Boston Common’s ducklings don Red Sox jerseys, beards for World Series (photo)

Apparently, the bronze ducklings located in Boston Common have a rich and storied heritage. For not being real ducklings. Located between a pond and the entrance to Boston Common on Charles and Beacon streets, the ducklings are in homage to characters in the children’s book written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey, entitled, “Make Way for Ducklings”.

As you can see, the ducklings are ready for Game 1 of the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday at Fenway Park. Draped with Red Sox jerseys and adorned with the “playoff beards” currently sported by many Red Sox players, the bronze sculptures look certifiably quacktastic.

Yep, more attempts at bird-brained humor. Good thing Dwyane Wade doesn’t read the Sportress of Blogitude, as far as I know. He’s no fan of birds, apparently.
