Boston Fans Take Over The National Anthem

By: Sara

Since Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, several Major League Baseball stadiums have been showing their support by playing Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” leading into the bottom of the eighth inning. But there was a truly touching moment Wednesday night when the Boston Bruins played their first game since the tragedy. A blue and yellow ribbon lit up the ice in honor of the victims, and the Boston Fire Department Honor Guard came out to represent the city’s first responders. Once the National Anthem started, the crowd sang their hearts out and Rene Rancourt (the longtime Bruins anthem singer) lowered his mic and let the people of Boston finish the song together.
