How good we have it
I'm certainly not the oldest on the forum but at 43 having lived my entire life here I remember the lean years. The run since 2001 has been insane getting 7 titles and being within a play or two of the Patriots having two more, the Celtics another one and the Red Soxs another one. It won't always be like this for some of the younger fans who probably have become used to it. Soak it in.
This is a list of Cities with all four major sports teams and the distance between all 4 teams winning and how far they are out from their last title. Some of these cities are using multiple teams just to get on the board. Even if you discount somebody like Miami since the Panthers are a fairly new franchise it's still a 33 year span for the other three teams.
Hopefully the Pats can help break the current record or all 4 teams in 7 years and make it 3 years.
Boston: 7 years span, 12 hours from last title.
Red Soxs 2007
Chicago: 25 year span for WS fans, 103 for Cubs fans. 1 year from last title.
White Sox 2005
Dallas: Never, days from last title.
Denver: Never, 11 years from last title
Detriot 51 year span, 3 years from last title
Miami Never, 5 years from last title
Minnesota Never, 20 years since last title
New York 40 year span, 2 years from last title
Philly 59 year span, 3 years from last title
Phoenix never, 10 years from last title
Cardinals Never in Phoenix
SF Bay Area Never, won last year current champion
Raiders 1981 *1984 was LA.
DC Never, 20 years since last championship
Washington Senators 1924
"When Peyton Manning was a kid he used to go to bed at night and dream about throwing the winning touchdown for the Saints in the Superbowl. And on Sunday he did."
There's only two conclusions for Patriots fans on rookies. They are either a bust or being fitted for their bust in Canton.
