An horrific week in Boston came to end on Friday night with the killing and capturing of the two Boston Marathon Bombers. On Saturday, singer/songwriter Neil Diamond surprised baseball fans at Boston's Fenway Park, taking the field during a Red Sox game to lead the crowd in a sing-along of his classic hit, "Sweet Caroline."
Diamond and his wife flew to Boston not only to sing to the crowd but wanted to personally thank and express his gratitude to the first responders and law enforcement officers.
Diamond lifted the spirits of Boston residents with a surprise performance of "Sweet Caroline," the team's unofficial anthem.
It was a bright moment for the city that was in lock down mode on Friday. Saturday marked the first game at Fenway Park since the bombings. An emotional scene.
The Buffalo Bills received some bit of good news on Sunday when the NY Jets traded Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay.
In return for the three-time All-Pro, the Jets receive the No. 13 overall pick in Thursday's draft and a conditional 2014 fourth-rounder that bumps to a third-rounder if Revis is on the Bucs' roster on the third day of the 2014 league year. The Jets hold the 9th and 13th overall selections.
Carmello Anthony finished with 36 points, leading the Knicks to an 85-78 victory Saturday in game one vs the Celtics. Anthony has the most pressure of any player in the playoffs. He needs to win. New York has not won a postseason series since 2000
Anthony shot only 13 for 29 from the field but made consecutive buckets down the stretch in the final quarter, when the Knicks held Boston to three baskets and eight points. For Anthony to take his place among some of the all time great Knick players, he needs to save his best at the end of games while getting the team to the NBA Finals.
