'My Kids Are Watching!' Parents Upset By R-Rated Red Sox Celebration

NEW YORK (CBS) – The champagne was flowing, the corks were flying, and some F-bombs were dropped.

NESN aired the Red Sox locker room celebration unfiltered after Boston clinched the AL East in strange fashion Wednesday night.

And parents who let their little Sox fans stay up for the occasion found themselves needing to cover their kids' ears as some players let the expletives fly.

Some took to Twitter to blast NESN for not censoring the salty language.

NESN hasn't replied to any of the angry viewers yet, but it will be interesting to see if they deploy the "bleep" button if there are future celebrations in store for the Red Sox this season.
