John Gage watched the Norwegian tall ship Sørlandet, come into Boston Harbor today.
Note from a pedantic linguistics major: You can't say "the Sørlandet," as "Sørlandet" by itself means "the southern land." (That "et" ending is the definite article.) It's like saying "ATM machine," which I'm sure no proper Bostonian ever says.
Because I'm always up for a good pedantic linguistic note!
