New England Patriots fans pack Boston streets for victory parade (Reuters)

By Scott Malone and Ted Siefer BOSTON (Reuters) – Tens of thousands of New England Patriots fans bundled up in coats and red-white-and-blue knit caps bearing the team’s logo defied a driving snowstorm in Boston on Tuesday to celebrate their team’s latest Super Bowl victory. The team, celebrating its fifth National Football League championship since 2002, was due to parade through the city in a fleet of amphibious vehicles. Boston has ratcheted up security at public events since the deadly 2013 bombing attack on the Boston Marathon.
