A Message to Boston Sports Fans
There’s been a lot of griping recently over the state of Boston sports, serving (for me) as another ugly reminder of the developing, spoiled and cocksure nature of fans in this area. Let’s take a quick look, shall we?
Despite not having played superbly of late, the Celtics stand at 31-16 and hold a five-and-a-half game lead in their division over Toronto.
The Patriots finished the season at 10-6 (and a perfect 8-0 at home) and lost in the conference semi-finals to Baltimore.
The line between the Red Sox and Yankees is becoming more blurred each year (I know, I know, blasphemous!). But the Sox pay more and more to rob smaller market teams of their best players. Last year they finished 95-67 and, again, made the playoffs.
The Bruins are apparently stinking up then Garden this year but last year made a nice push into the playoffs.
