Given the Boston Bruins’ Stanley Cup beatdown of the Vancouver Cannots, even the Big Paper in the Big Town is forced to state the obvious:
[T]his city has ridden an unprecedented wave of success over the past decade: the Bruins’ victory in the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night made Boston the first city to win championships in all four major sports within a 10-year span.
With the Patriots’ Super Bowl victories in 2002, 2004 and 2005; the Red Sox’ World Series titles in 2004 and 2007; the Celtics’ N.B.A. title in 2008; and now the Bruins’ triumph, Boston has gone from Loserville to Titletown, just like that.
And just like New York hasn’t. As a Made Yankee Fan in Boston, I tip my cap to Made Boston Fans in Boston.
