  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

As reported by the Boston Globe:
Boston College sophomore Luke Russert, the son of ''Meet the Press" host Tim Russert, will join politico James Carville as host of a new sports-themed talk show on XM Satellite Radio. Carville, who's a regular on Luke's dad's Sunday morning political talk show, said in a statement: ''This [new] show will be another opportunity for me to engage in the back-and-forth debates on sports that, until now, Luke and I have limited to the stadium." He added, ''I talk about sports the same way I talk about politics, so it's safe to assume that Luke will be wrong most of the time. . . ."
