Boston Featured On This Week's SI Cover

The April 29, 2013 regional cover of Sports Illustrated (see pic) shows Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes pumping his fists in the air as the caption reads, "STRONG. TRIUMPH AFTER TRAGEDY". Said SI managing editor Chris Stone, "Boston Strong was the story in New England this weekend, especially on Saturday, the day after the lockdown and the capture of the second of the Marathon bombing suspects. There it is: a Sox player flexing his guns after hitting a double to start a game-winning rally. At that moment, I don’t know if there’s any image that could have better captured the mood." Indeed.
