David Ortiz and Mariucci Sports have teamed to offer a commemorative autographed bat with the words “This is our f—ing city” emblazoned right on the barrel. The perfect gift for the little slugger on your Christmas list who wants to tell the terrorists “Not in our f—ing house.”
Here’s A Victim Of The Boston Marathon Bombing Throwing Out The First Pitch For The Red Sox, From His Wheelchair
The Boston Red Sox continued to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon, bombing, last night. Ron Brassard was standing 10 feet away from the bomb and was struck in the leg. He threw out a ceremonial first pitch for the Sox yesterday, from his wheelchair. The mother of Krystle Campbell, a 29-year-old who died in the bombing, threw one out, too. Sports don’t suck.
Former pitching star Jack Morris, now a broadcaster for the Blue Jays, has accused Red Sox hurler Clay Buchholz of throwing a spitball. Controversy ensues, including Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley calling on Morris to kindly shut up.

Here It Is: The Boston Red Sox Hold A Moving Pre Game Ceremony For First Home Game Since Marathon Bombing (VIDEO)
After nearly a week of tragedy compounded by uncertainty and, ostensibly, a county-wide lockdown, the Boston Red Sox return home to different city. An exhausted, stronger, relieved city in mourning. Now begins picking up the pieces, and the long road back to normalcy. Today’s matchup against the Royals marks the first home game for city’s favorite team, nay, thing, just down the street from the chaos of Monday’s marathon bombing.
Tributes to the city of Boston continue to pour in from the world of sports, with the Yankees making yet another classy gesture on Tuesday by playing the Red Sox anthem Sweet Caroline during their home game on Tuesday (video following the jump). But Stephen Colbert’s on-air tribute to beantown may have been the best one of all.
For Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon, the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon have had a bigger impact than most. The former Rex Sox player used to live on the same block where the explosions occurred.
