Happy Patriots' Day

Boston's favorite holiday, Patriots' Day celebrates the first battles of the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Lexington and the Battle of Concord, the site of that "shot heard round the world." Today, April 19, is the "official" Patriots' Day (and the day on which the battles were fought in 1775), but the holiday is officially celebrated on the third Monday in April. The Boston Marathon is held on Patriots day and the Red Sox are always at home and play a very early 11:00 am start (which is 9:00 am here in Idaho!) I've got my Sox on during breakfast this morning. What a way to start the day!
