THE CITY OF BOSTON OWNS US: Admit it. They do. Boston is the big dog and we're all tiny little peons. The championship dominance demonstrated by that city with seven titles in a decade-- anchored by the New England Patriots -- is astounding. In fact we may not see anything like this again for some time. (And yes I know the Patriots aren't technically in Boston but don't be stupid. They count as a Boston team.) The Bruins' capturing of the Stanley Cup gives Boston a championship in each of the major sports in the past 10 years. That includes the once woeful and cursed Red Sox and the Celtics that post-Larry Bird weren't very good until the uniting of the The Big Three.

Cities like Cleveland have become so title desperate fans there get their thrills from watching other teams fail (see: James, LeBron). Meanwhile Boston has a wealth of riches. They have enough titles for five cities. With all due respect to one of my favorite cities, Green Bay, there's a new Titletown.

See you Friday.

How many other cities even have the 4 majors?


Detroit, Twin Cities, Dallas/Arlington, Atlanta, Phoenix, Denver, Washington D.C. San Jose I believe could be considered to be in the San Francisco area for the Sharks.  I guess you could count the Columbus Blue Jackets for Cleveland as their NHL team.  Am I missing any?  I guess the "4 majors" club isn't quite as exclusive as you thought.

NY has 7 teams.
Chicago has 5.
Philly has all 4.
Green Bay/Miluakee - no hockey.
Cleveland - no hockey.
Pittsburgh - no basketball
LA - no football (San Diego?)
Miami? only have a strong football fanbase.

Typical Boston fans... your baseball team doesn't win a World Series for like 100 years, your football team never won anything until the 2000's, and your hockey team hasn't won since the 70's.  Then you get a little run of success and act like it's the norm.  Once you get a freakin' TITLE TROPHY named after someone on your team, then we'll talk.

what a joke of a article this guy needs to lay off the crack. 2 of the 4 teams were caught cheating so that combined with that fact that no one cares about hockey anymore only leaves the Celtics and they dont have enough to earn boston that title

he Patriots Championships* are questioned by any that plays or played the sport, and understands that knowing what the defense is going to do, does indeed give competetive advantage.

They cheated.

Boston isn't title town.

That belongs to Green Bay just as America's team belongs to the Cowboys.

Mike Freeman is just an idiot that has to resort to the Howard Stern approach to garner a reaction to him nonstories and wild opinions.
