Sick and Tired of Boston Sports Yet?

As Michael Wilbon of ESPN says, “I’m sick and tired of Boston, when will you people stop!”  The Red Sox won the World Series, the Patriots are undefeated and, likely, the best team in football and last night, the Revolution (soccer, for those of you who don’t know we play the sport in the US) won the MLS Eastern Conference Championship to advance to the MLS Cup (yes, that’s the final, championship game).

Oh yeah.  The Celtics are undefeated, too.

“We are the champions, my friend.  And we’ll keep on fighting to the end . . .”

Update: Just saw this picture in the latest Sports Illustrated.  I guess Wilbon was right.

Wow!  That was a big game.  The Pats squeaked by with the victory after coming from behind – much like the Colts did earlier this year during last season’s AFC Championship game.  The best regular season football game ever?  I dunno, but it certainly was a matchup of the two best teams in football and it was a very hard-played game.

At times, both teams looked like they were struggling, although certainly the Patriots looked like they were in deeper trouble for the first three quarters.  I attribute that to the quality of the 11 guys on the other side of the ball – for both teams.  The somewhat suspect Patriots D did a great job in the Red Zone.  Without those defensive stands, the score would have been quite a bit different.  Joseph Addai is really incredible.

It may have been a different game if Marvin Harrison weren’t hurt.  On the other hand, it may have been a different game if the officials weren’t playing for Indy.
