Panda Invites 'The Boston Shoveler' To Opener

After the worst blizzard since the epic 1978 maelstrom, somebody went to the iconic Boston Marathon finish line and shoveled it out. At first, nobody—not even the Boston Police—knew who carried out the noble gesture. Then, it was revealed that Chris Laudani—a bartender near the finish line—was The Boston Shoveler. The 25-year old Laudani has run the Marathon five times and simply felt the need to re-state the Boston Strong ideal to help get the area through the snowfall. Said Laudani, "It is truly an honor to be a part of this, but do remember this has nothing to do with me. I am a small part in a giant, constantly spinning cog that makes this city and our marathon so great." When new Bostonian Pablo Sandoval saw the story, he was moved to invite Laudani—as his guest—to Opening Day at Fenway. Something tells me we're going to really like The Panda.
