What is Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics’ connection to duckboat rides? Looking at the meaning behind the “Cue the duckboats” joke

While Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics are currently celebrating their NBA Championship win, there has been quite a bit of talk regarding the team taking duck boat rides. Although this may seem strange to fans outside of Boston, the reference is one with deep-seated traditions in Massachussets.

Back in 2002, when the NFL’s New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, the team celebrated by taking one of Boston’s famous duckboat rides rather than riding on a coach bus. The duckboats, which are amphibious vehicles dating back to World War 2, have been a major tourist attraction in the city for decades now.

Thanks to their unique capabilities that allow them to traverse both land and water, they have become a hit with tourists, with the duckboat ride tradition being adopted by Boston sports teams ever since.
