Dogfacedgod: Am I the only one sickened by this overly "we shall overcome/we're with youuuuu" nonsense?.

No.  When I saw that picture of the "NY hearts Boston" (or whatever) projected onto the building in NYC, my first thought was "Wow.  Does it really have to be all about you, New York?"  Send cops, send resources, send aid.  Platitudes on the sides of buildings doesn't help.

soopey: "Boston" songs we'll gladly let other cities keep:
1. Sweet Caroline
1A. Tessy
2. Dirty Water
3. Shipping up to Boston
4. More Than a Feeling

We might as well create a list of relatively under-appreciated "Boston" songs that wouldn't make me sick to my stomach if played anywhere.

Fine, I'll start.

DrBear: Hey, give the Brewers credit for something different - they played the theme from Cheers and had a singalong.

Much better idea and more appropriate song.

sarajlewis83: Should a terrorist attack ever befall the city of Detroit , you'll all be hearing "Don't Stop Believing" at sporting events like it's 2007 all over again.

You mean if Windsor, Canada is ever attacked.

I'd pick Beastie Boys "Paul Revere" and have the entire Red Sox line use wiffle ball bats for the game.

I'm okay with it to the point that people actually doing productive things to help people (helping cover costs and additional incurred expenses for runners and residents; donating blood) and encouraging others to do the same is great. But weird things like the Chicago sports section claiming they're Chicago Red Sox, Chicago Celtics, Chicago Bruins, etc...that's REALLY stretching in order to send condolences. And just like people weren't rooting for the Yankees just because 9/11 happened, no, we're not rooting for any of the Boston teams because this happened.

It becomes another one of those things where people compete to prove how sympathetic they are because it proves they're a better person than you.

Not that the people claiming "yeah, keep talking about how much you care about Boston - meanwhile, Asia just got hit with an earthquake that killed far more people" are any better.

/the only way to win is to not play
//remember that whole Matthew 6:5 thing? Practice it, substituting your own good works for the devotion to God stuff and it still applies.
