Sure, Boston has a lot of championship trophies to go around, but come on. 

As the Red Sox World Series championship parade was winding down Wednesday, a fan reportedly threw a beer towards the duck boat carrying the trophy. It struck the Commisioner's Trophy and slightly damaged it. 

And that wasn't the only incident involving beer projectiles during the parade. 

According to Boston police, 19-year-old Patrick Connolly of Sandwich, MA, was arrested after allegedly hitting Alex Cora with a can of beer. After the incident, Connolly reportedly told detectives, "I love Cora. I didn’t mean to hit him.”

Connolly was charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct, and was later arraigned in Boston Municipal Court.

Hundreds of thousands of fans lined the streets of Boston to celebrate on Halloween, as you can see here. A legendary season resulting in a World Series title ended in an almost equally unprecedented way.
