I've been gathering my thoughts about the various reactions to the Boston Marathon bombing over the past day or 2. I'll not go into what I think of the event, but rather I want to say a thing or 2 about the reactions from other cities.

I was born in Boston, in a hospital that is not more than a couple of miles from the site of the bombing, and I grew up in a town next door to the city. I went to college in Boston. I know the city well, and I know how very proud of our city and its traditions are we Bostonians. When I saw the videos of NY, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and other places doing something to show their understanding of the tragedy and its effects, I was touched. To all of you SpoFites who are in those places, and to all who took even a moment to say to yourself "too bad" I want say thanks. Some might think it's just a small gesture, but it means a great deal to many of us. We know we are not alone. The theme around town now is "Boston Strong", but the strength of any community is bolstered by the thoughts and prayers of others.

The event is something that transcends sports, but it is through sports and the rivalries that are present that respect and solidarity are generated. Once more from this sports fan, Thank you.

The greatest un-rilvary rivalry in MLS.
