The Boston sports scene got back on track after the suspects from the Boston Marathon bombing were captured Friday evening, and the Boston Red Sox started things off with a montage of the week's events set to Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah."
The montage included dramatic and emotional pictures from the week, which built up to putting an entire city on stand-by most of Friday as police searched Watertown, Mass., for the suspect of the bombing, later apprehending him. It started with images from the race, as men and women headed towards the finish line with fans watching on, and then went through the shocking events that unfolded.
Boston service men and women, who had been vigilant the past week in their search to apprehend the suspects and keep the city safe, as well as the victims of the attack, were honored on the field in a pre-game ceremony. It included police, fire fighters, and the whole lot of first responders who have been working hours on end since the tragic events on Monday took place.
You can't help but get a little dusty in honoring these service men and women.
Boston strong, indeed.
