    Did anybody see the April issue of Maxim magazine? I was just reading it in my library (the crapper), and got to an article titled "Why the Sports World Hates Boston." I haven't read the article yet, but I can tell it's gonna p*ss me off just by a line in the first paragraph.

    Here's the link: http://www.maximonline.com/Whythesportsworldhatesboston/articles/19555.aspx


    Mods: I didn't know if I should put this here. If it belongs somewhere else, forgive me and move it to the correct place. I figured this is the spot for it because it is football related and cracks on us. Thanks guys. :)

    While the losers from everywhereelseville will love (meaning hate, causing them to seethe, mutter, and curse under their breaths) the article, so will us homers! I loved it, it detailed exactly why we are proud (and to outsiders, arrogant) of our sports franchises, and what decades (centuries?) of losing have enabled us to enjoy more than any other fans in maybe the history of sports. Plus Drop Kick Murphys quotes are always worth reading in any article - particularly when beer cans are hurled.

    Great article....after so many years wanting to be the best, now, Boston we ARE!!

    The Patriots taught all the other teams how to win and they have followed suit.

    Pats are nowhere near done......

    What a great time to be a New England sports fan - eat your hearts out everywhere else, you all do really suck.

    Hahaha. That was pretty much my attitude toward everyone after that game.

    when will these numbnut ny lovin' idiots get it? babe ruth was not traded. he was bought by the mfy. that's how they won those prehistoric ws. they bought them. just like they've been trying to do since free agency started. thankfully, the sox put an end to that. just another bitter ny'er jealous of boston's supremacy.

    I just finished reading the article, and I want to punch this guy square in the mouth. Who the hell is he to make generalizations about Boston fans? Granted, he does describe a large number of fans correctly.

    But what I have a huge issue with is this line:

    Excuse me pal. I have not become an @sshole.














    I've ALWAYS been one!:rocker:

    I read it - it was amusing. While a die-hard Pats fan I am not a "Boston" sports fan so I can see both sides of the article. Sometimes you have to laugh at yourself.....

    Really what it proves is that winning teams get inside people's heads, and it just so happens the Boston area has 2 teams that have won a bunch of championships lately and a 3rd is making a run, so naturally people find a way to knock the whole area down. You don't hear a lot of smack about Dallas fans lately do you?

    I guarantee if you saw a person wearing Seattle sports gear (M's, Seahawks) everyday going to work, you'd probably only really notice it the day after Seattle wins a championship.

    Thanks. Gotta enjoy the hate while it lasts. Better than being a lovable loser.

    (Yes, he even spells out that option.)
