The State House was adorned with a huge Boston Bruins banner, cheering on the city’s sport’s team of the moment (battling Vancouver for the Stanley Cup tonight at The Garden). But let’s face it, flying a banner is a very usual way of showing allegiance to the home team. However, only in the Boston Public Garden could we possibly see McCloskey’s ducklings, Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack draped with black and gold capes with a hockey player’s number on the back. What a photo op. Oh, but that isn’t all. Facing Commonwealth Avenue at the entrance to the Public Garden, adorned with a Bruins’ cape and its own Number 1, stood George Washington, mounted on his steed, ready to forge toward the goal.
Alone, or with a friend, enjoyable either way.
