Boston Sports Are Wicked Cool!



Boston Strong

Yes we are!

I'm still processing everything that happened yesterday.  Until then here are some of my favorite moments from this past week!  I know Boston fans often brag about our teams. . . here is why!





Fenway Park pays tribute to the resilience of Boston and its people in a montage set to Jeff Buckley's rendition of "Hallelujah."  It is 5 minutes long but totally worth watching.  I LOVE this song - one of my favorites.



The Red Sox are a class act.  What an incredible ceremony at today's game.  I wish I had been there.  Here is a moment of silence, the ceremonial first pitch, all of Fenway Park singing the National Anthem and a special message (F bomb included) from David Ortiz!


Neil Diamond surprised the team and the fans by showing up to sing "Sweet Caroline" in person.  This is a Fenway tradition and I think it was very cool of him to come to Boston!







The Bruins are pretty cool too.  Wednesday night the crowd spontaneously starting singing along to the National Anthem at the start of the game.  Most of you have probably seen this by not but if not it is really worth watching.  This makes me proud to be a Bostonian.

Two questions:

Will I ever be able to listen to the National Anthem again without crying?

Who sings it better - Red Sox fans or Bruins fans?

  1. For the record, I tear up every time I hear the National Anthem, but yeah, it's gonna be a long time before none of us cry.

    I was watching the Red Sox game on Saturday on MLB Network. There WAS crying in baseball that day. And what a class act for Neil Diamond to show up unannounced like that! Super cool!!
