Hundreds of Boston University students, and Red Sox fans, crowded the Marsh Plaza along Commonwealth Avenue on Tuesday afternoon to try and scoop up tickets to the World Series at Fenway Park, and possibly get their face on television.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres dropped hints all day on Twitter, offering up some seats to one of the games between the Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals, and told attendees to show up at the plaza dressed as Green Monsters donning red socks.

Excited sports revelers wasted no time getting decked out from head-to-toe in green costumes, with some even going as far as slapping green paint on their skin, or creating giant signs to try and get the attention of DeGeneres.

As they patiently waited for the show to begin taping, people started chanting “Let’s Go Red Sox,” and two people pulled out guitars and got the crowd singing along to the lyrics of “Sweet Caroline.”

Here are some photos from the scene outside of Boston University, as Red Sox fans cheered, and tried to score seats to one of the games this week:
