I gotta admit that I got a little teary eyed this past weekend when Neil Diamond made a  special appearance at Saturday's Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals game to sing the Red Sox Nation's theme song, 'Sweet Caroline.' Shirley and I have taken part in the sing-a-long in year's past, but since the marathon bombings killing and injuring so many, the song has taken on a new meaning. And the Fenway faithful have now boldly stated that nothing will keep them down. Boston, my friend, is pretty much back to normal.

Go Red Sox!
