Is there a better sports town than Boston. We have had seven championships, in a 10 year span, from four different sports. Not to mention some ncaa champs. SORRY VANCOUVER!!

Has there been any riots in Boston? Here is L.A. we've had some good ones. What's up with Vancouver?

No problems here in boston, in the past we have had some ugly scenes, but believe it or not, its usually the college kids causing the mayhem, and they have all headed home for the season. Plus Boston is very proactive when it comes to crowd control, and we have done this many times now.

Matt, you can't count the New England Patriots as a Boston team any more than The Packers belong to Milwaukee.

New England is a region, Boston is a city. Foxboro was selected as neutral site.

The Patriots, a team without a home city.

Go Flyers . . . ?

Dan
Boston is the heart , soul , and lifeline , of NEW ENGLAND. Come make that argument at a pats game, I have not seen someone thrown over the balcony in years. The Patriots are as Boston as my irish ass! While your at it , why don't you tell the new yorkers that the giants are not a new york team, they do not even play in the same state.

Matt, did you go to the parade? It looked really cool on TV and I'm sorry I couldn't go. My young son is a huge hockey fan, well, at least he keeps asking, "Where's the puck? What's that guy holding?" Answer, hockey stick.

My daughter is somewhat less enthralled with the prospect of getting stepped on by drunken strangers, so we didn't go. We hit the water, instead.

I had to do that evil work thing, and one of my boys was sick. I am not a fan of huge crowds to be honest. I did watch on tv, they said it was one of the biggest crowds ever at Boston parade.
