Amidst an incredibly challenging week for obvious reasons, the Red Sox responded about as well as anyone could have hoped for, going 6-0 on the week before dropping both games in the day/night doubleheader Sunday against the Royals. More importantly, they gave Bostonians something to smile about again.


The Red Sox had a challenging week?
How many Bostonions were negatively effected by the Marathon Bombings? Were all of the people effected Red Sox fans? I'm pretty sure at least one person who was killed was not even from the country.

This shit fucking burns me up.


Probably a sign that you shouldn't get your news on terrorist attacks from ESPN.

Heed it no mind. It's just sappy stuff to which many react positively, which helps their ratings/webpage visits. At least it isn't anything negative. <shrugs>

Don't you know that if you even do a stop-over at Logan you instantly become a Red Sox fan?

(i.e. Logan is the Airport in Boston)

It's pretty clear at this point these guys were Islamic Jihadist Terrorists.

Whether you want to consider them Domestic or International is debatable...
but the cause definitely appears to be Religious Extremism.

wow, right wing terrorists huh? And to think even to this day, the people who voted that way are STILL on the edge of their seats waiting for something that can actually be blamed on right wingers. It's funny to me, that even though it turned out right wingers were not to blame, it probably still remains true to the haters they still think of the right wing the exact same way as if they had actually planned and carried out the marathon attacks. to I guess they want to be able to finally tellz themselves 'See! I was right all along! We were right all along! The fact the last 27 terrorizmz in a row were not right wing related at all and many were left wing related and most were Islamist terrorism was just a statistical anomaly. See, I was right all along, those darn right wingers!'
