A Bruins fan wandered into Marty Walsh’s press conference — and Twitter loved it

The coronavirus outbreak may be able to bring public life to a standstill. But it can’t stop Boston from being Boston.

Midway through a press conference Wednesday afternoon on the city’s response to the pandemic, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was joined outside City Hall by several city councilors and staffers — and, for a fleeting few moments, a Bostonian who lit up social media.

“Iconic,” Medford City Councilor Zac Bears wrote, posting a clip of the Boston Bruins sweatshirt-wearing man who bemusedly wandered with a friend into the backdrop of Walsh’s live shot.
