Wise move of the day

'Boston Massacre'shirts not available

Nike has removed shirts with the phrase "Boston Massacre" from distribution in light of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings. The shirts, which included blood splattered across the white letters, were marketed to Yankees fans and primarily sold at Nike outlet stores. "Boston Massacre" refers to the Yankees' late-season sweep of the Red Sox in 1978 that helped them force a one-game playoff for the American League East title.
