There was an extraordinary moment Saturday night when Boston bombing victim Jeff Bauman served as banner captain for the Boston Bruins.
Now THIS picture should be plastered all over the media, said one post on the 27-year-olds Facebook page. They put up enough photos of poor Jeff in a time of distress, show him in his glory.
Baumans lower limbs were blown apart when bombs went off near the finish of the Boston Marathon where he had been waiting for his girlfriend to finish.
I want to thank everyone for their amazing support for me and all those injured and their families, he said in a statement on Saturday. Im making great progress and I thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
He asked for privacy as he recovers. I want to thank the Bruins players and organization for the generosity and support for all those impacted. Like all those in Black and Gold I cant wait to see them on another quest for the cup. Go Bruins!
In a now iconic photograph from marathon day, Bauman is shown holding what is left of his legs, while rescuers speed him to emergency help. The story of Carlos Arrendondo the hero in the cowboy hat is now well known.
Gasp! I didn't know that. I was wondering what the special deal with cowboy hat was. He seemed like anyone else just helping... Now, WOW! GOD Bless him!
Oh yea, I’m with you! Go Hawks!!
Take a leap dimwit, you’re too naive & ignorant to bother engaging.
I went to UND, same as Johnathan Toews. Go Blackhawks. It will be hard fought, but they have the potential. We shall see.
Did you see that backhand play, sliding towards the net, that Jonathon had last period?! Whoa!
Great game, I’m loving it!
Did you go to UND before or after him?
Long, long before him. I was there in 1966. Dennis Hextall was there before that. I am retired Air Force, and soon to retire from California state service, then I am moving to the Philippines. I will be able to see games over there, on NHL Game Center. I guess they blew it today, however. Must not have played their normal puck control game.
