Boston Marathon

Three pieces on the tragedy at Monday’s Boston Marathon:

The victims: We are praying for you. What a horrible scene, in an event meant to be fun and a celebration. People killed, people losing their limbs. May God be with you.

The responders: What courage it is to be in a situation of total chaos and be able to render aid to complete strangers. It’s a different kind of person who runs towards trouble versus running away from it! Boston is, above all else, a family city. The responders…and not just the uniformed persons…reacted like family.

The responsible party: We’re going to enjoy taking your freedom away from you. Don’t coward up and off yourself, but unfortunately you’ll probably do it yourself. Then again, the sooner you end it the better.

I’ve decided in two years, I’m going to run in the Boston Marathon. Wouldn’t be my first.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
