Killing that girl in Boston is the single worst instance of the results of sports hooliganism that I have ever seen.
I am glad to hear that the Boston police are taking responsibility.
But the fans who were causing a ruckus too-- they should be ashamed. They are responsible too. And they must resolve to keep themselves under control in the future.
And the Mayor and management of Boston-- they are the ones who set the policies-- these policies must change TODAY.
Instead of cracking down on alcohol, how about just asking people to stay home from the damn game unless they promise to treat it as a game... No one should live their lives as if it really mattered to them in any way.
Win or Lose-- Celebrate the team's efforts. Promise to do better next year if you lost. Forget about it if you lose. After all, it is just a game. That someone like that girl was killed shows how badly out of control we are as a nation.
Show your support for peace and games and that you take responsibility and that you will work to insure that this kind of thing should never happen again-- Bring a rose to Fenway or to St. Louis to throw on the field for Victoria.
And never let this happen again.
