It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

A little light on the political and the trivial (if that’s not an oxymoron) today for obvious reasons:

Personally, my goal at the moment is to see “Sweet Caroline” sung before the bottom of the 8th inning at Yankee Stadium.

Thinking about whoever is behind the Boston Marathon bombings: We don’t know yet about race, creed, color or national origin. But would bet money on “male.”

Okay, this is cool. Some real winners in the race today: From NBC Sports Network: “Reports of Marathon Runners that crossed finish line and continued to run to Mass General Hospital to give blood to victims #PrayforBoston”

Americans do tend to treat each other better when bad things happen to us: Meaning that, at least for a short time, fans wearing Red Sox caps will never be safer in Yankee Stadium.

Open note to anyone who regularly uses a backpack: the next few weeks are going to be a really bad time to leave it on a chair or table while you stand in line for coffee or whatever.

Considering what he said about Anne Frank can we all hope that if Justin Bieber wants to comment on Boston that someone will tell him in advance to STFU?

How quickly things change. The most sports-related violence anyone expected tomorrow was potentially at the first Dodgers-Padres game after Carlos Quentin broke Zack Greinke’s collarbone.

 

Trivial sports comment of the day:  In Colorado, players from both the Mets and Rockies teams had planned to wear #42 in honor of Jackie Robinson. But the game was postponed, for snow. Responded SF Giants players and fans who remember Candlestick – “Wimps!”
