It’s been a little over a week since downtown blew up and everything went to hell, but since then Boston Strong has become the catchphrase for how we’ve all held up. The whole tough New Englander attitude, some would say “crusty”, is well known. We’re tough people and down through generations we’ve been through a lot.
I have no idea who it was who coined the phrase. I hope it wasn’t some marketing VP somewhere who’s made a mint from it. It has helped, and it has spawned Watertown Strong and Collier Strong, on their own indications of what we’ve been through separately and together and how we’ll persevere.
Check out some of the images, below the cut, that have come up in the last week plus that I’ve liked the best or that I think are the funniest representation of Boston Strong.
And they also did this. Thanks, New York.
And the Broad Street Bullies in my hometown did this.
And some humor and local color for you.
And, finally, some Boondock Saints for you. If you haven’t seen the movies, go out and rent/Netflix/Redbox/download them (not you, Mom) and watch them. They’re great fun. Then these will also make sense.
And with that I say, Amen. I hope you enjoyed.
P.S. I can’t believe I forgot to let the animal kingdom have their say.
