Yankees Honor Boston

I’m a Red Sox fan through and through, and I never thought I’d say this, but the New York Yankees are a classy organization. From a die-hard Sox fan who thought you were all bums for 28 years, thank you. You’re no longer bums - just our fellow ballplayers, and fellow Americans.

On top of all this, the Yankees will be having a moment of silence, followed by the singing of “Sweet Caroline” at the bottom of the third inning.

From the bottom of my Red Sox heart, thank you, New York.

UPDATE: Here's video of fans at Yankee Stadium singing "Sweet Caroline" in the third inning. A classy gesture that extended to ballparks all across the country last night.
