Boston Sports Fans NEED Wins

Posted: Apr. 18th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Due to so many impressive seasons in Boston's professional sports scene, winning has become paramount to anything else. Otherwise the fans quickly lose hope in their team and sales begin to peter off until a winning streak comes around again.

Boston’s last lovable loser was Cliff Clavin. In the 20 years since he slammed his final stein at Cheers, however, a lot has changed.

Where once our teams were defined by their futility — remember the Curse of the Bambino, the Super Bowl Shuffle and too many men on the ice? — we’ve since morphed into Titletown, with all four of the major franchises hoisting their respective championship trophies during the past 10 years.

It says something, in fact, that the local team with the longest title drought is none other than the Patriots, who haven’t won it all since the 2004 season (remember when we used to brag about three Super Bowl rings in four years?)
