I know, there's a long way to go.

any other Celtic fairweather fans wonder where the hell JON came from considering how poorly he played when he was out there this season? Or is this the first game you watched? I was not expecting that but they're gonna need it, he was a beast.

Coming from a fan who represents the most fairweather city in sports.


:l

Haha. I am not going to get into a whole thing here, but Boston is in the top tier of pro sports towns with two or three other cities.

Just an example. It's not an indictment of anybody who posts on here because they're likely the exception rather than the rule, but anybody who follows baseball or football knows that they seemed to meet a lot more Red Sox and Patriots fans after their respective success. I know winning breeds fandom, but I don't think I ever recall the phrase "Red Sox Nation" muttered before 2004. It's too bad because their first championship is a great story.

Detroit fans are probably not at the top of the list, but their fan base has stayed relatively strong through thick and thin (outside of the Tigers in the early 2000s when they were probably the worst franchise in sports). Not to mention the city has arguably been the country's greatest casualty since the economy tanked. Even the Lions post excellent attendance numbers every year and did during the Millen years. If the Millen years ever took place in Boston their arenas would be ghost towns.

Two scenarios I'd love to see:

-Chicago/LA final with Chicago beating LA.
-OK City winning it all with Durant taking over the throne of the NBA's elite player. He's the exact guy the NBA needs to succeed to finally shed the thug image... even though that should have been removed from people's heads years ago.

Portland making a deep run would be cool as well seeing how unlucky they've been, but they aren't that exciting to watch. Storywise, I'd rather see Denver make a run.

The Patriots have sold out every game since the 1994 opener. Patriots record in 1993 5-11. How many blackouts have the Lions had since then? I believe they had one last season, and flirted with at least a couple of others...

Pistons attendance in 2008 was 100%. Pistons attendance in 2011? 75.5% 3rd worst in the NBA. Yup New New Englanders are the fair weather fans.

Ted Turner should run for President. American politics can go all the way and just become a reality show.

Oh, and I agree with everybody in this thread, Boston sports teams suck, starting with the Bruin and followed closely by the Sox and Celtics. I have no opinion on the Patriots - they should go back to the Tony Eason, Flutie, Seth Grogan days with the squating guy on their helmets.
