The game ended and the party started in NH
Bedford resident Meghan Dionne, a student at Syracuse University, flew home to attend Wednesday night's Red Sox home game with her father, Tony.
Brothers Caleb Alberghene, 10, and Josiah Alberghene, 12, modeled their new World Series Champs hats inside Dick's Sporting Goods in Nashua Thursday afternoon. The boys, who were shopping with their mother, Jennifer, boasted they'd watched "almost all of the games" this season. APRIL GUILMET

Her father, Tony, had a pair of tickets for Wednesday night's World Series Game 6 at Fenway Park.
"It was absolutely perfect," Tony Dionne said. "To share this with my daughter — it doesn't get better than that."
"Everyone was asking each other, 'Who's going to the parade now?" Tetreau said. "Looks like it'll pretty much be a family reunion."
In Pelham, police officers sported some impressive beards in homage to the Red Sox — until Wednesday night's victory.
Chief Joseph Roark said an exception was made when a couple officers approached him asking his permission to temporarily bend the rules on facial hair. Sixteen officers, as well as Roark, put away their razors for a few days, donating more than $1,200 to the town's Good Neighbors Fund, which helps locals pay grocery and utility bills.
Typically, hats are a no-no inside the school, but just for Thursday, rules were meant to be broken.
In Nashua, loyal fans of all ages flooded Dick's Sporting Goods, where employees decked out in team apparel scrambled to restock shelves as customers filled carts with "Red Sox World Series Champion" T-shirts, caps, pennants, toys and jackets.
They sported matching Red Sox caps as they picked out some new T-shirts for their grandchildren.
The Slosbergs, who now live in upstate New York but were visiting relatives in nearby Groton, Mass. Thursday, said they've always been dedicated fans.
