Nook Schoenfeld has not received any gifts yet
So in the aftermath of the terrorist act in Boston, sporting events were suspended. Then after they caught the dudes responsible, they made a big bubba hubba about Boston strong. This was all good and I was proud for that city. Then, when they had a chance to shine, they blew it..., big time.
The Red Sox came back to life and had a large crowd complete with Neil Diamond singing at the park etc. It was a spectacular event well caught on all the networks. An outdoor venue…Continue
