Boston Sports Fans: Very Very Very Fortunate

Here are my Top Ten Reasons why Boston Sports Fans are Fortunate:

1. We have the best HC and best QB in professional football.

2. Our football team was the Team of the last decade and was a true Dynasty.

3. The Dynasty may not be over and we get to watch Belichick and Brady try to keep it going next season.

4. We are the only City to have teams in both the NBA and NFL playoffs.

5. Our baseball team plays for the most awesome, historic and beautiful ballpark in sports.

6. We get to root for a warrior like Paul Pierce.

7. This weekend we have three baseball games and two playoff games.

8. On Monday night, we have two playoff games and one baseball game.

9. Our baseball team is no longer in the middle of a decades long curse.

10. We got SEVEN titles in the last decade.

I know there are countless other reasons why we are fortunate.

Why do you think we are fortunate?

But hey I dont mind hearing you talk about it love reading it and the passion behind it

So don't stop

I think I can explain how I feel about the teams and the only people who would get it are
people who follow my teams and love them as much as I do and live breath and cry and yell and scream and heart all we are when we talk about them or watch them play

Its a good thing a very good thing we are so fortunate and sometimes just saying that people will just nod and go yeah we are

All excellent points, DS.

Reminds me of my very first post here at PP:

http://www.patriotsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=28855

These are the Salad Days, my friends!
Just think about it- in 30 years when we are all sitting at the family table with out kids and grandchildren, we will be talking about RIGHT NOW when we talk about our "remember when" days as sports fans. Noone could have ever even dreamt that it would be this good, and it sure won't ever come remotely close to being this good again. Just think about it.....

We are in the middle of watching the GREATEST FOOTBALL DYNASTY EVER pull off a 19-0 season, 4th Championship out of 7 years (with more to come), and are so good they are hated on and despised across the league by players and fans alike. We now all now know what it feels like to be Yankees fans. Bill Belichick- THANK YOU.

Our Beloved Red Sox have won 2 out of the last 4 World Series (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and are stacked to make another run. Absolutely unbelievable- I would have sold my SOUL after 2003 for the Red Sox to win just ONE..........just........unbelievable. All the generations of pain, suffering, and misery can now rest easy and we can actually sit back, watch a game, and not pull out our teeth because we know that Theo and company have a plan, and it's working pretty damn good so far!

The Celtics? Well........looks like the run of horrible luck we had coming to us (for being so dominant for so long) has ended after 20 years. The Celtics were so bad for so long, they had gone past the point of being irrelevant and were dead to most of us Boston sports fans. What a difference 6 months makes- they are now must watch TV and the hottest ticket in town. They may not win it all this year, but I have found myself actually watching entire games.

As for the Bruins? Keep up the good work Boys! Keep playing hard and that faith will creep back slowly!




All in All, this has been the year of the perfect storm for us New England fans. New England Teams have a very realistic shot at taking 3 out of 4 Championships. Red Sox have already done their part, We KNOW the Pats will get there, And the Celtics have proven that they have the dogs to at least hang with The Pistons and Spurs ( We will see come playoff time). We will be happy just to see the bruins back in the tournament and playing good hockey (baby steps)

Sit back and Enjoy, everyone- because it's NEVER gonna be this good again.
