I know many of you watched the Master’s this past weekend. It seems like this tournament is the launching pad for the golf season. At least here in New England. We New Englanders have time-honored traditions for sports and for the many golfers here, watching the Master’s is one of them. It springs us into a feeling of hope…hope for warmer days and golf courses opening their tees and greens for the first rounds of the season. The event was something to watch; it was riveting..best golf I’ve seen in years and packed with drama. I thought the word indescribable would be a perfect descriptor for some of those moments.The slow play penalty given to the 14-year-old amateur. The bad ball drop by Tiger and the emotional win by Adam Scott..amazing moments in golf.
Then on Monday, we were rocked to our core by a senseless act of violence. The Boston Marathon is always a day, rain or shine, of hope and inspiration. It brings people together from all walks of life and all the corners of the world. Many would say that the feeling of accomplishment “running Boston” is indescribable.
This past Monday however, the only word I can use to describe the event that took place is unimaginable. My deepest sympathy goes out to all those who have been effected by this tragic event.
