    this cant be denied anymore. Since the anti-Boston sports irritant who used to call WEEI died in 2001, its now up to 6 sports titles.

    has anyone else noticed this, people??

    Seems like you've got a rock solid therory there.

    Just for kicks, does anyone know how many titles we had before he passed away?

    That should be easy...we had 16 Celtics banners and 5 Stanley Cups going back to '28??

    What makes Butch's death even more significant is that he died in mid-October 2001, the same week as the Patriots season saving comeback against San Diego which cemented Brady as the starter. The Yankees dynasty also came to an end a couple weeks later.

    It got me thinking how many of the championships I've been around for.....
    Born in 1959 just after the Celtics won their 2nd championship

    Celtics alive for 15/17
    Patriots 3/3
    Bruins 2/5
    Red Sox 2/7

    Total 22/32 Not too shabby. I may have been too young to remember a few of the early Celtic ones but these are 'the good old days"

    So is Frank from glocester responsible for any of this ... seeing how we have won all these titles when he became a celebrity on WEEI ... we need to hook Frank up to life support if need be to keep it rolling.:p
