When two bombs go off right next to your wife’s office building near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, many questions fly through your mind. However, one of them is not “Who’s batting clean-up for the Yanks tonight?” When pictures surface of two men suspected of terrorism in Boston, your first thought is not “I hope Derek Jeter’s ankle heals faster than expected.” When one suspect is killed and the other is caught in a neighboring town, you breathe a sigh of relief and completely forget about baseball.
It’s been a tough week for us in Boston, but it looks like we can at least start thinking about returning to normal. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone around the world for all of your thoughts and prayers during this extreme situation. The city of Boston greatly appreciated the classy move of the New York Yankees—who would have thought that you would ever hear “Sweet Caroline” at the Stadium?? I was proud to be a Yankee fan AND a Boston resident at the same time! And that seldom happens! Hopefully, in the next few days, I can open up a newspaper and turn to the Sports section first, instead of scanning the front page with baited breath.
It gets late early out there.
Again, thanks for the support,
