Links in memoriam of 9/11.

The outstanding Bugs & Cranks republishes a moving, must-read column written by Brad Bortone. The author descibes the scene–and feelings–of the first game at Shea following the tragedy of 9/11. I usually post excerpts from the stories that I provide links to, but I think you should just read it in full at the site.

Going Five Hole’s Sean Leahy tells his 9/11 story and honors those from the hockey family that were lost that day.

MLB.com has all of the special ceremonies that will happen around the league today.

Unrestricted reminds you to fly the flag.

In Game Now has a salute to all of the athletes that have served our country.

And finally, here is my 9/11 story.

    Many thanks for the nod. It’s amazing how out of all the games that have been played, and all the tributes we’ve seen, how many people have reflected on 9/21/01.

    It’s an honor to be included here.

    Best to all.
