The Celtics wrap up their expected, yet disappointing 2013-’14 campaign tonight. They have a 25-56 record and currently hold the fifth worst record in the league.
Concurrently, yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The Celtics will certainly pay tribute to the victims, the first responders, and the people of Boston. Last year the citizens of Boston grieved for the deaths of Krystle Campbell, Sean Collier, Lingzi Lu, and Martin Richard. This year Boston is running in their honor and all of the others who suffered injuries because we are resilient and we are prideful. An attack on Boston only brought its people together. On Marathon Monday, we will cheer louder than ever for all of the runners in the beloved 26.2 mile race. Today Boston continues to recover after a year, yet we remain strong and defiant to the acts of terrorism. We will never give in to hatred because like Boston.com’s Chad Finn said, Boston is a family. Like their fans, the Celtics hope they can pick themselves up because in April 2015, the fans want to be able to see the Celtics fight for a playoff berth. Here are the tweets commemorating the city of Boston:
The city of Boston will never forget the tragic day of April 15th, 2013. The Celtics sent this tweet on Tuesday uniting the fans of Boston. Boston is known for their traditions, which include their sports teams and the deep-rooted passion from the fans of the Bruins, Celtics, Patriots, Red Sox, and Revolution. The Celtics recognized the unity between all of the teams with this message.
Celtics captain Rajon Rondo changed his Twitter avatar to the Boston Marathon ribbon. He shared the slogan that galvanized the city of Boston.
