Along with the Boston Bruins, the Boston Celtics will not be playing their next game at the TD Garden after the bombing that took place at the Boston Marathon today. This game means nothing to either team as their places in the standings are already determined. After events such as these, professional sports take a back seat and everything gets put into perspective. It was best that this game not be played out of respect for the victims, but also for the safety of the fans and players as this situation is still fluid.
Living in Boston my whole life, this hits close to home. The city of Boston is known for it’s resilient sports teams and people, but for one day we’re all struck after this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and first responders who are also dealing with the event that unfolded today.
