Stoneham elementary school holds Sox pep rally
STONEHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -- Nearly 400 children aged 4-14 at St. Patrick's School in Stoneham are all revved up about the Red Sox. On Wednesday their teachers organized a huge pep rally at the school.
“This is awesome because these children don't know what it's like not to win a World Series. We know what the dry spells are like. They'll never know that in their lifetime, but they're very excited, right, guys,” said Linda Donovan, parent of four students.
Students have an idea who is going to win and who will star.
“I think David Ortiz will do really good,” said Peter Donovan, Loves Big Papi.
The kids did it all, even some Irish dancing to the Dropkick Murphys.
They also belted out a certain Neil Diamond tune, and did a whole lot of screaming, beards and all.
The principal at St. Patrick’s is excited for the Sox and excited for her students too.
“I’m an avid Red Sox fan, been a Sox fan since, oh my gosh, when I was little. I followed the Red Sox all the time,” said Louann Melino, principal.
