Boston Strong

Submitted by Xenoveritas on Thu, 05/02/2013 - 20:48

I meant to post this a while ago, but I wanted to post photos taken of Boston Common the Sunday following the marathon. Unfortunately they didn't come out (they're backlit, so you can't see any of the people in them).

But it was nice to see that the Common was packed with people and that Boston is getting back to normal after the bombing.

So apparently something happened in downtown Boston today. I live close to Boston, so I suppose I should mention it, but there's not much for me to say.

An amusing quote from the World Series:

"Here is Fuentes, trying to make amends for his outing last night, when he allowed three runs in a big eighth inning for the Red Sox. And Kielty comes off and hits one into left field for a home run!"

It's great. The announcer just keeps on talking, without skipping a beat, as the very first pitch Fuentes threw out turns into a home run.

Just a little bit of irony in the World Series.
