The Chicago Cubs are going to the World Series. First time anyone can say that with truth to it since 1945. The Cleveland Indians will make their first appearance since 1997. The Cubs haven’t won it all in 108 years and the Indians haven’t taken home the trophy in 68 years. History is before us and it feels humbling to witness it. But you know who else is in the World Series this year? A lot of former Boston Red Sox.

The twisted metal spire was once an antenna that stood atop one of the Twin Towers and serves as a somber reminder of 9/11 in Washington’s Newseum. The wall behind the antenna is adorned with the front pages of newspapers around the world that featured stores from the fateful day.

This tower looms as one of the focal points of Washington D.C.’s Newseum. Towers such as this, garrisoned with Communist soldiers, line the Berlin Wall during the Cold War. These towers kept watch for any citizens attempting to escape from the atrocities of East Berlin to the safety of West Berlin. Photo by Spencer Kosior.

The Bruins lost Loui Eriksson and Chris Kelly to free agency, and bought out Dennis Seidenberg’s contract.

The second he stepped onstage of the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion amphitheater, Chance the Rapper had a stronghold on the sold out crowd eagerly waiting to hear the music sensation. Donning his signature ‘3’ baseball cap, the 23-year-old’s presence offers such a welcoming, vibrant, and positive energy that it can fill a venue as soon as he walks in. He certainly did just that on Thursday, September 29, when his Magnificent Coloring World Tour came to Boston.
