Jake Peavy so enjoyed riding around in a six-wheel-drive amphibious truck at Saturday’s Red Sox World Series championship parade that he went ahead and purchased the thing. No, seriously … So @JakePeavy_44 is fired up because he bought this boat. Yup, the whole thing. This is our Ducking City! http://t.co/EQqhwpiDcE — Boston Red Sox (@RedSox)…
