Bruins/Sabres National Anthem
The recent Boston bombings have been on everyone’s minds this week, with an overwhelming amount of support for Boston throughout the country. The hashtag #BostonStrong has been trending on Twitter, alongside tweets of support and well wishes, including the Boston Red Sox. At a Yankees v. Diamondbacks game earlier this week, the team paid tribute to their longtime rivals, Boston Red Sox, by playing “Sweet Caroline” — the song that’s become a staple of the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The first Boston home game (Boston Bruins played Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden) gave us what could arguably be one of the best National Anthem performances ever. Rene Rancourt, who was intended to sing the song, got through only a few lines before the entire crowd joined in. They sang the rest together.
