Is Boston America's new Title Town?

As Bill Simmons noted: (http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6669763/a-black-gold-day-boston-finally)
Another sign: My buddy Sully's son Aidan said last night, "My grand slam is complete — 10 years, all four teams." He was talking about Boston championships. And the fact that he's only 10 years old. Good God.

I mean, if Boston or Green Bay are the only things on the table, I choose to never watch sports again. Ugh.

Don't make me send Brett Favre over the play for Cubs!

He would be a step up at any position.

Let's hear the contenders. I'm not advocating Boston as the final answer, but hokey smoke, that's a good run for the major sports.

Patriots with three
Red Sox with two
Celtics with one
Bruins with one

That is SEVEN titles in the last ten years. And NINE appearances in the final games of the post season. The Lakers series and the Giant's game could have gone the other way and even then the people saying Boston isn't title town now would still be saying the same thing. Jealous!

Lets include the entire New England Region and include college championships in the discussion! U Conn and Boston college for the win!

An NBA championship, NHL championship, two World Series and three Super Bowls since Feb. 2002 seems to suggest a Yes answer.

...and yet my wife's aunt with the horrible Boston accent still bitches about how awful it is to be a Boston sports fan and how downtrodden they are as a fanbase. Which is why they should never be included in this discussion. Even when they're winners, they're effing losers.

"Titletown"? No. The best place to live if you're a hometown sports fan and want to celebrate championships? Yes.

"Titletown" is the nickname given to Green Bay. Period. You don't call Batman "Big Blue" when he starts working out. That's Superman's nickname.

No, your wife's aunt is a fucking looser. don't lump me in with that whiny bitch. My town can, and recently has, kicked your town's ass in every major sport.

Take it easy on him; he's from a AAA/College town, he doesn't know better. You also forgot to mention BU hockey in your include the colleges post, but with so many titles in so many sports it's tough to keep track.

Hate to say it, but it's not just her. I know way to many Boston fans that are on a ledge every time the Sox are down by one run in the 3rd inning of one of 162 regular season games the day after thumping their chests and rifling off a "my town kicks your town's ass" rant.

I did mean to include them, and did UNH take one as well?

They are a passionate lot I'll give you that. Thank god they have so many titles to fall back on when things get rough.

Like the Cubs don't have enough old guys who can't throw anymore and lose in bunches.

Don't forget Boston University in men's hockey.

I agree with you. Green Bay can keep the title of Titletown, I just want to see my Boston teams keep winning titles.

And the BC coed sailing team won a national title just a few weeks ago.

I would call it Titletown if I thought the Bruins had a chance to repeat. Hockey is too hard to repeat.

Nope.

'Cause the Patriots ain't in Boston. They're in Foxborogh. 30 miles away is not "in Boston".

It pains me to say it, but yeah they are. A championship in all four major North American sports in a 10 year span. I don't think that's ever been done. Certainly not in the past 50 years.

The NY Jets and NY Giant are in New Jersey.

The Patriots victory parades are always in Boston.

Fair enough. Oh, did I mention that there is a Championship parade in Boston today? We don't need to rely on a single team for that shit. We are title town.
