The most challenging days in the world of sports are those where cold, hard reality intrudes on the fantasy world of games and play. And so it was last Apr. 15 when, while preparing to host the Monday edition of TSN Drive, the mood of that day suddenly turned dark. The Boston Marathon had been bombed. A great number of people had been injured and some had been killed. No one knew whod done it, what their motive was or what else they might have in mind. North Americans arent blind to the possibilities of terrorism, certainly not since Sept. 11, 2001. But the notion of a being maimed or killed by attending a sporting event is about as remote to our sense vulnerability as can be. That sense may in fact be the very reason the perpetrators chose the marathon, an iconic event, a symbol of spring, and something attended by people from various walks of life which attracts an international field and audience. Bomb the Boston Marathon and the message is that anything can be a target, or so those behind it surely hoped. My co-host that day one year ago was Bruce Arthur, with whom I met 30 minutes before air time to discuss that days show. We instantly agreed it felt wrong to open the program talking sports. Instead wed talk about what was unfolding in Boston for the first 30 minutes, follow the breaking news and then reassess. When we got to the bottom of the clock in that first hour, neither of us had the stomach to talk sports. It just felt wrong. And so we stuck to the matters at hand in Boston, believing our listeners understood that sports could wait for at least a day. Everyone knows what happened next. Boston became city in lock-down, sports events were cancelled, a security guard was killed, and eventually two suspects were captured, one of them dead and the other severely wounded. And in the days that followed, the question of societal response began to emerge: How would North Americans react, understanding that this type of thing wasnt restricted to marathons and could happen at any sort of large public gathering?  And since the world of sports has more large public gatherings than any other business, how would it affect ballparks, arenas and stadiums? How would this change the experience of attending a sporting event? There was the predictable response from leagues, with enhanced security measures at most venues which, depending on your point of view, is either a good thing or the further erosion of the carefree lives we used to enjoy. But any sense that the Boston bombing had somehow altered the experience of attending a sporting event in North America, that people would reconsider gathering in public to cheer on their favourite teams? That proved to be a complete myth. No, the sports world is pretty much exactly as it was before the Boston bombing. And thats significant because the most meaningful thing about sports isnt who wins or who loses or who gets paid the most money. Its the manner in which spectator sports are about sharing common experiences with others, producing a sense of oneness that few other things can deliver. Sport in a vacuum is just an empty spectacle of athletic achievement. But surround it with people who have a common perspective and it takes on its own energy and meaning, becoming as much an expression of community and culture as anything else. Thats what we saw in Boston during the weeks and months that followed the bombing, with the Bruins and then the Red Sox as symbols of the citys communal spirit. Lets be clear: a professional sports team winning in the aftermath of a tragedy doesnt make anything better, doesnt heal the wounded or bring back the dead. What it does, however, is give people a way to express their resolve and creates a sense of normalcy in what can be very troubling times. The two men who bombed the marathon sought not just to cause death and destruction but also to affect way people live their lives. In less than a week, the 2014 Boston Marathon will take place with people from Massachusetts and around the world gathering to participate. Some will be running but many, many more will be lining the streets just to be present. Not because theyve forgotten what occurred one year ago, but because they remember it. P. K. Subban Jersey. Vladimir Guerrero added a solo shot and two RBI for the Orioles, who have opened their season with five wins in six games for the first time since 2008. Jim Johnson (1-0) fanned three and allowed one hit in 1 2/3 scoreless relief innings. I have not glanced at a stat sheet or the board about batting average, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Marek Mazanec Jersey. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, and his Heisman Trophy stock was falling. http://www.hockeypredatorsshop.com/roman-josi-hockey-jersey/. - No matter the lineup or location, the San Antonio Spurs are rolling through the NBA again this spring, just the way they have for most of the last two decades. Ryan Johansen Jersey. -- The Detroit Tigers think Alex Gonzalez is not too old to be a solution to their shortstop problem. Roman Josi Jersey. The Durban-based Sharks withstood a furious second-half fightback to beat the Queensland Reds 35-20 for a fourth straight win which gave them a five-point lead atop the championship table. The Hamilton-based Chiefs scored two late tries to beat the Cape Town-based Stormers 36-20 for their third win, after the Stormers rallied from 24-6 down to 24-20 with six minutes remaining.Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray continued to steamroll the opposition Saturday in the mens draw at the Australian Open. The former Grand Slam champions have yet to drop a set through the first three rounds and each had little trouble Saturday. Nadal dropped a mere six games in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 rout of Frenchman Gael Monfils, while Federer lost only seven games in a 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 pounding of Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili. Murray, meanwhile, battled through a first-set tiebreaker before cruising the rest of the way in a 7-6 (7-2), 6-4, 6-2 victory over Spains Feliciano Lopez. The top-seeded Nadal broke Monfils serve to start the match and battled through a tough first service game of his own to set the tone Saturday night at Laver Arena. There wasnt much drama afterward. Nadal finished off the first set in 39 minutes and again breezed through the second in 36 before Monfils put up a fight in the third. Tied at 3-3, Monfils had a couple of break chances, but Nadal was up to the task each time and went on to hold serve. Monfils spirit was broken and so was his serve in the next game. Nadal then held at love to finish it. "Tonight, I think I played a great match," said Nadal. "Very happy the way that I played against a very tough opponent like Gael. So that makes the level that I played tonight better, because (it) was against tough opponent." Monfils failed on each of his six break-point chances throughout the match and committed a whopping 57 unforced errors. "Definitely, today he was in great shape," said Monfils, who went the distance against Nadal in the Doha final to start 2014. "Been a while since I played Rafa like that." Nadal, who missed last years Australian Open while recovering from a knee issue, will continue his quest for a second title in Melbourne against Japans Kei Nishikori, a 7-5, 6-1, 6-0 winner over American Donald Young. Nadal, the 2009 winner, is 5-0 lifetime against Nishikori. Federer, the four-time Aussie Open champ, is seeded sixth this year after his troubling 2013 season that featured only one tournament title and no Grand Slam finals. He hasnt had any issues beating overmatched opponents in the first three rounds this week, including Saturdays triumph. "Im happy that from my side Im winning my matches in straight sets," said Federer. "Its been different condditions every match: the heat first and the indoor match and now normal conditions today with a bit of wind.dddddddddddd So its just good to get through and get a good feel out there and make sure if youve got a chance to win your matches easier to do so." It starts to toughen up next with 10th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who advanced Saturday with a 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 6-2 win over fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon. "Its always difficult when you play a friend, Ive known him since we were nine or 10," said Tsonga about beating Simon. "Its like we create a little war." A battle against 17-time major champ Federer now awaits Tsonga, whose best Grand Slam result came with a runner-up finish to Novak Djokovic in the 2008 Australian Open final. Federer beat Tsonga in last years quarterfinals in Melbourne, but Tsonga earned a measure of revenge with a quarterfinal win at the French Open. "Its a good opportunity for me to play him again," said Tsonga. "Its always nice to play against such a good player. The tournament continues for me and Im feeling good." Murray, a three-time Aussie Open runner-up, is battling back pain, but has shown no ill effects yet. "Ive recovered well after the matches," the reigning Wimbledon champ said about his back. "You know, from time to time a bit of stiffness and soreness, but for the most part its been good." Next up for the Scotsman will be French lucky loser Stephane Robert, who has played his way into the fourth round after entering the tournament following the withdrawal of Philip Kohlschreiber. "I dont know him personally, so maybe next tournament when I see him Im going to tell him, like, thank you," Robert said when asked if he had spoken with the German. Spains Roberto Bautista Agut followed up his upset of fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 romp over Frenchman Benoit Paire and will next face Bulgarias Grigor Dimitrov, a four-set winner over 11th-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic. The fourth round starts Sunday with a quartet of matches. Djokovic will continue his push for a fourth straight Aussie Open crown against Italys Fabio Fognini, while third-seeded David Ferrer will square off against Germanys Florian Mayer. Switzerlands Stanislas Wawrinka will face Spains Tommy Robredo and Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic will battle South Africas Kevin Anderson.
