This was an obvious choice.
Last weeks bombing during the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured many others was a senseless crime done by senseless people. This is a story about more than sports. This is a story about life, a story about ourselves, and a story about helping others in their time of need.
The perpetrators have thankfully been caught, and an entire nation has stood with the city of Boston. The phrase “Boston Strong” has even been coined. Even rivals such as the New York Yankees have stood with the people of Boston. People such as Carmelo Anthony even spoke to the city and proclaimed their sympathy to the city.
My Heat hold a 1-0 series lead on the Bucks, but I will also be cheering for the Celtics to upset the Knicks (partially because I don’t want to play them in the Conference Finals). Root for Boston. Root for the Celtics, root for the Bruins, root for the Red Sox, root for the Revolution (MLS Team). This is a time where we set aside our sports differences and show that we care for the city.
The Red Sox are in 1st place in their division. Perhaps they can capture a World Series Title as well.
If any team from that city could win a championship it would probably be that one.
