That picture of the 8 year old boy running just ripped at your heart. So much life and its all been stolen from him and his family. Just brutal.
We give these guys a bunch of grief when it's about football. And they certainly give us a bunch of grief. But to our resident Pats fans (or any other members from that area) - please check in and let us know your family and friends are all safe.
Better question is, where was Stevie Johnson yesterday?
Thanks for the caring thread!!!!!
waking up to a very different city today.
Can't say enough about the Boston Police, first responders, and doctors and nurses.
Fighting the urge to give up on humanity. People who volunteered to tend to running injuries in the medical tent instead trying to save lives due to lost limbs.
One quick story...nurse who was crossing the finish line...immediately ran to her hospital's ER...amazing.
No wise cracks today.
Yes, good thought Doggin, shocking news from Boston yesterday ... I hope all the Pats fans who contribute to this forum were far from harm's way yesterday.
God Bless those affected by yesterday's attack. I hope our locals are all safe and sound.

Joe Andruzzi, who won three Super Bowl rings with the Patriots during five seasons, attended Monday’s race to support runners raising money for his foundation supporting cancer research, NFL.com reports. Andruzzi, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2007, sprang into action following the bombings and appeared in a viral photograph on Twitter carrying a victim to safety.
“Jen and I are safe,” Andruzzi posted on Twitter on Monday, reassuring people who were concerned for him and his wife. “Thanks for all the tweets.”
Andruzzi later thanked emergency personnel in a subsequent message and released a statement thanking “countless individuals” who responded to bloodied and frightened marathon participants and their supporters.
“Marathon Monday should be about uplifting stories, personal challenges and fundraising milestones, but today’s bombings irrevocably change that,” Andruzzi said in a statement obtained by NFL.com. “While I appreciate the interest in hearing our perspective on today’s horrific events, the spotlight should remain firmly on the countless individuals — first responders, medics, EMTs, runners who crossed the finish line and kept on running straight to give blood, and the countless civilians who did whatever they could to save lives. They were the true heroes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this senseless tragedy.”
Andruzzi, who played 122 games during his nine-year career, retired in 2006 after two seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
Just awful all around especially the little boy. The pictures floating around are disgusting on the internet.
The boy who died was waiting at the finish line with his family to watch his father finish the race. http://www.dnaindia.com/world/182307...artin-richards
God bless the victims and first responders.

Disgusting video online now...*******s looting a marathon t shirt stand.
They are going to feel real proud every time they put on that t-shirt.
Latest on investigation....apartment raided in Revere, MA last night, bags of evidence taken.
Sorry for the false picture. Can't trust anything on the Internet these days.
BTW, I get the feeling this one is going to be a domestic nut job. As stated, a Revere apartment (Revere is just north of Boston) was raided.
