Papelbon Stunned: ‘Lives Are Ruined. For What?’

Boston Marathon ExplosionThe Phillies sat in silence this afternoon as a horrific scene played on the TVs above them inside the visitors’ clubhouse at Great American Ball Park.

At least two bombs exploded at the end of the Boston Marathon with multiple deaths and injuries reported.

Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon played seven seasons with the Red Sox and lived above the popular steakhouse Abe and Louie’s, where one of the explosions detonated. He carried a blank look on his face as he shared his thoughts before a game against the Reds.

“It’s sad, man,” he said. “Patriot’s Day is a big thing in Boston. Sox play at 11 o’clock. It’s all ruined. Families are ruined, lives are ruined. For what? It’s just sad.

“I’m looking at it right now and I’m like, damn, I used to live right there.”

Papelbon said he has tried to contact people in Boston, but has had no luck.

“It’s kind of surreal,” he said. “I don’t know man, it’s crazy. It’s hard to even think about. … Hopefully the city can rally and make things better, but it’s going to be tough.”

Papelbon is a complete ignorant and he’s too stupid to understand the gun control law being promoted by the gov’t. Nobody wants to take your gun, you creep!
