    I don't think a city has owned all three rings. I think a baseball/football champisonship has only happened in the same city twice. Boston in 2004 and Pittsburgh in 1979.

    Go for five. Get the MLS Cup and the Stanley Cup to add to the other 3 titles.

    If you count New York's run in 1969-70 with the Jets, Mets and Knicks winning
    but they also have two or more teams in every sport (3 in NHL)

    The calendar year 1986 was pretty good with the Red Sox hitting the World Series, Celtics winning the championship, and Patriots playing in the SB.

    They didn't close two of those the deals but that's a pretty good run.

    Of course the Patriots were the '85 Patriots playing in the SB in '86. That's not quite the correct year (calendar year only.)

    During the 1986 season both the New York Mets and New York Giants were champs

    Don't forget the MLS' New England Revolution, who are in the MLS Championship Game for the 3rd straight year, after beating the Chicago Fire last night.

    PLEASSSSSSEEEEEEEEE

    do not put soccer in the same sentence as hockey.

    Along with Football, hockey is the only other real sport.

    Someone once said, if your talking about the Bruins 75 miles outside of Boston, they will think your talking about UCLA (paraphrase).

    RIP Red.

    In 1954, the Cleveland Indians won the American League Pennant, the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship and the Cleveland Barons, a minor league hockey team, won its league.

    However, the Indians did NOT win the world series, despite the fact that they won 111 games--that's not a typo--in the regular season. They were swept in four games by the NY Giants, with the help of Willie Mays.

    I was a high school kid at the time, living in a small town 25 miles from Cleveland, but somehow I managed to get tickets to the fifth game of the World Series. They were in high demand since the Indians hadn't gotten to the series since 1948.

    But Bob Feller, Bob Lemon, Mike Garcia and Early Wynn--all of them 20-game winners in the regular season--failed to prevail in a single game in the World Series.

    It was then that I ceased to be an Indians fan.

    I've always thought that New York meant the city, which means the greater metropolitan area.

    Nobody would call the team that actually plays in New York, the "New York Bills".

    Anyway, there certainly shouldn't be any doubt that a team playing in Foxborough gets their rings credited to Boston. (for these purposes)

    We'd need to have an NHL team in Boston to be able to do that.
