I disagree. There are "rules" and "regulations" about and where you can put advertising up in this state, and to launch a promotional campaign like this in a city that had two planes stolen from it by terrorists, has ports to guard, and a measure of economic importance, with no warning to state officials is irresponsible at best.

There's no way to know at a glance that something is "safe." Remember the day when we used to think shoes were safe? Now they've got to be Xrayed when you go through security because someone decided to use them improperly.

Apparently in other places, they did notify the states, but if they hadn't, I'd be inclined to believe that MA was the only state that responded appropriately.

There's no way to spin this good for Boston, it's a JOKE how they reacted. Don't you think after the first one was found "Boston's finest" should have realized that it was nothing? Shouldn't they have informed the media and public and not cause a mass hysteria.

Shouldn't someone in the Boston FBI office have realized that the Flinstones just caused a massive panic a little sooner?

I work across the street from where one of "them" were and it was ridiculous...

Near $1,000,000 of my tax dollars was spent for absolutely nothing.

NYC is a city that has had problems, and they're laughing at how we reacted (and the rest of the country is too).

I live and work in this city and there's CONSTANTLY signs and guerrilla marketing done via flyer's, graffiti, and what have you. These boxes were up for WEEKS.

The BU Police found them first and just took them down...

If a circut board and wires can cause this to happen in Boston, then it shows how Puritain our city still is, and out of touch with the real world.

Look at our politics. Look at the big dig. This city is great, but it's a joke how it's run...

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
