not now,’’ Victorino said again to a reporter at 12:15 a.m., repeating a refrain he began when the media first took the field more than a half-hour earlier. “Not sure where . . . up there [in the interview room] . . . or maybe by my locker. But not now.’’
That also probably would’ve been less exciting on the video.
