Last week was unlike any other in Boston with the Monday bombings at the Marathon, the identification of the suspects and the Friday city wide lockdown that ended with the killing of one suspect and the apprehension of the other.
The lockdown forced the Red Sox home game with Kansas City Friday to be postponed, so when the teams played Saturday, emotions ran high.
In a moving and lengthy pre-game ceremony, the Red Sox remembered the victims of the bombing and honored law enforcement officers and the heros that emerged. The tribute ended with slugger David Ortiz speaking to the crowd and using one of the seven words not allowed on television. The crowd loved it and the FCC has already given Ortiz a pass saying he was 'speaking from the heart.'
If you missed it, the ceremony is posted below. Also included is the video tribute to the Marthon victims and heros which was shown inside Fenway Park as well as the Boston Strong charity video, produced to raise funds for the victims.
