AROUND THE WEB:

— Residents of Aaron Hernandez’s Connecticut hometown held a candlelight vigil for the former NFL star, who committed suicide in prison last week. Approximately 200 people attended the vigil in Bristol on Monday night after Hernandez’s private funeral took place in the same town earlier that day. Members of the community gathered for the vigil in front of the football field where Hernandez played as a child.

“This is our way of being able to say our final goodbyes,” said Malique Ritchon, a cousin of Hernandez. “Anybody that may have went to school with him, played against him, played with him, even people that watched him play on the field.”

These members of the Bristol community knew Hernandez before his murderous activities and choose to remember him as the person he was while growing up in this town.

“The Aaron that I know was a good kid,” said Sara Vasquez, another family member. “He was my baby brother so I always saw him like a baby. He was a little, how can I say, Dennis the Menace. He would do his little jokes, but he was special.”

Hernandez’s funeral took place at the O’Brien Funeral Home in Bristol Monday afternoon.

Maurkice and Mike Pouncey were in attendance, along with Brandon Spikes and Andre Dixon. Also in attendance were Hernandez’s fiancee Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, the couple’s daughter, Hernandez’s mother, Terri, older brother, DJ, and family lawyer Jose Baez.

— Madison Bumgarner spoke out Monday on the dirt bike accident that put him on the disabled list with an injured left shoulder. The pitcher was involved in the accident on Thursday in Colorado.

“I realize that was definitely not the most responsible decision I’ve made,’’ Bumgarner told reporters with his arm in a sling. “It sucks not being able to be out here with my guys trying to help us win games. It’s very unfortunate. I’ve talked to a lot of them and they know where I’m at. Everybody’s been supportive.”

Bumgarner believes he will be out for 6-8 weeks with the sprain. This is his first time on the DL in his nine-year career.

“We don’t think he’s out for the season,’’ trainer Dave Groeschner said. “But I don’t have a timeline right now.’’

“I wish I had some kind of cool story for you that it was some kind of crazy wreck, but it really wasn’t anything spectacular, just super unfortunate,’’ said Bumgarner continued. “We were actually being pretty safe the whole time. It was just a freak deal.’’

Bumgarner also acknowledged riding his dirt bike was a bad move.

“It’s probably not the first time I’ve made a stupid decision, but we are human,’’ Bumgarner said. “The only thing I’m putting my focus on now is busting my butt in rehab and making sure I’m getting back here and helping this team.’’

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Absolutely. 100 percent.” — Bruce Cassidy, when asked if he wants to remain the Bruins coach next season

He's just going to be again. Okay I'll keep you and me but if he's that he's not a good coach because I know what a good coach on site.
