The Yankees just advised us that they will have a moment of silence today in honor of the Boston firefighters killed last night. We normally would not show the anthem but will do so now.

It was nicely done......they showed the 2 firefighters picture on the Diamondvision while 96 year old Bob Sheppard made the announcement.

Then for the anthem they simply played a recording of the Marine Band.....instead of the American Idol of the day.

As much as I hate this place it is still the best baseball venue. I hope the new park next door will feel the same.

Thank you Yankees. My Dad was a fireman in Bridgeport and we always worried. This Boston fire looks like a simple fire that went horribly wrong. RIP

This photo from the Boston Herald has Pulitzer written all over it. The look on that firefighters wife is stunning.

I agree. This is priceless.

Everybody here is talking about this picture. I can't imagine the fear that goes into a fireman's family everytime the bell rings.

Every TV station in town is running the picture.

That picture made me cry. :whiner:

As I noted my Dad was a Chicago firefighter for 30 years ( 1958-88). He still has nightmares 50 years later of one of the first fires he ever worked that happened before I was born.

A Catholic school burnt down in Humbolt Park and close to 100 young children died many still at their desks.

My Mom says he has never been the same since that day.

This is a reference to the Our Lady of the Angels fire on 12/1/1958 which claimed 92 children and 3 nuns. It was one of the worst tragedies in Chicago history.
