I love this plaque in the Old North Church.
Visited the USS Constitution today. Oldest commissioned warship afloat in the US Navy.
Old State House, Boston. Royal Governor’s council and court chambers. Oldest public building in Boston (there are older churches and homes). Built 1713.
Big Papi was holding someones baby for a photo when the National Anthem started to play. So, he turned around and held the kid for the whole thing.
Just some randoms I have taken around the city this week.
Meb Keflezighi, the first American male to win the Boston Marathon since 1983.
Boston. Strong in 2014.
On my way to watch the Marathon. I cannot believe it has already been a year.
Of all the Super Bowls, NBA titles, World Series and Stanley Cups Boston has had, nothing will compare to today. This is the single most important event in Boston sports history. It is not the day we beat some other team. It is the day we show the bad guys how bad they lost.
RIP Officer Dennis O. Simmonds. Officer Simmonds passed away following a medical emergency during training at the Boston Police Academy this week. Next month he was slated to receive the nations Top Cop award at the White House for his actions during last years shoot out with the Boston Marathon Bombers. During the shootout Officer Simmonds suffered head injuries from an IED thrown at him by the terrorists.
It is sad that this city keeps having to lay heroes to rest.
