Chicago Tribune honors Boston

The Chicago Tribune on page one, honored Boston by putting the words “We are Chicago” next to logos of the Boston Sports Teams.

The Tribune also wrote some words about the tragedy at the Boston Marathon: “We are like you. We know that sports are often the ties that hold us together, that give us a way to talk about the things we care about when other words fail. We know sports can be fun — even in losing. Boys, do we know. We know that anybody who says it doesn’t matter whether the Cubs or Sox are in the World Series so long as it’s a Chicago team isn’t truly a fan of either team. We know. But on Monday, we were reminded again how fragile it all can be. The explosions and injuries and death at a world-class sporting event such as the Boston Marathon makes us heartsick. As much as it is anathema for a Chicago fan to root for any other town — especially Beantown and all of its championship rings — here we are. Hang in there, Boston.”
