Despite Matt's loyalty to New York sports, both he and Savannah received a warm welcome upon their arrival in Beantown Friday morning. The anchors are broadcasting live from Boston's Faneuil Hall, and everyone from the mayor to the Boston Celtics cheerleaders were there to welcome them. Using the hashtag #TODAYinBoston, Bostonians took to the Twitterverse to welcome TODAY to their town.
