David Sprague considers himself a true Mid-Missourian. He went to the University of Missouri, lived at the Lake of the Ozarks and Jefferson City. He still cheers for the Cardinals and pulls for the Chiefs. The former Missourinet Sports Director, settled down in the Boston area with his wife and their three young children, including a daughter who is just a week old. However, after what he saw and experienced this week, he now considers himself a true Bostonian.

I wanted to talk with David to get an idea of how people are coping with the shock and ever changing events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing. As you listen to him, you can sense the shock and disbelief of how something like this can happen, but you also get the feeling that the city will rebound and come back stronger than ever.

David is a part of the Mizzou Alumni Association in Boston and he and some fellow Mizzou alum were planning on taking in Friday’s Royals-Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Whether or not the game is played is yet to be determined, but he said once the immediate danger is cleared, it’s important to show the world that the people of Boston are not afraid to live their lives.
