Just one day after the 100 year anniversary of sinking of Titanic in northern Atlantic, the early arrival of summer temperatures makes people wonder if there is still any icebergs in the sea where Titanic was hit 100 years ago.

A couple miles from Boston Marathon’s finish line in front of Boston Public Library, Boston Red Sox was shut out by Tempa Bay Rays in the annual 11 O’clock Patriot’s Day game in Fenway Park. This year also marks the 100 year anniversary of Fenway Park.

Overall, a tough day for Boston Marathon runners, hometown boys and any icebergs still hanging around in the Atlantic.
