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.
