Patriots, Boston sports teams share #BostonStrong message

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, a terrifying event that reverberated all across the country.

#BostonStrong was a message throughout the entire year and it remains so on Tuesday: the Patriots, along with every single Boston-area sports team, all shared a message to the world via their respective Twitter feeds.

The bombings took place at a sporting event and there's at tie there, of course. But more than that, Boston's sports teams helped to unite the people of the area through common-shared experiences.

Whether it was the crowd singing along with the anthem at a Bruins game or David Ortiz inspiring with his profanity-filled speech before a Red Sox game, the people of the area were touched by their sports teams.

One year later, we're reminded of why.
