Doc Rivers was on way to Boston Marathon route when explosions occurred
Doc Rivers was one of many Bostonians soaking in Patriot’s Day — Boston’s own holiday celebrating it’s historic past and it’s future. Rivers lives not far from where the Boston Marathon ends and he had decided to head over there Monday afternoon.
That’s when the bombs went off.
Rivers recounted his story to the media, including A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.
Rivers as a coach is now part of Boston lore and he understands the city. He found the positive. He, like a lot of us, saw the heroic choices and selfless love that flowed out of an act of hatred.
