I’ve been a Boston sports fan my entire life. I adore that city. If you’ve known me for any length of time you’ve probably seen me in a Bruins shirt or Red Sox hat on numerous occasions (most likely daily). Todays attire was a no brainer, I threw on a Boston Bruins t-shirt and went out to grab a sandwich at the corner store. While passing a group of guys, one of them leans towards me and says, “I’m sorry for Boston”. He caught me off guard, so I kind of mumbled, “oh, thank you”. As I walked into the store I got kind of annoyed at the interaction with that guy. I understand his sentiment and know what he was trying to say, but thinking about it made me angry. It was the equivalent of seeing a guy in a Yankees shirt on September 11, 2001 and saying, “i’m sorry for New York”. Don’t be sorry for Boston, be sorry for PEOPLE, be angry for PEOPLE. I’m not normally one to speak up and make statements, but we’re all in this together. I know that wearing a shirt that says Boston isn’t really helping, but i’m just trying to show that it’s is on my mind.
