The Patriot Place establishment was one of just five locations in the state to tap the 4:09 pale ale Wednesday – the one month anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings.
CBS Scene is raising money for the One Fund Boston through sales of a rare Wormtown Brewing Co. beer tapped Wednesday to honor the one-month anniversary of the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

In a busy sports week, which local team has your eye?
Welcome to one of the busiest weeks in sports. The Bruins are in a tough fight against the Washington Capitals in the first round of the playoffs. They'll be playing a game 7 on Wednesday night. The Celtics are looking to close out the NBA regular season in strong form. They'll be playing the Miami Heat on Tuesday and the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Patriots are preparing for the NFL draft, one of the biggest events on the football calendar. That three-day marathon starts on Thursday night.

I guess that's how winning a Stanley Cup changes a relationship. It will never be the same. Granted, we've never really left each other. There were moments now of what it was like back then. But then again, first loves are very special. Besides, too many things have changed in the relationship over the years. It was a different time and, in a way, a much different game. Players didn't wear helmets, and there were only 10 TV stations and only little more hockey teams. We've become way too busy with other things these days, and there are teams in Phoenix, …
