First of all, I would like to say congratulations, to the 2013 World Series Champions Boston Red sox, for a season of great enjoyment, by a team first mentality and a never quit attitude, there is a lesson there, not just in sports, but in life as well.
I myself and maybe other’s in my generation, around the Boston area, have been fortunate enough to witness twelve Championships, three each by all the four major sports teams in Boston, the Boston Bruins, the New England Patriots, the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Celtics.
This day and age of free agency in sports, this is a hard accomplishment to get to, but none the less I am lucky to witness twelve of them and each one just gets better all the time, with each one special in their own way, with that said, this championship of the Red Sox, I would say is the most special, in the event of the tradgedy of the marathon, with the new slogan of #bostonstrong this team really took it apon itself, to show just what this slogan really means and that is, the unification of a City, showing that you may knock us down, but you will never stop us from moving forward.
We in this region of the United States, have been blessed and spoiled in the last ten years, with all these great teams that have given this City of Boston all of it’s championships, when other regions can’t even get to the dance sort of speak, plus having all four teams of their sport and the fact that some may be in a rebuild stage, their is always one of them putting on a show for the great true Boston sport fan and after a tradgedy that the City went through, we had the Bruins going to the Stanley Cup Finals and the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series, this not only gave us a great show, but also helped heal from the pain as we moved forward, in our lives.
We are very lucky in this region, to have great teams in all four major sports and showing that sports is alot more then the stupid betting and negativity that surrounds it, let’s learn the from these teams and bring a no quit attitude to our lives and move forward stronger and better than ever, #bostonstrong to all.
