First sporting game in New England city since last Monday's deadly attacks
snip
"The Red Sox paid an emotional tribute to the people of Boston this afternoon in a moving pregame ceremony at Fenway Park, the first time since last Monday's deadly terrorist attacks that killed three and left more than 180 wounded.
Designated hitter David Ortiz exclaimed 'this is our f***ing city' to rapturous cheers, and some tears, after a moving video, encapsulating the horror and heroism of the past few days, played on the big screen.
Proud Bostonians could be seen watching the game, many of them clutching American flags. The city used the significant sporting event to honor the victims and offer gratitude to the police, firefighters and medical personnel as well as strangers who risked their lives to save others after the senseless attacks."

Love Big Papi.

Met him once in a Tokyo hotel, when the Red Sox opened the season against the A's in the Tokyo Dome.

Bought two new Red Sox hats Friday. B proud.

Sox fan since '67. Saved my paper route money to buy $2 bleacher seats.

I like baseball above all other sports, but don't follow the game as I once did.

The tribute had to be very exciting to say the least especially if you were there.

I'll never forget the Brewers vs the Reds game in Milwaukee, April of 2001. It was opening night and the very first game being played at the new Miller Park Stadium. President Bush threw the ceremonial first pitch and the Eagle 'Challenger' a non-release bald eagle did a free flight around the dome stadium.

To top it all off, tickets for that game were very hard to come by and big money was being paid for tickets sold by season ticket holders. My son entered my name (plus other family names) for a ticket raffle by a local radio station giving away tickets for the game. My name was drawn, so the whole family got to go to the game.

Oh...Brewers won, 5-4. :)

And the FCC has approved this message with no fines being given to the networks who didn't bleep it.

Their reason..."It came from his heart".

I was thinking about this.

The game is no longer shown on broadcast television.

You either get it on cable, NESN for the red sox, or you get it on MLB.TV.

Does the fcc have authority anyway?

They think so...Personally, I don't have cable I have satelite TV, so the channels you listed come to me over the airwaves. So I'd think that the FCC probably has authority over those.

Plus if it was said over the radio, which the FCC does have authority over that. Just ask Howard Stern.

Funny or sad that London is more trusted for US news than most of our sources.

Most people here get their Boston news from Al Jazeera.

That game wasn't a national game. I agree if it had been the fcc would have jurisdiction.

But if you have cable or even satellite I don't think that you are considered public airwaves.

I think of Howard Stern who was under the fcc's thumb until he went on satellite radio.

If the viewer has to descramble the signal then I don't think there are the same restrictions.

It's also interesting that I heard that the fcc commissioner is on his way out too.

It was a cool move. Though I am glad my kids were not watching papi live.

The daily mail was extremely prolific on this story.

Story after story. Angle after angle. They must have had a dozen people reporting from Boston.

And photos! They had photos on Saturday night that the globe and herald didn't have till the next day.

It might say something about how newspaper reporters have not been as "pink slipped" on UK as they have in the US.
