    I thought Boston already won the Titletown crown at ESPN a week ago or so. :confused:

    I'm betting right now that Green Bay, Wisconsin wins.

    No they don't stack up to Boston in terms of all the Championship caliber teams, but for some reason they always turn out to stuff the ballot box, in similar polls.

    Boston is Titletown, but I don't think we win (unless everybody forwards the link to their Boston EMailing list :)).

    I voted for Beantown. Not sure what Green Bay was doing on that list since they only have a pro football team and haven't won a title in 12 years. :confused:

    You're not being fair! Think of all the NBA titles that Green Bay has won, not to mention those thrilling, seven-game series that they always seem to find themsevles in, deep into October. And how about those NHL banners hanging over the skating rink outside of Lambeau field? :rolleyes:

    It depends how far back you want to go. This decade? Boston is the only titletown.

    It's ESPN. Most of those comments are knee slappers.

    Why would I want to vote for Boston? Screw Boston and Menino. There
    wouldn't let the Pats build there and sent them to Foxboro. I would never
    vote for that pile of corruption and crime.

    That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Would you want just a stadium and not be able to tailgate in the City, I’m assuming you have never been to Boston before because if you had you would know that were is no room for a huge stadium and a parking lot.

    I'm pretty sure they mean Boston and the surrounding area, or more exactly the Boston TV market.

    Also... isn't your name Boston Patriot??

    Yes, when they were the Boston Patriots. To the poster who suggested my
    knowledge of Boston isn't sufficient to comment, I would say you what you
    know about Boston wouldn't amount to a pimple on your arse compared to
    my knowledge about Boston.

    I hope every New Englander doesn't choose not to vote, just because they don't like Menino. Absurd!

    Most of it, some of the CT area is actually part of the NY TV market if we want to split hairs. In general, though, since there are 20 cities up there and not just Boston, I don't think they mean to confine the contest to within the city limits, but rather to the market where the teams in that area are located.

    Let's put it this way, if I went on a rant against Pujos (and no, I don't know what they are either), you'd wonder why my name was Pujo despite my hatred for them.

    I think BP's wife must have died or something because he's been a hurricane of disdain lately.

    I’d have to agree, “title” is the key word here and if you sum them all up (all pro and college championships) there is a strong case for Boston

    Go back to the 20's and it isn't. After all, the Yankees alone have one less championship than the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics combined. Bruins do have one more championship than the Rangers, but the Knicks add 2, giving Boston one less title when just comparing the 4 major pro sports. Of course nobody cares about titles won 80 years ago.

    That gets ridiculous though they have so many professional sports teams in the same city, gives those cities an advantage
    I realize you could play devils advocate with this comment but I was just throwing it out there

    The Patriots and Boston never had much in common even when they were
    playing there and named after the city. They were like homeless street people
    to the city. Hey, if you want to shower Boston with the title go for it. The
    Sox have two championships in the last 90 years and the Celtics one in the last
    25. Bruins can't sniff a playoff much less a championship. Sounds good to me.

    And what pro football team do most football fans in Boston watch? Really, are you insisting that Boston merely includes championships won within the city limits of Boston, as opposed to the general area? I can guarantee that's not what the poll is about, else Foxboro would have been a seperate choice.
